Caroline Smith earned her place in the Midwest music community with her characteristic alto timbre, quivering with the presence of Billie Holiday, Leslie Feist, and Joanna Newsom. She began with a residency at age eighteen at Minneapolis' 400 Bar, a venue pivotal in shaping the careers of Elliott Smith, Conor Oberst, and Mason Jennings. A year later, Caroline befriended drummer Arlen Peiffer (Cloud Cult), bassist Jesse Schuster, and multi-instrumentalist David Earl, and the boys joined forces as “the Good Night Sleeps.” They released Little Wind Sept 20th to a sold-out crowd at Minneapolis' legendary First Avenue, wowing them with Caroline's surprisingly apt cover of Kanye West's "Power." With the single "Calliope" premiering on PopMatters, Little Wind expands upon their debut LP Backyard Tent Set’s storytelling whimsy, but shifts its foundation from the simplicities of gentle folk instrumentation to greater nuances of musical arrangement and soundscape rooted in modern indie rock.
