The brother of actress and West End star Sheridan Smith sings for The Voice UK coaches this weekend.

Damian Dalton Smith is hoping to make a name for himself on the BBC One series this weekend.

The 39-year-old is the older brother of BAFTA and Olivier award winning performer Sheridan, who started her career on BBC show Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

At his blind audition this Saturday, Damien sings Jonny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues as he performs for the likes of Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am, Rita Ora and Ricky Wilson.

Currently, Damien works as a self-employed painter and tiler but is also the lead vocalist of a local band called ‘The Torn’, he has been playing with them for a couple of years, and performed at various festivals and their music is available on iTunes.

Nervous performing without a band, Damien can play the guitar, harmonica and foot tambourine.

Music clearly runs in the family because as well as his and his sister's talents, the pair's parents are a Country and Western duo called ‘The Daltons’, they still perform and when Damian and his siblings were youngsters they used to go to all their gigs.

Other acts singing for a spin on Saturday night include Beckenham duo The Rise, spoken word poet Lara Lee and Si Genaro, who appeared on last year's show but is back looking for a turn from the judges.

The Voice UK airs Saturday night on BBC One.
