«Each song is a little snapshot of something I picked up along the way,» says Caitlyn Smith. With her new album, Starfire, Smith has created a true portrait of an artist as a young woman, full of insightful observations, personal revelation, and commitment to craft. 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 from James Bay to Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton to John Legend and Meghan Trainor (for whom she co-wrote the multi-platinum duet «Like I'm Gonna Lose You»). Since she returned to the stage on her own, tastemakers immediately began taking notice:
Rolling Stone has called Caitlyn's voice «soaring and expressive» and Elle magazine praised her «powerful, affecting songs,» and she was named one the «top female vocalists» on Billboard's SXSW 2017 Music Discovery.
«I was wandering around Nashville, writing for other people, but I hadn't figured out what I wanted to say as an artist,» says Smith of her new focus for Starfire. «I started writing songs that only I could sing—I would go in with the intention of writing for myself, after years of not doing that. This record is me opening my heart and telling my story.»
