Caroline Alves was born in a favela in Rio de Janeiro in the late 1990s. A hard environment, which is a strong experience, and in which one has to grow up fast. In 2008, she came to Switzerland with her mother.


Caroline Alves took up the guitar and learned music on her own.  Influenced by artists like Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Massive Attack, Caroline developed her own bittersweet musical style. For about a year she played in the streets and small bars in different Swiss cities and started to hone her musical skills.


Caroline Alves developed her own signature sound, between pop, trip-hop, soul and jazz. Caroline's style is unique: it surprises you, takes you by storm, makes you dream, makes you cry or makes you dance frantically.


In 2020, she released her debut album "Moonlight": eight impressive and lovingly produced songs that don't shy away from difficult subjects: self-doubt, escape, excess, failed relationships and fear of loss - and yet there is always that resonant, hopeful note and incredible strength. One year later, in 2021, Caroline Alves won the Swiss Music Award as "Best Talent", a very important step in her career that will open more and more doors for the artist who sings herself out of her demons. 


Caroline Alves played on stages such as Montreux Jazz Festival and in July 2023, Caroline Alves will be the support act for Coldplay at Letzigrund Stadium in Zürich for two sold-out shows.


In June 2023, she released her EP "Good Reputation", four songs about image and self acceptance out on Columbia/Sony Music.
