Caroline van der Leeuw (born 26 April 1981 in Amsterdam), better known by her stagename Caro Emerald, is a Dutch jazz singer. She debuted on 6 July 2009 with her single „Back It Up„. In week 32, 3FM Radio declared „Back It Up“ a 3FM Megahit.
Caro Emerald is the new kid on the block, but boy does she sound like she’s been around! A voice so seductive and sultry it’s hard to believe she just recorded her debut album, a mix of 1950’s inspired ballroom jazz, cinematic tangoes, groovin‘ jazz tracks, infectious mambo’s and banging beats. The album „Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor“ was released on January 29, 2010.
