Though she now lives in Minneapolis, Caroline Smith first honed her skills as a singer, songwriter and guitar player in her childhood home, Detroit Lakes, where she attended school from fourth grade through her senior year.


"I was born in Ohio, then moved to Detroit Lakes when I was in grade school," Smith says. "My dad continued to live in Ohio, so I would spend half of my time there, and half in Detroit Lakes."
