After spending the greater part of 2015 in her adopted town of L.A., Caroline Smith is coming back home, with her full ensemble in tow, to tour her native mid-west. After writing for her new record over the fall, and for other artists such as Rihanna and Lizzo, Smith is back on the road to promote the release of her new single, “Giving Myself Away,” and to revisit the smoky arrangements and unabashedly honest lyricism of her 2013 release, “Half About Being a Woman.” Smith’s live show adds depth to her unique take on R & B pop and alternative neo-soul; Her full band of experienced players adds lush layers to her singles such as the feminist anthem, “Magazine”, and the heart-wrenching soul of “Child of Moving On”. As a performer, Caroline Smith leads with a compelling performance that will mesmerize anybody who watches and, with the addition of her choreographed back-up singers, she will deliver her most fully-realized and exciting set yet on her upcoming tour.
