Caroline Scruggs

Escape for an hour into a whimsical world of French art song, theremin, storytelling & one woman's creative journey to connect the dots of the world around her. 

Caroline Scruggs - Once upon a time, classically trained vocalist Caroline Scruggs ran away from the rigidity & stifling rules of the classical music world, determined to make exceptional, soul-moving music on her own terms. Since then, she has spent the past half decade cultivating a colorful life as a jazz singer, songwriter, & teacher. She has traveled the country with her music, taking part in creative projects & recording several albums.  

In L’espace Des Etoiles (The Space Between the Stars), Scruggs revisits her classical roots for a single afternoon. Her mission: to meld musical worlds, connect the dots of life’s biggest questions, and find new ways to experience French art song... with the help of the fantastically haunting theremin. 

Scruggs has a BM in Vocal Performance from Christopher Newport University. She sings with jazz bands 504 Supreme, the Truetone Honeys, and the Ghosts of Weimar. She also co-runs the American Train Collective, a songwriting organization that takes place on Amtrak trains. For more info and to get in touch, visit www.carolinescruggs.com
