Carina Round is 22 years old and lives in England. She is perhaps Birmingham's best rising star in the music scene, having recently supported John Martyn, Coldplay, Ryan Adams and Ben and Jason. Her songs are very much influenced by Patti Smith, but more comparisons have been made between her and P.J. Harvey. Her amazingly powerful voice and the sexual edge to her songs make her a must-see performer live. Her debut album 'The First Blood Mystery' was released in May, 2001.
