Caro Emerald: What A Shocker!

You may or may not have heard of Caro Emerald...

She caused a few waves back in 2009, hitting the top ten as if some kind of freak accident, with Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor. You might know A Night Like This. Anyway, she’s now releasing her second album The Shocking Miss Emerald and that is also set for the glamorous top ten. Truly shocking, especially since she hasn’t rustled many feathers in her journey to success.

Isn’t it weird how these things happen? How can it be that an artist can produce (what will be) two smash albums without causing a media frenzy? In this day and age, it seems ludicrous. Well she is on Radio 2’s A list, which may not sound too exciting. For the dubious among you, she sounds a bit like Paloma Faith in Upside Down. She’s a bit more sophisticated though.

She appeals to a section of the market that still buys CDs, and she doesn't seem to have any trouble burning up that albums chart. If you always wanted to hear what Amy Winehouse would have sounded like in a bubblegum time-warp then The Shocking Miss Emerald is for you.

Listen to the single Tangled Up below – you can also buy the album on iTunes and Amazon
