Vocalist Caitlin Smith is probably more well known by other musicians than audiences. Auckland based, she spent many years coaching some of New Zealand's best-known singers.

When her album Easier Said Than Done still hadn’t been released a year after she recorded it, she changed its title, believing it was cursing the project. It became You Have Reached Your Destination. But that was in 2010, and as it turns out the destination was still some way off. Finally now, after more than a decade the album has a release date. Ahead of its November release, Nick Bollinger reviews it for The Sampler.
