Crafting a flavour of neo-soul, downtempo electronica and elaborate pop, London- born Suffolk-based Caswell was armed with her first microphone as a toddler. From the age of ten she siphoned early songwriting inspiration from some of the most distinctive, celebrated female vocalists of the last century; Kate Bush, Nina Simone and Erykah Badu, and taught herself the piano aged fourteen.
After emerging in 2017 she released her debut EP ‘The Shadow Aspect’, named after the Jungian concept of the unconscious dark side of humans’ personality, accumulating 500k+ Spotify streams and features on Spotify playlists Fresh Finds, New Music Friday and Chilled Pop Hits.
She’s since been cited by key online tastemakers as “a viral success” (Clash Magazine) and “London’s newest Superstar” (Wonderland Magazine). Along with deep-rooted support from BBC Introducing, she’s also been played by Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 show and on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Music mixtape.
With 2018 came endorsement from the PRS Foundation’s ‘Women Make Music’ grant, a support slot on Arlissa’s UK tour and a sync of her single ‘Dance Sober’ on ITV’s This Morning with a special mention from presenter Holly Willoughby. She was also praised as a highlight of Latitude Festival 2018 on their website alongside acts like Wolf Alice and alt-J, where her performance was described as; “as precious as the Obelisk Stone.”
This year has seen her continued success with the self-release of her sophomore EP ‘Blindside’ fronted by three sold-out launch shows and performances at Reading and Leeds Festivals. Many have also followed the success of her journey throughout the nation-wide battle of the bands competition, in which she was interviewed live in the BBC:East of England studios and featured on ITV Anglia. She then went on to support Ed Sheeran on the final night of his record-breaking Divide world tour, playing to 40,000 people in Chantry Park.
