”Once heard, Caro Emerald is impossible to ignore. A smart, infectious singer of immense talent, her debut album Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor is one of the year’s very best.”
Inspired by her love of ‘40s and ‘50s film, and boasting production values that would make Mark Ronson envious, it’s a rich and deeply appealing listen that defies easy pigeon-holing. But that’s just the way Caro likes it! And yet despite having gone triple platinum in her native Holland, Caro’s success came almost by accident.
Her breakthrough single Back It Up was all about word-of-mouth, after she gave an impromptu performance of the track on a local TV station in Holland, which sent her star into orbit.
A cheaply shot video followed, which became a YouTube phenomenon, and an album deal was quickly reached. Suddenly, Caro had gone from virtual unknown to one of the hottest new talents in Holland.
The world now beckons… and it’s hard to see how her infectious song-writing can fail.
