艺人资料
来自欧陆荷兰的爵士乐手Caro Emerald,Caro Emerald原名Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw 出生于1981年,父亲是一位哲学家,母亲是大学秘书,Caro Emerald说自己出生在一个"非常知识分子的家庭",成长在没有流行乐,只有老式经典的房子里。
2005年她毕业于阿姆斯特丹音乐学院, 随后加入了一个44人的Funk乐团。从小的音乐熏陶以及多年的学院学习为她积淀了较高的音乐素养和扎实的专业功底.。2010年她才发行自己的第一张唱片《Deleted Scenes from the Cuttin》,但却反响不俗,单曲《A Night Like This》被酒业龙头Martini选为它的09-10年度广告曲之一。 她的歌曲可以说每首都是精良制作,因为我觉得在爵士界有个很尴尬的情况就是经典的太经典,平凡的太平凡,这种现象导致爵士乐手不断翻唱经典老歌,自己的新品却出的很少(万能的buble也不能免俗)。 而Caro这盘专辑却相当俏皮与诙谐,歌曲的镜头感很强,有百老汇歌舞剧的感觉,但这并不意味着歌曲很复古,相反给人的感觉是非常摩登。如果你想小小的摇摆一下又要带点优雅,那么听听Caro emerald吧。
Caro Emerald的首张唱片,于2010年1月29日在荷兰发行,连续28周榜单头名,打破了此前由Michael Jackson保持的纪录,唱片于8月份在荷兰本土达到三白金销量,逐渐在欧洲升温。她在2009年推出的首支单曲《Back It Up》,由Jan van WieRingen和David Schreurs创作,最初是一个有木琴伴奏的流行电气桑巴,二人邀请Caro Emerald来试唱,发现合作效果不错。于是他们开始了与诸多制作人的合作,共同完成了《Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor》, 这张唱片的音乐灵感来源于40,50年代爵士乐,音乐镜头感强烈,风格时髦从容,经Caro Emerald的演绎后又增添了些女孩式的可爱和诙谐,给爵士乐披裹上了一层糖衣,仿佛是古董珠宝在精心制作后的摩登版本.如果你需要俏皮的旋律,摇曳的氛围,同时又想有些小情调的优雅。
2011年发行现场专辑《Live In Concert》。
2013年发行现场专辑《Live At Le Poisson Rouge, New York》和录音室专辑《The Shocking Miss Emerald》。同年9月发行单曲《The Shocking Miss Emerald (Acoustic Sessions)》。
2015年发行单曲《Quicksand》。
2016年5月,Emerald和女演员Pip Pellens,带着Dutch organisation Plan Nederland公益计划,来到乌干达。7月,她和她的乐队在Colours of Ostrava音乐节上表演。
