An evening with Caro Emerald – NYC Debut! (SOLD OUT!)
Not that the young singer — already a multi-platinum, chart-topping success throughout Europe —lacks the talent, or the songs, to be successful in her own right. But at one point early in her career, Emerald was one of many talented, unknown performers trying to make her mark.
A call from producers David Schreurs and Jan van Wieringen changed everything. They had a song (written with Canadian songwriter Vince Degiorgio) that needed some vocals, but their first choice for a singer wasn’t available. Could Caro come in?
“I was doing demos at the time, and when I heard about this song, I thought it would be fun to try,” says the singer. “I figured right! I came in and heard this new style of song that I completely fell in love with — it was this crazy mix between pop and jazz, all the ingredients I love in music. And then I guess they liked my voice, because we kept it.”
That track, a retro-tinged party starter called “Back It Up” (complete with DJ scratches), heralded a unique new sound, a blend of pop, mambo and cool jazz. Soon, that demo helped land Emerald a TV performance, just as a YouTube video of the song began to catch, propelling that song to a top 20 hit.
