Adventurous and eclectic fusion of jazz standards and originals from Aotearoa's finest vocal artist and well-respected musicians.

"If you want the real deal on a sunny Sunday, head along to The Drake. Caitlin Smith is at the microphone there, backed by Kevin Field on Fender Rhodes and Oli Holland on upright bass. Smith has a multi-octave voice, endlessly clever vocal control, and a penchant for the lusciously seductive. She does classics, but is also keen on the contemporary: Joan as Policewomen numbers, for example, and some originals too.

The Drake serves two-for-one meals on Sundays, it has some interesting selections on the winelist, and the seating out front is an ever popular suntrap". - METRO 2008.

“Sophisticated and jazzy, yet with elements of pop and even a little drum and bass - it’s great when an artist’s music doesn’t lend itself to easy description. Caitlin Smith’s music is reminiscent at times of the slightly off-beat songwriting Carole King, at other times of the late night lounge singing of Norah Jones.

Some songs are closer to Joni Mitchell’s folk-jazz period, while at other times we can hear the influence of Sting’s mature, composed pop (though it’s nothing like what counts as pop on Top 40 radio). Caitlin has the same effortless, yet powerful voice that Eva Cassidy had, and what’s better still is that Caitlin writes her own material. The trio she’s assembled does a great job of providing a solid, melodic foundation for her songs, while not overpowering her vocals with their obvious talent" - cdbaby.com

The Caitlin Smith Group's debut album 'Aurere' was cdbaby.com's Editor's pick in 2008.
