****IRISH TIMES
“Moreau’s voice is a thing of beauty…beguiling”
**** Irish Independent
“Vocal and musical dexterity”
****HOT PRESS
 
Caroline has been wowing Irish audiences with her distinctive brand of comic banter and heart-stopping vocal talent since arriving in Ireland in 2002.  With her heavily accented patter and superb showmanship, her debut show ‘Crime Passionnel’ was delivered with passionate conviction and became a sell-out. Since then, she has performed as a solo artist, in a double-act with acclaimed gypsy violin virtuoso Oleg Ponomarev and with a range of internationally respected musicians in venues all across Ireland and in the UK, France & Spain.
 
 “Moreau’s voice is a thing of beauty…beguiling”
**** IRISH INDEPENDENT
“Uniting heartbreak, obsession and fleeting nonchalance with a deliciously black humour”
**** Irish Times
A unique record that showcases Moreau as a fiercely individual and focused talent. Beguiling in her vocal tone and delivery, the songstress weaves a melodic tapestry around the listener…an exuberant sophomore release”
THE JOURNALIST
“Vocal and musical dexterity”
****Hot Press
Her voice is that perfectly pitched combination of French sultriness and quintessentially European insouciance
**** IRISH TIMES
“What Caroline Moreau does is simultaneously meet our expectations and blow them to smithereens…with a vibrancy that is thrilling… Moreau embodies the voice of each song, with her body and soul she becomes the entire world of the song, and proves herself to be a convincing actress in the process”
**** IRISH INDEPENDENT
“The arrival on Moreau on stage, with her swaggering moves and theatrical delivery, upped the ante”
**** IRISH EXAMINER
“elements of instrumental virtuosity and theatrically-inspired vocalising merged to produce a concert of warmth, passion, humour & musical excellence”
**** CLARE PEOPLE

In 2013, Caroline released her acclaimed second album ‘Amour Toujours etc…’ which drew widespread praise from media and fans alike, with the Irish Independent saying “Moreau’s voice is a thing of beauty…beguiling”.  Caroline’s charismatic, gutsy renditions of traditional French folk songs and sea-shanties combine well with her individual, often humorous delivery of masterpieces of chanson.  Listen to Caroline’s recent album and watch videos at www.carolinemoreau.com.

Radio-Interview EN FRANÇAIS by Eléonore Nicolas

Here I explain how I grew up in France, without TV or Radio, just live music at home, a bit cut off from the world.

How later as a pre-teenager, I discovered Jacques Brel, and how it’s his fault I had my first hangover at the age of 12.

Then, why I came to Ireland 13 years ago and why I stayed.

Why I took a 4-hour long bath before my first gig in Ireland.

What it is for me to be on stage, how I deal with the emotion, the trance, the fear of the audience, etc…

For everybody who wants to improve their French!
