Suffolk-based singer songwriter Caswell grew up in South London with her then punk rocker, now vinyl dealer, mother. Armed with a microphone as a toddler she subsequently taught herself the piano and began writing songs at 10 years old. Her singular sound – a mix of downtempo electronic soul and pop– has developed into a rich interplay of music and lyrics that is owed in large part to her song writing.
Along with great support from BBC Introducing and the PRS Foundation’s Women Make Music Award, Caswell has also been backed by key online taste makers such as Clash magazine, Wonderland Magazine, The Line of Best Fit and Record of The Day. She’s accumulated 500,000+ Spotify streams and her track ‘Dance Sober’ was synced on ITV with a special mention from presenter Holly Willoughby as “What This Morning is loving at the moment from unsigned artist Caswell”.
Citing influences from Kate Bush and Jeff Buckley to Nina Simone and Erykah Badu, Caswell’s symbolic and literal voice is clear and convincing with an emotional maturity beyond her years. This, paired with an undeniable grit and determination, means that she is an artist for the ages just now finding her time.
