Biography

‘if Nick Cave was a lady……and was a fan of jazz music, then he'd be a little bit like Caroline Ty…..exotic rhythms and big vocals, crashing in waves against a pebbly beach of contemporary lyrics and new-wave poetry’. The Mag
 
 
 
London born Caroline Ty is a songwriting fusion of electronic and organic, classically trained and with a bluesy melodrama.  A musical cocktail of fat funky beats, sweeping strings, electronica and expressive, confessional lyrics producing music you can dance to, but with a dark undertone somewhere in the chord changes, as if not all is well at the party.
 

Far away percussion and spacey synths play host to a woozily seductive vocal. As everything goes off at odd angles, there’s something strangely obsessive about Caroline’s declarations of devotion. Like a stalker. But a stalker you’d say hello to’. Overplay.com
 

Sometimes purring gently with chocolaty dark tales of love and sometimes swiping a cheeky paw at celebrity obsession.  An observation of human nature and a commentary on the absurd world we have built ourselves, a world filled with a political zeitgeist of money grabbing, deception and broken promises.  Self-penned, produced and released with a spirit of independence.   Kent based, working with collaborators in Brighton and London.


'Ty operates largely in a category of her own...her voice has a bold, post-punk quality...there is a mischievous melodrama...which cannot fail to captivate'.
David Burke, Music Review Unsigned

'we’ve not quite worked out what Caroline Ty is except for awesome' 
Cofiradio April 2014 

‘…has the low end groove that your bass woofer would crave… 
very experimental and definitely has an original flare to it’.
