Caroline Baran is an amazingly talented 15 year old singer who made her debut on old-timey covers series Postmodern Jukebox in 2016 singing Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time”. She was discovered during a Postmodern Jukebox competition, and boy what a discovery. Like a young Alicia Keys, Baran possesses an understanding of music that is far beyond her years. Coupled with a voice that is both technically and musically superb, Baran is a rare young talent, as evidenced in this gorgeous rendition of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”.

Baran floats over Metallica’s well known melody like a sultry songstress 20 years her senior, while her very accomplished band grooves with every note. This is definitely a more soulful, introspective take on the song, as opposed to Metallica’s rage infused version. Instrumentation is a far cry from the original, as one would expect in a jazz cover. On paper, this recipe sounds pretty far fetched (scatting in a Metallica song?), but as you will hear, it comes together splendidly due to the bands’ musical chops and the depth of the lyrics.
