Caroline Duke is an indie singer/songwriter. Her music is associated with several styles but can best be described as electro pop/baroque pop. With a focus on story-telling and with influences in rock, electronica and pop, Duke has taken these influences and woven them into her own music.
Her debut EP "Lovers and Madmen" was released in 2016 and features 5 tracks. The songs are inspired by cinematic themes such as romance and crime and the fine line between love and madness.
Caroline is completely independent but still has managed to gain an engaged fan base. She has about 30k streams on Spotify to this date.
Caroline's debut album "Wild at Heart" was released February 1, 2019. She describes "Wild at Heart" as more of a concept album compared to "Lovers and Madmen" that is inspired by different love stories with a dark twist.
The track has a gothic charm to it and if you can imagine Lana Del Rey crooning epically lush electro torch songs but with a heart full of the broken dreams of Marianne Faithfull, that is only a hint of how good this song is!

...The grandiose nature of her voice and lyrics hang well on the bare, subtle nature of her music. It would be interesting to see how she would fare given a good push and backing of as her talent sits comfortably amongst that of her major label peers. As long as they don't force any big changes they could nurture some huge things for her.
