Caitlyn Smith kicked off her first-ever headlining Starfire Tour last night at Northampton, Massachusetts’s Iron Horse Music Hall. The twenty-four-date tour will take Smith across the country with stops in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago and Atlanta before wrapping on May 10 at Nashville, Tennessee’s Mercy Lounge.
The tour is in support of Smith’s debut album Starfire, released earlier this year on Monument Records. 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.
“Writing for myself is a raw process and with Starfire, I wanted to be more vulnerable, and tell stories I have lived,” said Smith. “I’m so excited to take this music on the road with my band. We are playing really intimate clubs on this tour and it will be fun to connect with fans and bare our souls together.”
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 and now her first headlining tour.
And Smith shows no signs of slowing down! Following the Starfire Tour, the road warrior will join Grammy® Award winning superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill for the summer leg of their Soul2Soul World Tour. She will serve as opening act from the tour kick-off date – May 31 in Richmond, Virginia until June 23 in Duluth, Georgia.
Smith has also been tapped by Sheryl Crow to open on select tour dates this summer beginning July 15.
