Singer Carroll Thompson is a key pioneer & representative of Black British music. Quite rightly crowned as the Queen of Lovers Rock she has a perfect, rich, and soulful voice plus superlative song-writing skills.

A series of accolades, albums, and awards followed as well as recording deals with majors like EMI and Virgin. She has worked with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Natalie Cole, Chaka Khan, and many more.
