Originally from South London and now based in Woodbridge and London, Caswell grew up with her then punk rocker, now vinyl dealer, mother in Tulse Hill. She began writing songs at ten years old and subsequently taught herself the piano, and by fourteen she had secured a place at the prestigious BRIT School.
Her singular sound- a mix of downtempo electronic soul and pop with a tangible jazz influence- fuses past and present, and has developed into a rich interplay of music and lyrics owed in large part to her songwriting. Having self-released her debut EP The Shadow Aspect in late 2017, her music has now accumulated over half a million Spotify streams and has received support from BBC Introducing Suffolk, Amazing Radio and Reprezent radio. Her latest song Lie to Me is out now!
“The pop newcomer has swiftly become a viral success”- Clash Magazine
“What she creates is beautiful and moving, and if you aren’t already rooting for Caswell for 2017, you should be.” – Wonderland Magazine
