THE HEART OF THIS PRODUCTION (LOVE STORY, BROCKLEY JACK THETARE) ... IS KAY’S POWERFUL PORTRAYAL, WHICH MAKES THE BIGGEST IMPACT OF ALL - TERRIBLY SAD, DISARMINGLY PASSIONATE AND INCREDIBLY MOVING.

Caroline is passionate about creating her own work, and in 2017, at Auburn Jam Music Ltd., she recorded her first original EP, Notes, which, upon release, went straight to #1 in the Irish iTunes Album Charts, and worked its way to #2 in the U.K. Singer/Songwriter Album Charts.

After the success of Notes, Caroline went on to self-produce her debut solo gig, Notes & Other Stuff, in Dublin, Cork, New York City, and London (The Other Palace). In 2019, Caroline released her 2nd original EP, tricks, which again went to #1 in the Irish iTunes Album Charts. She went on to perform more solo gigs in London, at Live at Zedel, and again at The Other Palace.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, Caroline paired up (virtually) with West End Star, David Hunter, and together they wrote, recorded, and produced a mini musical, The Space Between, which is available to watch now on YouTube, and available as an EP on all music platforms to download or stream.
Caroline has also written an original Irish musical, Daisy. Tony Award-winning Musical Director, Sarah Travis is arranging and Musically Directing the project, with Séimí Campbell Directing. After two successful workshops in 2021, Caroline is now working on getting the show staged in the UK, and it is her longer-term goal to get the show on a Dublin stage, where the story itself is set.
