Near Water Concert Series Presents: Caroline Smith with guests Adelyn Rose & Colee James
Fueled by Monser Energy Drink and Kruz @ 106.7
Merging ’90s R&B and neo-soul with her indie-rock roots, Caroline Smith‘s new album, Half About Being a Woman, is a record about self-acceptance and growing into yourself; it’s about going back to the roots of ‘feel-good’ music. “I wanted to find my way back to the reason why I started playing music in the first place,” says Smith. “Over the last year I began to embrace that being a strong, confident, opinionated woman is something to be proud of, not subdued. I have to embrace where my roots are and stay true to who I am: an unabashed fan of 90′s R&B, pop, and neo-soul.”
With soaring vocals and catchy melodies at the heart of her songs, Caroline is settling into a sound that feels more like home on the new album. “I’ve finally created something that is a nod to some of my favorite records while using my own voice to illustrate my personal transition into woman hood; That time in a woman’s life when her ‘fat butt’ becomes her ‘phat ass’. I wanted to make music to celebrate that and to encourage other women to do the same.”
