Parallel with her solo career, in recent years Caroline has worked with a huge variety of artists; as a classically trained cellist her first professional employment was with Siouxsie and The Banshees and since then she has contributed to albums by Radiohead (The Bends), Peter Gabriel, Muse,and The Waterboys to name just a few. In the late 90s Caroline toured with the Indigo Girls and Loreena McKennitt and has also played live with (Ryuichi) Sakamoto, The Cranberries and Nigel Kennedy amongst others, while in complete contrast contributed writing and vocals to an array of dance anthems by the likes of Massive Attack, Jam Nation, Art Of Trance, BT and Chicane.
Good company, I think. And good music; if you're not a member of eMusic, you can also download some tracks and samples from her web site, if you wanted to know, or hear, more.
Oh, and Shasta MacNasty has a bit on that thing that happened during the Super Bowl halftime show that I'm ignoring, as does wait, should I be linking this site? Well, that entry, this site.
