Caroline Smith Plays the Early Show Tomorrow at Mercury Lounge

October 14th, 2016

Singer-songwriter Caroline Smith makes the kind of soulful music that’s filled with soaring melodies, unabashedly honest lyrics and powerful, smoky vocals—earning comparisons to Aretha Franklin, Carole King and TLC in the process. Half About Being a Woman (stream it below), a breakup album for adults, came out three years ago. Bearded Gentle Music raved, “This is a bold album, full of opinions and blunt realizations about what happens when a relationship comes to an end. It is also a soft album: warm, flowing and somewhat depressing. This album is gold.” And with new music on the horizon, Smith (above, doing “Baby Goodbye” for WPR FM) has hit the road. See her tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. L.A. producer-DJ Callie opens the show.
