Caroline Alves is a young 21 years old artist from Rio de Janeiro. It is only when she moved to Switzerland that she finds out her passion for music by teaching herself guitar when she was 14, influenced by soul and folk music and artists such as Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Massive Attack. According to "Negative White" magazine, it is her "impressive, dark and mystical voice that surprises you."
Since some years, Caroline performs her edgy and haunting songs in bars, cafés, festivals and in the streets. Unique and Intimate, her voice seems to peel back the surface of a hidden world. Her first EP, ‘Unbound’, produced by Grammy winning New York multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Mage, has four original songs in a dark electro-indie style. This first project opened many doors such as great stages as La Rodia, Besançon (France), Madame Claude, (Germany), Festi'Neuch, La Coupole, KUFA and many more.
Her songs 'Unbound' and 'Freedom' are on rotation on the main Swiss radios : Couleur 3, SRF 3, Option Musique. She has been nominated for her song 'Unbound' in the m4music festival. Many collaborations followed too as the ones with the rapper Sim's, Manillio and producer Dr.Mo. She currently plays her live perfomances with her musicians : Clément Strahm (keyboard), Aurèle Louis (e-guitar) and Josua Beureux (Drums).
In a dark mood but still very cheerful, Caroline's latest release 'Mamasaya', talks about being disoriented and needing help using images of war against your own self. It is a word that she created for its musical sound.
