La Quairmesse, Lugano
With her unmistakable voice and bittersweet songs somewhere between pop, soul and electro, Caroline Alves makes music which goes right under your skin. Whether with her band, as a trio, or alone with her guitar.
Caroline Alves does not shy away from heavy topics on this journey: Self-doubt, escape, excess, failed relationships and fear of loss are recurring chapters in her songs. The Brazilian-born singer deals with a lot of autobiographical material and therefore manages to cast a spell over her listeners with ease. At the same time, however, a hopeful, stirring impression and the artist's strong attitude always come to the fore, which is why Caroline Alves' live shows are sometimes deeply touching, but never depressing.
The “SRF 3 Best Talents 2021" names Erikah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Massive Attack as her idols. Vocally, one discovers similarities here and there, but the music of Caroline Alves goes further: her musical DNA is diverse and each of her songs finely tuned. Now and then still spiced with a little jazz, so that she can play her big trump card, her unique voice, at any time.
