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 before releasing anything. Inspired by films and music from the 1940s and 1950s, they wrote and produced "Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor", an accessible collection of 12 original songs. Adding Degiorgio's A&R background to the mix, Schreurs and Van Wieringen set up Grandmono Records to release and manage their music.

Second single "A Night Like This" reached #1 in the Dutch single charts in January 2010. That same week, Grandmono Records released the highly anticipated "Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor". It entered at #1 in the album charts 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 selling 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. Caro and her production team received numerous national and international awards, including an MTV EMA Award (Best Dutch/Belgian Act), EBBA Award, Goldene Kamera and Echo Award.

The lively European arts, entertainment and fashion scene of the 1920s-1960s sets the stage for the second album, "The Shocking Miss Emerald". Caro, David, Vincent and Jan found ideas in pictures, stories and people living in the world's centre of haute couture, Paris. They aimed for an edgy sound, vivid, dark, romantic and intense, yet still glamorous. The album was released on 3 May 2013.
