Have you checked out our Audiotree Session yet? The six of us recorded a half hour show with an extremely talented sound engineer and five professional camera people. We’re pretty psyched about how it turned out and think you might be too!

New Video for “Magazine”

Dan Huiting helped me make a music video that I couldn’t be prouder of. In celebration of the perfect body and every shape it comes in, I present to you the music video for “Magazine”.

A huge thank you to all of these wonderful women who helped bring the fight; You are totally inspiring.

First Single from New Record “Half About Being a Woman”

Oh my god oh my god oh my god; I never thought this day would come. But it’s here. It’s official. I am announcing the release of my new record “Half About Being a Woman” and the CD release show with Solid Gold on 9/27 at First Ave.

Listen to the first single NOW!

I have been slaving away over this beast of an album for the last year and I am so proud of what my boys and I have completed. It’s a new style of music with a dash of Beyoncé here, a bit of TLC there, and whole lotta sass. It’s a record about self-acceptance and going back to the roots of ‘feel-good’ music. I have never had so much fun writing, recording, and performing music as I have with these new songs. This record is so important to me and I can’t wait for you to hear it. But you’ll have to wait until October 8th to get it! Unless………

You help us with our Kickstarter! We’re launching a Kickstarter so we can make great videos, press vinyl, stay independent and, most importantly, promote the record fully so we can get the music to even more people around the country. In exchange for your donation, you’ll get “Half About Being a Woman” in it’s entirety weeks before you can get it anywhere else and we also have some pretty crazy incentives set up so go check em out. As a big fat thank you for all of your continued support, we’re premiering our new single, “Magazine”, as a free download only on our Kickstarter page. Yes right now! It’s yours! It’s free! Take it! It’s the least we can do. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

For those of you in Minneapolis: Come to our release show on September 27th at First Avenue! Our friends, Solid Gold, are going to be rocking the evening with us which means, of course, it’s going to be a pretty great night. So get your tickets before they’re gone!

For those of you outside of Minneapolis: We’re coming to you soon! We’ll be hitting the east coast, the midwest, and the northwest this fall and we’ll be announcing dates in the next couple weeks. Hang tight!

Again, thank you all so much for your support over the years. This record is a delightful culmination of your continued encouragement and without you guys, it wouldn’t have been possible.

I love you all with every ounce of my being and every hair on my head (that’s a lot).


P.S. If you want to see some of the gory details about how the album was made, watch my PBS documentary.

My Way Back Home: Caroline Smith

A couple of months ago, Dan Huiting and Dana Johnson shot a documentary about me for PBS. I am completely humbled at how amazing it turned out. The footage they captured was so honest and raw; they did a wonderful job getting an inside view of my family and work. Thank you all for the continued support and thank you especially to my family outside of Minnesota that was not able to be in the footage: my father, Dennis Smith, my brothers, David and Matthew, and my dear Grandparents, Bob and Sue Byron.

Watch and enjoy getting way too much information on yours truly!
