in England and quickly earned a reputation for excellent value and
sound in the competitive guitar sweepstakes and today Tanglewood
is one of the highest-selling and sort after acoustic-guitar
brands in Europe.
Now National Music the Queensland based importer for this fine
brand of guitars, plus banjos, mandolins, basses, resonators,
drums, cymbals, PA equipment and amplifiers has contracted Harley
Smith to promote their range of Tanglewood guitars in Australia.
Presenting Harley with a brand new TW55 model which includes an
endorsement to represent DR Strings and G7 Capos, Tanglewood’s Don
“The company is very excited about this new arrangement with
Harley as we consider her one of the new up and coming artists in
her field and the association of this wonderful instrument with
Harley’s obvious talents is a natural blend”.
Recently married to musician Anthony Walmsley, Harley will soon
re-locate to the Central Coast from her current base in Lismore. A
writing collaboration with one of Nashville’s best, David Lee
Murphy, has fired up this dynamic performer to focus on
songwriting for her upcoming album.

on the “Brian Cadd - 40th Anniversary Concert Tour” through
Victoria during June. This tour, along with her regular gigs and
major Festivals commitments will keep Harley very busy for the
rest of the year.
“I’m delighted to be representing Tanglewood in Australia and just
love the sound I’m getting whilst working live” said Harley “it’s
great to have such a diverse range of guitars available in this
market and I’m proud to be working with this great brand”.
