Carol Grimes

Carol Grimes was born Carol Ann Grimes (7 April 1944, Lewisham), London) and is a smooth jazz, world music, and singer. Grimes was a member and founder of Delivery, a group associated with the Canterbury Scene. She first became famous in 1969. She was a regular performer on the London blues circuit in the 1970s with her band, The London Boogie Band. She also released Warm Blood, her first solo album. It was the first single to be released on Virgin’s Caroline (CA2001). The album was supported by session musicians from Nashville and London. The cover was shot in her Notting Hill apartment. The release of the follow-up blues album was made at Ardent Studios, Memphis, and Goodyear Studios, Nashville. She was pictured on the cover with her son Sam. At the end of the decade, Grimes was able to move into a jazz-inspired sound, with a lot more scat singing. Eyes Wide Open was formed in 1984. She is best known as a solo artist, but she does theatre work and teaches voice. Text contributed by users is available under Creative Commons By–SA License. It may also be available under GNU FDL.
