Carina Round has carved a singular path in music with her inimitable voice and stirringly varied compositions. Her uncompromising vision and thrilling versatility has garnered an immensely passionate fan base including a myriad of highly regarded musicians.
Haling from England, Carina had an innate determination and passion for music from an early age, which led her to record and self-release her first two albums, 'First Blood Mystery' and 'The Disconnection'. The former shaped by erratic yet engaging sounds drawing from her love of legends Patti Smith, Tom Waits and Jeff Buckley. The latter took those influences into much more powerful and personal realms.
These two albums led to her being signed by Interscope Records, who re-released 'The Disconnection' album in 2004. This brought Carina US bound to Los Angeles where she recorded her bewitching and seductive album 'Slow Motion Addict' with acclaimed producer Glen Ballard. Accompanying this release in 2007 was a unique 12-part episodic series that cleverly coincided with each track, creating a visual story for the album. In this film Carina starred as the troubled lead character, Maisie Scarlett.
A couple of years later, after parting ways with Interscope, Carina toured with Annie Lennox and self-released her ethereal and nakedly confessional EP 'Things You Should Know', which resulted in considerable success. Her new songs were featured in numerous film and TV shows and multiple radio stations, including KCRW, championed her music. Carina became a touring member of Puscifer, Tool's Maynard James Keenan’s band, worked on their latest album ‘Conditions of My Parole’, and began opening the live shows.
Opportunities began to arise to work with other artists Carina admires, including singing on The Twilight Singers album 'Dynamite Steps', working with the award winning composers John Debney and Glen Ballard on a song composed for the film 'Valentine's Day', writing with Academy Award winner Marco Beltrami, as well as finishing up an album with her Alt-Country side project Early Winters, which was self-released early in 2012. The Early Winters' track 'Count Me In' is featured in the Warner Brothers film 'The Lucky One' and Carina's song 'For Everything A Reason' is in the film 'Dark Hearts'. TV and film placements include American Horror Story, Pretty Little Liars, Dollhouse, as well as many more.
