My way to live 3:390:00 / 3:39
Engaging and transformative on stage, the blues-rock guitar player and soulful singer-songwriter Caroline Allatt has sparked up energy throughout BC and the Yukon in the past year with her fearless performances. Her approach comes from a place of spontaneity and self-love. Allatt’s hook-laden sound has been linked to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Janis Joplin, and Bonnie Raitt.
“An old soul in a young body and a crazy mind! The honest and powerful voice who scats on folk and jigs on blues.”
— Nicole Lefebvre
At a young age, Caroline Allatt played the guitar and sang in her family band getting exposed to all the classics - The Beatles to Billy Joel, Led Zeppelin to Tracy Chapman. Trained in jazz composition, arrangement, guitar, and voice, from CEGEP Saint-Laurent in Montreal, she had proven to be an incredibly diverse player and songwriter.
By 21, Allatt released her first EP produced by the Production Guitare Verte in Quebec with manager Nicole Lefebvre and producer Eric Bernard. Lured by Vancouver’s siren song, she made the trip out West in 2012, performing for an entire year as a professional busker on Granville Island. Winning over the East Van scene she released her second self-titled EP from producers Jesse Waldman and Marc L’Espérance.
Over the years, she's been part of other projects such as guitarist for Hong Kong’s beloved Taichi Band, and bassist for Nanci Blu, recorded at the world-famous Armoury Studio. Her latest includes lead guitarist for the funk-rock band, Ripple Illusion, where she’s toured all over Western Canada including BC, The Yukon, and Alberta, performing in many festivals such as Artswells, Tiny Lights, Woodstove and Serenity.
Fluent in both French and English, Allatt’s cultural origins come forth in her personality. Fearless and playful, she shares her love of life through her honest performances. This kind of passionate delivery speaks to her audiences in an engaging and captivating way.
