With her new album, Starfire, Caitlyn Smith has created a true portrait of an artist as a young woman, full of insightful observations, personal revelation, and commitment to craft. "Each song is a little snapshot of something I picked up along the way," says Smith. Powerful and nuanced, the record marks the arrival of a true musical force.
Though she began her career as a performer, in recent years Smith has become one of Nashville's most celebrated songwriters, with her compositions recorded by artists such as James Bay, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, John Legend, and Meghan Trainor (with whom she cowrote the multiplatinum duet "Like I'm Gonna Lose You"). Upon her return to the stage, tastemakers immediately began taking notice: Rolling Stone has called Smith's voice "soaring and expressive," and Elle magazine praised her "powerful, affecting songs." Smith was named one of the "top female vocalists" on Billboard's SXSW 2017 Music Discovery.
