Having sold out her March dates, including London’s Royal Albert Hall(“a finger-clicker of the highest order” – Evening Standard), Caro is set to dazzle and delight with her sassy blend of big band jazz, swing and pop. In addition to favourites from her debut hit album, the award-winning The Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’, Caro will be performing songs from her sophomore record ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ (released May 6th).
Where Caro’s multi-platinum selling debut album, ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’, took its inspiration from the Hollywood cinema and the glitz and glamour of the jazz scene, ‘The Shocking Miss Emerald’ is inspired by the epicentre of style, romance, excitement and dangerous liaisons – Paris.The first single, the hooky, hip-hop tango ‘Tangled Up’, is stylish, classy and sassy pop – Caro’s trademark – and is a delicious appetiser for the new album.Already a favourite on the airwaves, ‘Tangled Up’ is currently in the top 20 airplay chart with impressive national exposure including on Radio 2 and Smooth. As announced on Jo Whiley’s show, on April 11th at 8pm Caro will be performing her own Radio 2 ‘In Concert’ live from Broadcasting House.
Smouldering, charismatic and with an appealingly aesthetic eye for presentation, Caro Emerald is a truly original pop star. ‘Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor’, so joyful and overflowing with retro-loveliness, sold more than 1.3 million copies across Europe, dominating the charts for 30 weeks in Holland, and in Britain spent nine weeks in the top 10 and was certified platinum. Caro performed on UK TV shows including Jools Holland’s Hootenanny, Strictly Come Dancing and BBC’s Children In Need and her music became a permanent fixture on the airwaves with Radio 2 adding all five singles to the A List and making the record Album Of The Week. Caro’s live performances included an astonishing set in London’s Hyde Park and at the Isle of Wight Festival and her sold out headline UK tour garnered rave reviews.
Caro has also dominated the German music scene, and recently picked up the prestigious Golden Camera Award for ‘Best International Music Artist’, the ‘International Newcomer Award’ at the Echo Awards and was nominated for the Swiss Music Award ‘Best Breaking Act International’. More recently, America has discovered Caro and in January she played sold out shows in Los Angeles and New York to great acclaim. Her live performance is not to be missed – reviewing the show at The Roundhouse, The Times declared the atmosphere to be “part carnival, part high-school prom”, praising her “magnificent vocals” and concluding that “When she finally bounced off stage, punching the air, it felt like a whirlwind had hit North London.”
