During the month of May, I am launching a We Make It Campaign as a pre-order platform to help my new project : Moonlight, my debut album. Why launch a crowdfunding during a crisis, you may ask. Well, this period showed that culture is a big part of our everyday lives and a lot of support has been showed to local artists. All the concerts and events have been canceled, and, of course, I am part of it too, which affected my project. It really needs you to be finished et launched. I am very looking forward to meeting you, happy and healthy, and to sharing my music with you again. Feel free to support the project and share around you. Every little support counts and thanks to you, we'll make it !
Caroline Alves is a young 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."
After one year of busking, Caroline Alves starts to play in swiss stages and festivals and to share her dark and particular musical universe. She releases her first EP ‘Unbound’ in September 2017 : four original songs in an electro-indie style produced by the multi-instrumentalist and Grammy-Award winning Jeremy Mage.
In March 2018, Caroline was nominated in the finals of the Demotape Clinic at m4music notorious festival. Her songs “Unbound” and “Freedom” were on rotation on the main Swiss radios such as Couleur3, Option Musique and SRF. This first project opened many doors such as concerts at Festi’Neuch, Gurten Festival, Les Docks, Les Créatives Festival, La Rodia (FR) and many more. She also started collaboration with famous Swiss artists such as Manillio, Sim's et Dr.Mo.
In 2020, Caroline Alves has been chosen for the Opération Iceberg project which is an artistic exchange between clubs and music professionals from France. This project is supported by Eurockéennes and FCMA.
In a dark mood but still very cheerful, Caroline's 'Mamasaya', had a big success in the Swiss radios and the public. "Mamasaya" and her latest release "Like a Stone" are two singles from Caroline Alves' upcoming debut album.
