We’ve been trying to book her for ages but finally she’s here! Caroline Esmeralda van der Leeuw, or Caro Emerald to you and me, is a Dutch pop and jazz singer whose debut album Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor set a new all-time Dutch chart record. Spending 30 weeks at number one on the country’s albums chart, it beat the previous record set by Michael Jackson’s Thriller by one week. It was removed after 102 weeks due to rules stipulating albums cannot spend more than two years in the charts. In total it has sold over a million copies.

In April 2013, her second studio album The Shocking Miss Emerald went to No 1 in the UK Album Chart, becoming her first UK No 1 album. Her first single Back It Up was pitched to various publishers and labels but while reaction was positive they didn’t believe it had strong enough chart potential. However, once posted on YouTube it quickly spread around the world and radio stations picked it up, the rest was history.

Her infectious mix of jazz, pop and electro-swing has now wowed across the world. You will have heard Caro many times as the cinematic and upbeat sound of Deleted Scenes has resulted in frequent use of the songs in TV series and advertising campaigns around the world including; Martini and Sky TV ads, The Vampire Diaries, The Playboy Club and The Secret Circle.
