Carol Grimes

Forthright, sensuous and defiantly independent singer who for over four decades has been one of the great British female vocalists.

There are few musical genres Carol has not inhabited and made her own, and her current quartet shuffles the musical deck in an artful, entertaining and thoroughly engaging way.


The repertoire ranges from the American songbook to British and American Folk and Blues. ‘Carol Grimes should be regarded as a national treasure’ Blues in Britain.

Working with Carol, as an MD, co-composer, and in various lineups, including a duo, a quintet, and an octet.  

Our double album, C.DAWN (Carol, Dorian, Annie, Winston, Neville), is out now.  Compiled from live recordings of the quintet at The Vortex, recorded and mixed by Jono Trott, and mastered by Mark Hewins.  Some great liner notes written by long time friend and collaborator with Carol, Ian Shaw.  Available direct from Carol’s website, here:
