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.  Her fourth full-length,Tigermending comes from a painting by Amy Cutler where three women sit in a field dutifully stitching the bellies of a heap of helpless tigers.  Carina recounts, “The first time I saw the painting I stared at it for a long time not understanding why. The absurd image absorbed me. There was an innocent simplicity to it. The gentle putting back together of something most ferocious and wild mysteriously damaged to the point of submission.”

Tigermending will be released on 10th September through Carina’s own label,  Dehisce.  Produced with Grammy nominated writer Dan Burns, Carina collaborated with several notable artists including the legendary Dave Stewart, Brian Eno, and Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan.

 

Hailing from England, (but currently residing in LA) 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.

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. Her new songs were featured in films & TV shows and a number of radio stations, including KCRW, championed her music. Carina became a touring member of Puscifer, Tool’s Maynard James Keenan’s band and worked on their latest album Conditions of My Parole

Carina Round will be touring the UK in September. Dates to be announced shortly.
