Acclaimed singer/songwriter and Monument Recording Artist Caitlyn Smith has released B-Sides to her critically acclaimed debut album Starfire released earlier this year. Available today, The Starfire B-Sides features two unreleased tracks “Breakfast in the Afternoon” (written by Smith and Bob DiPiero) and “If I Didn’t Love You” (written by Smith, Troy Verges and Gordie Sampson).
“I love these two songs so much,” said Smith. “When they didn’t make it on the album, I wanted to find a place for them to shine on their own, so we saved them for this release. ‘If I Didn’t Love You’ is one of my favorite songs to perform live and ‘Breakfast in the Afternoon’ is one of my favorite songwriting memories to date, written on an Amtrak train. I’m so glad fans will be able to hear them now.” 
Listen to The Starfire B-Sides here: 
Smith recently released “Contact High,” her second single from Starfire which is at Triple A Radio now.
In May she wrapped her first-ever headlining Starfire Tour. The twenty-four-date tour took Smith across the country with stops in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago and Atlanta before wrapping to a sold-out Nashville crowd. Following the headlining tour Smith hit the road with Grammy® Award winning superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill on their Soul2Soul Tour and Sheryl Crow opening on select dates. This fall she will joinAmos Lee as opening act beginning Sept. 14. 
“Smith’s performance revealed commanding dynamics, from the slow and spacious ‘Before You Called Me Baby’ to the giddier rumble of ‘Contact High,’” said the Lexington Herald Leader of Smith’s Soul2Soul appearance. “Topping that was a potent vocal wail that sounded like a rootsier version of what Hill unleashed later in the show. An impressive outing.”
The Cannon Falls, Minnesota-native cut her teeth in the clubs of Minnesota’s Twin Cities where she discovered her love for songwriting and performing. That passion led her to Music City and years spent writing for other artists including James Bay, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, John Legend, and Meghan Trainor, before finding her own voice and expressing what she wanted to say as an artist in her own right. Rolling Stone (print) opined, “Her voice is as big and versatile as any of the Nashville stars she’s worked with.”
Because they come from such an honest place, Smith’s songs thrive whether accompanied by a full band or heard as an intimate, solo performance. Hailed as one of the ‘top female vocalists’ on Billboard’s SXSW 2017 Music Discovery, her performance style has landed her on stages at Lollapalooza, Americana, Austin City Limits Music Festival, the iconic Apollo Theatre, her first headlining tour and now opening for superstars like Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Sheryl Crow.

Starfire has received wide critical acclaim with New York Times' Jon Pareles tapping the album as the first full body of work for the coveted Critic's Pick, describing her voice as “lean and taut, with an insistent quaver and a hint of a sob, with glimmers of both the girl-next-door naturalism of Sheryl Crow and the wayward attack of Sia." 
Rolling Stone said the “powerhouse vocalist” has “emerged as next-level star on new album ‘Starfire,’” the “equal-parts gritty and gorgeous debut LP” that “veers between classic country (‘Tacoma’), pop (‘Don't Give Up on My Love’), blues (‘Contact High’) and gut-wrenching soul (‘East Side Restaurant’).” 
Paste also recognized the singer’s talent saying Starfire is a “stinging, superb debut album” where “‘Don’t Give Up On My Love’ swells with the dramatics of an Adele hit, and her ode to her old hometown of ‘St. Paul’ could slot right between Sam Smith and Khalid on a Top 40 playlist.”
Starfire is available everywhere now: Fans can also purchase the deluxe edition vinyl ofStarfire, online at Smith’s webstore or at Amazon.
