With a voice and live performance which triumphed over 600+ acts in a nationwide competition to support Ed Sheeran; Caswell and her band are without doubt one of the most exciting and dynamic live acts of the moment. Hailing from Suffolk, the journey began as a preteen writing songs on a second-hand piano after watching a musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Ten years on, Caswell debuted her first works which quickly accumulated 400k+ Spotify streams and features on playlists Fresh Finds, New Music Friday and Chilled Pop Hits. Single Dance Sober caught the eye of ITV producers and was then used on This Morning for a fashion feature, with presenter Holly Willoughby describing it as “What we’re loving at the moment”. Soon after that Caswell opened for Pixie Geldof and Arlissa and was selected by BBC Introducing to play Latitude 2018, after which she was listed as a festival highlight on the official website alongside acts Wolf Alice and alt-J.
The rise continued in 2019 with PRS Foundation endorsement by way of the Women Make Music award, which saw the release of her sophomore EP Blindside fronted by three sold-out launch shows. Backing from BBC Introducing continued to deepen it’s roots as she snapped up slots at Reading and Leeds Festivals, and EP tracks Stay The Night, Control and Hurt Me Bad caught the ears of legends Huw Stephens and Tom Robinson who showed support via BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music.
Following the success of her battle of the bands win to support Ed Sheeran, summer saw Caswell make TV appearances on BBC News at 6 with a live interview at the East of England studios, as well as a feature on ITV News Anglia. Her and the band then went on to open for the megastar alongside Lewis Capaldi and The Darkness in front of 40,000 on the closing night of the record-breaking Divide world tour.
