Last year, Monument Records’ powerhouse vocalist Caitlyn Smith released High, which Forbes called “captivating” and the Tennessean stated “showcases an artist finally in control of her life and career.” It was the first half of a record that the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter self-produced. Now Smith has added six new songs to make her full record, High & Low.

For Smith, the making of High & Low represented a metamorphosis. Looking back, the award-winning songwriter, who has graced the pages of both TIME Magazine and The New York Times and been named to Rolling Stone’s 10 country artists to know and Paste ’s 10 country artists to watch, realized she, as many do in the era of social media, had celebrated the “highs” of life publicly – while navigating the “lows” in private. Instead of showing vulnerability, it was easier to pretend everything was fine. But over the course of writing and producing High & Low, Smith learned to peel back the curtain, embracing all aspects of her life, including the “lows” she once held so close to vest.

The additional six new tracks balance 2022’s critically-acclaimed High, celebrated by NPR as “her most fully realized project yet,” with High & Lowcapturing the full picture of who Smith is as an artist and as a creator – where embracing the yin and yang simply makes you more human.
