When songs are stripped back to only piano and voice, new emotions are felt. From moving interpretations of classic rock ballads, to fresh takes on modern chart toppers, RAW embodies the true spirit of performance.
Successful performers in their own rights, Caroline Heyes-Smith and Tom Stevens chose Blackpool’s iconic Winter Gardens to debut RAW in 2016. With powerhouse vocals from Caroline and the watchful musical direction of Tom, the creation of something truly wonderful was born. RAW are different to duos you will have seen before. A carefully selected balance of songs encompassing Musical Theatre, Indie, Soul, Rock, Pop and Jazz are given a fresh lease of life when performed in acoustic form.
Exciting new opportunities are on the horizon for this incredibly talented North-West UK based duo, proving that music really is at it’s best when performed RAW.
