Two years after the initial recording session and almost eight years after some of the songs were written, Tyson Smith released his debut album "There's Nothing We Can't Pretend".
The variety of influences encountered during Tyson's musical meanderings is plainly evident in the 11 tracks featured on the album. With funk, rock, jazz, blues, folk and world music elements the album is nothing if not eclectic. In Tyson's own words it is "...in many ways a compilation album - pages from my musical diary penned during the last half dozen years against various backdrops..."
The album features some of Wellington's finest musicians including Darren Mathiassen (drums) and Jonathan Crayford (keys).
All the material on the album was written and arranged by Tyson and recorded and mixed when time and bank accounts allowed at Trident Studios in Wellington.

Tyson also frequently performs with singer Hollie Smith and is a member of the world music ensemble "Mundi" led by his sister Tamara. Mundi's last album "In The Blink Of An Eye" was released in 2011.
