Caro Emerald – Wake Up Romeo

Cinematic, vintage inspired songs with modern production – the music of Caro Emerald and creatives, songwriters and producers David Schreurs, Vincent Degiorgio and Jan van Wieringen has captured hearts and minds across the contingent since 2009. Originally setup as a studio project, Caro Emerald became an overnight sensation when they self-released their debut album “Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor” in 2010 on Grandmono Records. Featuring 12 original songs, the album blends vintage latin and jazz, 40’-50’s soundtracks and bigbands with hiphop beats and samples, without ever sounding retro. The catchy songs and inventive production paired with Caro’s sultry voice, Vince’s intricate lyrics and the evocative artwork gained massive momentum, and the album became the longest charting album in Dutch history – including 30 weeks at #1. Follow up “The Shocking Miss Emerald” (2013), partly recorded at Abbey Road 2 with strings and horns arranged by Jules Buckley, entered at #1 in both the UK and NL. The album featured successful songs like “Tangled Up” (co-written by Guy Chambers), “Liquid Lunch” and the Bond-ish “I Belong To You”. Combined, album sales reached well over 2 million to date.
