Welcome to the Crowdfunder campaign for my third album Everything Gives to Something Else, a new collection of tracks with the theme of interconnection, compassion and living more from the heart and body.
I'm a Manchester based artist, engineer and facilitator in sound who goes by the name of Caro C. I have produced 2 albums as caro snatch, had my fair share of magic gigs across Europe and composed music for film and theatre.
Making music with technology and found sounds, I work intuitively with my voice, my piano and talented guest musicians. I like taking the time to capture sensitive recordings and sculpt a sensual sound world for you to step into.
The new tracks are already written. Here are a few comments from an intimate preview event where I first performed them live earlier this year:
“Enticing. It envelopes me. I got lost in and with it.”
“Moving. Deep. Transcendental. Real. Funny. Sensuous. In the now.”
“I am left feeling calm, centred and hopeful about the human condition – a gift, thank you.”
Given the theme of Everything Gives to Something Else, it would be lovely to go into the production process with the collective connection of your support. You can pre-order the album as a digital download or CD, buy a discounted ticket to the live album launch and be a patron of my art with a thank you credit on the album artwork.
Your support will enable me to:
- Record the new tracks in a lovely church space, on a grand piano, with help from fellow recording engineer Janet Wolstenholme and featuring guest violinist Kate Moran (cost: £300)
- Take the tracks for a final polish at Lisa Stansfield's gorgeous Gracieland Studios who did a fine job on my last album (cost: £350)
- Master the tracks at Blacklisted Mastering who have also done sensitive masters for me in the past (cost: £175)
- Produce 100 limited edition home-made CDs with handmade sleeve notes plus postage costs (cost: £600)
Everything Gives to Something Else will be released around the Spring Equinox 2016 with a live album launch event in Manchester in May 2016.

Take a listen to the first track on the album Heartmind preylude and listen out for the found sounds of an ice cube clinking in a glass and a hot pan sizzling under cold water. This track sets the tone for the rest of the heartful journey that will be Everything Gives to Something Else with luscious visuals created by Andrea Pazos.
I hope you will jump on my band's wagon!
With an abundance of love and gratitude,
