"A glistening pop gem with delightful harmonies"
- Jim Gellatly, The Scottish Sun
(reviewing 'Tides' by The Eves)
Caroline has now formed pop duo ‘The Eves’ with Marissa Keltie.
Their new single ‘Smalltown Boy’, a cover of the hit 80’s track by Bronski Beat, was released on 6th December 2019. There are two versions of the single on the release:
1. Radio edit: anthemic pop with lead vocals from Caroline
2. Piano version: a sublime string and piano arrangement with lead vocals from Marissa, evoking a sound similar to Gabrielle Aplin’s cover ‘The Power of Love’.
The BBC has been supportive of this release with airplay across several regional stations:
"This is so good" - DJ Janice Long, BBC Radio Wales
"Just lovely" - Grant Stott, BBC Radio Scotland
2019 has been a hugely progressive year for the duo with high profile performances at:
Country to Country music festival at the SSE Hydro
Headlining the Queen Tuts stage at this year’s TRNSMT
Headline act at King Tuts Summer Nights Festival
Opened for The Shires at Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow
Headline show at The Caves in Edinburgh
TV Appearance on BBC's 'The Edit' entertainment news programme
The duo have been working with producer Mark Morrow for the last 18 months, releasing several singles with many more in progress. They have recently also started working with AIR Management’s Olga Fitzroy – Engineer and Mixer for Coldplay and Dreamworks, and recipient of The Ivors Academy gold badge award.
This year also saw them release summer anthem 'City of Stars' which went down a storm with Justine Greene at BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, BBC Alba, Talk Radio, and a raft of UK radio stations and podcasts.
Marissa is an established session vocalist and voiceover artist. She is also a model for the world-renowned Model Team agency. She was recently the face of the TOSCA promotional campaign for Scottish Opera.
Caroline’s love of pop music combined with Marissa’s passion for harmony creates a song-writing partnership full of anthemic melodies and memorable hooks. The result is a nod towards acts such as Coldplay, The Killers, Lissie, The Pierces and First Aid Kit.
The duo have recently become involved in assisting the dog rescue charity 'Pico's Pack' - helping to raise awareness and funds to care for the street dogs in Belgrade, Serbia.
