It must have sunk in somewhere as I know all the words to so many songs I have never bought myself". In 1997, Caroline moved to Pembrokeshire, West Wales which led her to front the band Kamiskaze encompassing styles from African High Life to Soul, Funk and Jazz. The group enjoyed popularity in the late 1990's while Caroline was studying for a degree at Aberystwyth University. "Wales has been a very strong musical influence, I have been blessed to have such inspirational surroundings". After graduating Caroline spent some time giving singing lessons. "I absolutely loved teaching, all of my pupils were taking lessons because they really wanted to express themselves through song and find their voice, it was so rewarding". Caroline continued to sing with Kamiskaze at festivals and venues in South Wales until late in 2005. "We were a great festival band, as a group we had a fantastic energy and very catchy tunes, but we all wanted very different things in life. I left knowing exactly what I wanted". It was at this point that Caroline picked up the guitar and began work on her solo material. "I had so many melodies in my head, I had to have a way to express them which is why I started to play the guitar, it was a tool with which to turn the ideas into songs". It wasn't long before Caroline took to the music circuit in Wales, quickly making a name for herself and gaining interest from Local press.
"Caroline is a very busy and very talented Solo Artist" as stated by The Tenby Observer. Caroline has spent time working with Film Composer/Producer George Kallis on her latest tracks. "George is a very talented composer, we worked very well together and I am sure we will collaborate again in the future". 2008 is a very exciting year for Caroline. Having relocated to London and already busy on the London music scene she is most definitely here to make her mark. Her track 'Evidence' was recently featured as 'Demo of the Week' on BBC Radio Wales and she will be traveling back to Wales in August to play at The Tenby Folk Festival. Caroline will be performing at various dates over the coming months so be sure to catch one of her live shows. "I am really excited, I am a firm believer that if your on the right path, things will fall into place, my music has already taken me on a fantastic journey and I can't wait to see what the future holds, watch this space....".
