From her luminous voice and the first chords that ring out tunefully from her acoustic guitar, Caroline Sky’s audiences are left with little doubt - they are in the presence of a truly extraordinary singer-songwriter, one who combines top-shelf vocal talents, uncommon songwriting insight, and soulful instrumental delivery. As one of the youngest members to have performed in the prestigious San Francisco Girls Chorus, Caroline’s talents as a vocal artist were honed at an early age. This world-class training gave her opportunities to develop her vocals, perform regularly, and tour extensively, ultimately making appearances with the San Francisco Opera.
After many years with the Chorus, Caroline found herself drawn to more contemporary and narrative music forms: R&B, rock, and pop. Picking up guitar and piano, she quickly advanced to writing and performing original material. She soon appeared in some of the Bay Area’s most prominent music venues and festivals, sharing the stage with legendary artists as Tedeschi Trucks Band (opening for them at the 2015 Mount Tam Sound Summit), Joan Baez (in duet), Carly Simon, Ben Taylor, Arnold McCuller (duet with this featured vocalist from the James Taylor Band), and Vicki Randle (The Tonight Show, in a featured duet) amongst many other notable names.
She has studied songwriting at New York University's summer music program, and has received songwriting mentorship from greats such as Bob Weir (Grateful Dead) and Bonnie Hayes (Bonnie Raitt, Berklee College of Music).
Most publicly known for her appearance as a contestant on Season 12 of NBC's top-rated music reality show, The Voice, Caroline received chair turns from both Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. She competed as a member of Team Gwen, and was later "stolen" back by Blake Shelton. Finally, having competed in three episodes, Caroline was the last contestant to be "knocked out" prior to the airing of live performances in her season. She remains grateful for the experience, and has stayed in close contact with a number of her fellow Season 12 contestants.
Caroline has always believed that music has the power to bridge differences, to bring people together to achieve a higher purpose. Putting that belief into action, she often lends her talents to benefit concerts and musical philanthropies. Among her favorite musical beneficiaries have been Camp Jabberwocky, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Bread and Roses, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Cedars of Marin, and Island Elderly Housing. Notably, Caroline and her Voice "Battle Round" partner Stephanie Rice teamed up in the Spring of 2018 to perform in a concert benefitting victims of the Sonoma and Napa wine country wildfires.
Caroline is currently living between California and New York, performing both independently and with her band virtually. She is currently writing and recording music to be released in 2021.
