Caroll Vanwelden Sings Shakespeare Sonnets

Caroll Vanwelde2

Caroll Vanwelden Sings Shakespeare Sonnets

Caroll Vanwelden is a Belgian Jazz singer/songwriter/pianist who just released her new album “Caroll Vanwelden Sings Shakespeare Sonnets” in which she combines Shakespeare´s sonnets with her own compositions to a ground breaking, fresh and emotional jazzy sound. The amazing intensity of her compositions elevates Shakespeare´s words to a new dimension. Caroll Vanwelden´s voice transmits accuracy and comfort with an astonishing gift to always create the appropriate ambiance.

The artist presents each of the selected sonnets in an exceptional setting: at times forceful, intense, driven, at times, relaxed, mellow, smooth, then again vibrant and vigorous or cheerful and even a little bit shy.

Caroll Vanwelden, a graduate of the famous London Guildhall School of Music and Drama – with illustrious graduates such as Orlando Bloom, Daniel Graig and Dave Holland – is accompanied by a great band with the skill to play music that combines unparalleled transparency with plasticity. With this album she propels the great Shakespeare unexpectedly into the world of big jazz librettists and interprets his lyrics into contemporary music in wonderful arrangements.
