Colours in motion
Finally some more light… and therefore also some more colours!
Caroline is right now composing music for children in a project called “Flying tones and thoughts” in Staffanstorp. Vernissage will be in May, more info here! During spring and summer, she will make more concerts with different duo constellations and with her band Colours in Motion. More info in the calender!
When summing up last year, it feels like a rich year with a lot of music, meetings and beautiful moments on and off stage. Among them to mention last summer’s concerts at Goodnight Sun in Malmoe, and the tour with her band last September in connection with the release of her latest album. Caroline was also working at Skillinge Theatre with singer and actress Carina Söderman, a very inspiring collaboration to be continued during 2013.
But most of all, the focus has been on the recordings and the release of her fifth solo album “Melting into happiness”, that saw daylight in the middle of September. The album has been well received by the press and also nominated to the Golden Record in the review OJ. Caroline’s compositions have a multi-faceted and deeper setting thanks to her creative musicians Anders Lorentzi bass, Bo Håkanson drums / percussion and Peter Tegnér guitar, who shape and recreate the music in a fantastic way! Also the guests Vindla String Quartet, harmonica player Filip Jers, Jens and Petter Lindgård (trombone and trumpet) from Timbuktu’s backing band Damn! add extra colour to the production.

Colour, form and improvisation are the cornerstones when Caroline creates her music. Her lyrics and melodies seem carved as one piece. The piano is her oldest friend who has accompanied her performances since the 80’s where ever you can imagine; from festivals around Europe to a tiny cheese shop in north west Scania.
Last album got many good reviews and Caroline also received a scholarship from SKAP (Swedish Composers of Popular Music) on the ground:
“Our ensemble makes music that strolls in a land inhabited by
dreamy Californian singer-songwriters, French entertainers
and wonderful Scanian nymphs with pockets filled with jazz.
With gentle, floating tones and subtle Scandinavian
texts, her music lifts us, carries us away and brings us home again.”
