BEATSCAPE:With a stylistic comfort zone nestled snugly between George Gershwin, Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, Norwegian Singer/ songwriter and composer Caroline Waters is one of those rare artists who have the ability to transform pain and heartache into strength and a love of life that resonates throughout their music. Graced with a clear and tender voice, the multi- instrumentalist is part sultry jazz diva, part international minstrel and part idealistic folkster.     

GOOD TIMES SANTA CRUZ: “Caroline Waters has the kind of deeply resounding voice that lets out a smooth and sultry blend of jazz and R&B. Seasoned with sensual lyric and forays into chamber pop, the fiery singer and multi-instrumentalist leaves little room to question why she was Norway’s youngest musical ambassador before even reaching the age of 10.”                                                                                                                       

SURVIVORSHIP MAGAZINE: “The beauty of her voice, the rich ensemble arrangements, and her lyricism weave a dream-catcher hammock which rocks and cradles me between childhood and the compassionate nurture of my adult recovery.”

FOLKET: “My God what a powerful voice!”

VG: “Sexy, tough and sensual. An incredibly beautiful voice with a remarkably large register…Hats off!”

AFRICAN AMERICAN IMAGE PRESS: “The beauty of texture and phrase displayed by Caroline is a vocal phenomenon. In the array of musical talents, like a new word, Caroline Waters is like a fresh seed planted on the ground of the discussion.”

NOHO LA MEGAZINE: “Her voice has a greater passion, quality and strength than the majority of famed divas (such as Mariah Carey and Celine Dion), as she draws the power of Sheena Easton and the ethereal beauty of Tori Amos and Enya…Waters vivid Nordic fantasy-life is portrayed through an intense beat, expressive use of falsetto a la Kate Bush, and again, fantastic lyrics.”

LA SPLASH MAGAZINE: “With professionally produced original grooves and street-wise beats laying the foundation for her socially conscious and deeply introspective lyrical style, it seems Caroline has found a way to connect with anyone and everyone…Moving from hip-hop to latin jazz and even to a violin solo inn the midst of a bouncy R&B number, Caroline Waters is a talented multi-faceted artist not to be overlooked.”

KVINNER OG KLÆR: “We’re in a popular nightclub in Oslo. An amazon in a mini-skirt and flaming red hair enters the stage, hits a chord on her guitar, and sings: I don’t wanna be your sugar baby, I don’t wanna be your slave in paradise. The tones rise and fall. Her voice comes from deep within her core and soul, first with intense joy, next in dark melancholia. The audience applauds and scream: MORE! Caroline tears off her jacket, lifts her arms over her head, kicks the beat with the most solid boots ever seen at Smuget and roars: I wanna live, I wanna live right, I wanna love, I wanna love right, I wanna do what is right for me.”
