Caroline Pehrson is an unconventional, versatile and playful singer/ musician/ songwriter/ producer from Stockholm, Sweden. She moves in the lands of jazz, Swedish folk, acoustic pop and electronic music and mixes it into her own style. She writes lyrics in Swedish and English.


Recently she released her debut album “Caroline & the Invisible Orchestra” under her own Record Label “Wildling Records”.  The album was created during a recording tour through Europe aka “the Backwards Tour”, where she met up with 15 different musicians at 10 different spots and co-wrote the songs for the album. Some of the musicians she knew since before, some of them she met on the way, and together they became Caroline & the Invisible Orchestra: a network of musicians from different countries and genres throughout Europe. 


Caroline is quite often described as a force of nature and has a warm, powerful stage presence and enchanting voice. She uses her voice as a playground where the goal is not to always sound beautiful, but to explore and express. She uses the ancient singing style Kulning/ herding calls that is traditionally used to herd cows and other animals and is a powerful technique that can be heard from kilometres away in the right conditions. She is also exploring Jojk, the musical expression of the Sami people, the indigenous people of Scandinavia. She approaches jojk with greatest respect for its roots. 


At the moment she has just finished building a Tiny house music studio on wheels and is spending time there editing a documentary and writing a book about the Backwards tour and the project Caroline & the Invisible Orchestra as well as booking gigs for the summer and a Europe tour that is happening in September. 


The purpose of the music she is making is to do what she loves most and through this inspire others to go for what they love. Caroline is a Dzogchen practitioner, a Tibetan Buddhist practice, since 11 years and this inspires her lyrics and all around creativity. 


Outside of music Caroline also conducts ceremonies for weddings and other occasions in her company “Nordic Ceremonies” that can be seen on SVT, Swedish National Television in the program “Bröllopsfotograferna”.
