Caro Emerald

Real Name:
Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw
Profile:
Dutch pop/jazz singer, born 26 April 1981 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

In 2007, Caro Emerald was called upon to cut a demo for producers Jan van Wieringen, David Schreurs and Canadian songwriter Vincent Degiorgio. Caro seized the opportunity and recorded "Back It Up". When she performed the song on a local Dutch TV station a year later, the song exploded onto the scene. With only one track on the repertoire, David, Vincent, Jan and Caro started working on a full album, inspired by films and music from the 1940s and 1950s. Schreurs and Van Wieringen set up Grandmono Records to release and manage their music, also incorporating Degiorgio's A&R background.

Second single "A Night Like This" reached #1 on the Dutch single charts in January 2010. Debut album Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor was released in the same week, entered the album charts at #1, and reached Platinum status within 6 weeks. Overall, the album spent 30 weeks at #1, breaking a record set by Michael Jackson's Thriller, and sold 260,000 copies within the year in Holland alone. The album has been released in over 40 countries and is IFPI-certified Platinum with sales over 1.3 million in Europe.

Follow-up album The Shocking Miss Emerald was released in May 2013. The lively European arts, entertainment and fashion scene of the 1920s-1960s set the stage for this album, which like Caro's debut album entered the Dutch album charts at #1.

Both Caro's albums were released to popular and critical acclaim and broke various sales records in the Netherlands. Caro and her production team received various awards, including an MTV EMA Award (Best Dutch/Belgian Act), EBBA Award, Goldene Kamera and Echo Award.
