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. Her 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, 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 the BBC also continued to deepen its roots, as she snapped up slots at Reading and Leeds Festivals via Introducing and gained radio support from DJs at BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra and BBC 6 Music.
Following the success of her battle of the bands win to support Ed Sheeran, Caswell made TV appearances on BBC News at 6 and ITV News Anglia before going on to open for the megastar alongside Lewis Capaldi in front of 40,000 on the closing night of his record-breaking Divide world tour. Now, with 700k+ Spotify streams under her belt and a writing credit on Top 10 German radio hit ‘All I Need’ by Michael Schulte, Caswell has affirmed her place as an alt-pop force to be reckoned with, and one that is most definitely here to stay.
