Caroline Alves was born in a favela in Rio de Janeiro. In 2008, she came to Switzerland and quickly discovered more passion for music by teaching herself guitar and singing. Influenced by artists like Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu, Caroline developed her own unmistakably musical style.

Her debut album Moonlight is eight impressive and lovingly produced songs, which do not hide themselves from difficult topics. Self-doubt, escape, excesses, failed relationships, and fear of loss – and yet there is always that hopeful, resonant note, and an incredible strength.

In 2021, Caroline Alves won the Swiss Music Award as “Best Talent” and in July 2023, she is the support act for Coldplay at sold-out Letzigrund Stadium.
