Music Profile: Caro Emerald

Caro Emerald, Music,

Trust me when I say that this woman is one of the greatest things to come out of the Netherlands in recent years. You might know Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw better by her stage name: Caro Emerald.

Described as a jazz and pop singer, Caro Emerald offers a delectable blend of tongue-in-cheek and haunting lyrics in her unique tone. The classic sound (think 1940s/burlesque in theme) is catchy beyond belief, and in April 2013, her latest album The Shocking Miss Emerald reached No1 in the UK album charts. A multi-award-winning singer, her music is both easy-listening and party music. I can’t make the choice between albums, and so have to listen to them over and over again, all in a row! Make up your mind yourself, with this video of one of my favourite songs from her latest album: I Belong to You
