Freya Smith

Composer | 2021 Bursary

Freya’s bursary will allow her to spend time writing her first draft of a new musical about mental health.

Since receiving the bursary…

“Along with my writing partner Jack, I was lucky enough to recently win the Fred Ebb Award for Songwriting. We flew out to New York for the ceremony and prize giving in November 2023. In 2023, the studio recording for my musical RIDE was released, and is now available on all streaming platforms. It has had over 200,000 streams.”

RIDE is heading to the US in Spring 2024, with a production at San Diego’s Old Globe.”
