Guest Musician: Caitlin Smith
I’m a ‘story singer’ and a ‘song poet’. I’ve five albums
including three with guitar-based jass trio The Fondue Set.
I’ve vocal coached and taught songwriting for over 18 years
and still love it.
Mike Alexander said I have “a voice that imagination
created”. Fiona Talron said was “mesmerizing” “an angel on
E” at Hotel DeBrett last night.
