2010 has been a year to remember for Caro Emerald. Her lyrical tales of romance and deception over a blend of samba, jazz, bossa nova, mambo and crackling vinyl have seduced fans all over Europe.
Just in 2007 Caro performed 'Back it up' on a local TV station in Amsterdam and placed a low-budget video on YouTube. It caught on right away, just as her second single 'A Night Like This'.
2010 was the year of her much anticipated debut album 'Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor', a mix of 1950's inspired ballroom jazz, cinematic tangoes, groovin' jazz tracks, infectious mambo's and banging beats. It entered at 1 in the album charts, reached platinum status within 6 weeks and has now sold over 200,000 copies in the Netherlands. The album has spent 29 weeks at number 1, breaking a Dutch record set by Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'.
As Caro has taken her music out of the Netherlands, audiences all over the continent have been falling for her sepia-tinged melodic take on life. She has been topping airplay charts in Italy, Germany, Norway, Greece, Poland and the UK. Grandmono Records has signed license deals in almost every country in Europe and even South Africa. To top it all off Caro received prestigious Dutch music accolade the Edison Award for Best Female and an MTV EMA nomination for Best European Act.
