Caswell: Women Make Music
Suffolk-based Caswell grew up in South London with her then punk-rocker, now vinyl dealer, mother. Armed with her first microphone as a toddler, she subsequently taught herself the piano and began to write songs at just ten years old. Drawing from her influencers such as Kate Bush, Jeff Buckley and Nina Simone, Caswell has honed herself a signature sound; downtempo electronic soul and pop mixed with a tangible jazz influence. She’s received great support from BBC Introducing, as well as key online taste makers who cite her as “a viral success” (Clash Magazine) and “London’s newest Superstar” (Wonderland Magazine).
Live, Caswell is able to captivate audiences and it’s during these moments that she takes the opportunity to really connect with them. Having supported Pixie Geldof and Arlissa around the UK, along with performing in venues from The Apple Store and National Portrait Gallery to XOYO and St Pancras Old Church, Caswell is now set to play a string of UK live festival dates, including a performance on Latitude’s Lake Stage and a support slot with The Libertines.
Having signed out of 2017 with her debut EP The Shadow Aspect and 500k+ Spotify streams under her belt, she’s now releasing singles ahead of her 2nd EP release. It’s creation and promotion will have help in funding from The PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music Award, which will allow her to continue working closely with the team she has put in place.
