Кэрол Граймс родилась в Левишаме в 1944 году. В начале жизни, своего музыкального творчества, была уличным музыкантом. В 1964 году она вынесла свой талант за пределаы паба в Hastings Old Town. Кэрол Граймс первую (мировую?) известность получила в 1969 году в составе группы "Delivery", ассоциирующихся в то время с Canterbury Scene. В 1970-х - постоянным испольнтелем Лондонского блюза со своей группой "The London Boogie Band". В это же время Кэрол выпустила свой первый сольный альбом "Warm Blood", первый релиз Virgin's Caroline label (CA2001), при поддержке музыкантов в Лондоне и Нэшвилле. На обложке её квартира в Notting Hill. В следующем году увидел свет её блюзовый альбом, записаный на студии Ardent Studios в Мемфисе и Goodyear Studios в Нэшвилле на обложке которого она представлена со своим сыном Сэмом.
К концу десятилетия, Кэрол Граймс погрузилась в более джазо-вдохновленные стили, в том числе и джазовое пение. В 1984 году под её началом формируется "Eyes Wide Open". Известный до сих пор в основном как сольный артист, она так-же продолжит преподовать по классу вокала.
Альбом "Warm Blood" прелесть! Чем то она мне напоминает Дженис Джоплин. И ещё пишут о ней, что в коллективах (группах) не задерживалась по долгу из за своего скандального характера. Мне так кажется, что это в "крови" у многих талантливых музыкантов, художников, поэтов, людей с творческой изюминкой в душе.

Vocalist Grimes came to prominence in 1969 after joining Delivery. The band began life as a blues group, but gradually adopted a more experimental path. They completed one album before disbanding, following which Grimes embarked on a solo career. She formed Uncle Dog in 1972, but this promising act failed to match early expectations and the singer then resumed her independent path. Grimes’ powerful intonation was shown to great effect on the 1974 solo recording Warm Blood, but despite stellar support from members of Area Code 615 and the Average White Band, the set failed to highlight her talent. A more cohesive follow-up recording was completed in Memphis, with the Brecker Brothers, the Memphis Horns, Duck Dunn and Willie Hall all lending their support.
In the late 70s and early 80s Grimes worked with the short-lived Sweet F.A. and Carol And The Crocodiles, in addition to maintaining a busy schedule as a session vocalist. In 1984 she formed the more stable Eyes Wide Open, recording a number of well-received sets for the Line label. She also branched out into music theatre and teaching, organising private vocal workshops and completing a MA in Voice Movement Therapy. During the late 90s she began working with the remarkable vocal choir the Shout, primarily a vehicle for songwriters Orlando Gough and Richard Chew. An underrated artist, Grimes continues to perform and record and enjoys considerable popularity on the continent.

I was born in London. A long time ago when bombs were falling from the skies: there were no Bananas, and radio was the music and the word. The years passed and then, in 1959 I fell in love with Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald. It was Margie Hendricks roaring out the chorus of "Night Time is the Right Time" on a cafe Juke Box that 'made me wanna holler, made me wanna sing' and the voice of Ella on her hit of those times 'Every time we say goodbye.' These early Musical memories gave me a life long love of the Jazz and Blues voice both in melody and improvisation.
I started singing regularly in the streets of London and along the south coast in the sixties, working with assorted guitar and harmonica players until I formed my first band; THE RACE. This Blues and Folk based outfit worked mainly in the London area with one or two visits to the Continent to play at Blues Festivals. Played mainly clubs and colleges, & supported among other luminaries of the time, Cream, John Mayall's Blues Breakers, The Yardbirds, Graham Bond Organization, Howling Wolf, Buddy Guy and Freddy King. Since those early explorations into the world of singing and earning a crust, I have recorded & or toured in U.K. America, Scandinavia, most of Europe, Poland, Estonia and beyond.
From those early beginnings I then worked with DELIVERY with Steve and Phil Miller, Lol Coxhill and Roy Babbington.
In the nineties I met the composer Orlando Gough and was invited to sing in his opera, Hotel, libretto by Caryl Churchill, followed a piece called 'Shouting Fence' which begat THE SHOUT, a16 and sometimes more strong vocal group formed by Orlando and the singer, composer Richard Chew. I worked with that company for over 10 years alongside gigs with my own Music.
