'En Route' is the stunning debut album of young soulful French chanteuse Caroline Lacaze. It tells her story as a musical roadtrip.
The 'swinging mademoiselle' released a string of successful 45s on renowned labels such as Mocambo, Tramp Records and Legère Recordings, appeared on the Mighty Mocambos' album "The Future is Here" and became a regular feature of the group on the subsequent tour throughout Europe - including support shows for Lee Fields (in Amsterdam's Paradiso and London's Islington Assembly Hall) and a radio live performance at the BBC6 Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show.
Caroline Lacaze now steps further into the spotlight with her first full album "En Route" - in a style that is all her own. The mixture on "En Route" is eclectic: nonchalant 60s beat, mysterious psych-pop, raucous funk and longing French chanson, all held together by the energetic raw soul sound and the skillful 'mise-en-scene' by Mocambo Productions, who provide a musical background with expertise - as they have proven before on their collaborations with the Mighty Mocambos, Gizelle Smith, Kenny Dope, Afrika Bambaataa, The Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band and others.
