Singing is not only about the voice, the lyrics, and the melody. There is much more behind the job of an artist, and those singers who know how to go beyond these essential aspects of singing, are those that can turn a good song into a masterpiece. Exciting and intense, real artists’ interpretational levels go beyond the speakers and strike the listeners straight to the heart, evoking memories and feelings. Caroline Mercedes has that little, yet powerful spark that makes her and her music stand out! Today, at Planet Singer, we have the great pleasure of listening to two of her singles, “Back” and “Crushed,” two tracks that signs a crucial new chapter in her career!
Caroline Mercedes is a talented singer and songwriter from New Jersey. Gifted with a natural musical instinct, Caroline shaped her sound, including in her tracks influences from different genres.
