CCCATCH
Born on July 31st, 1964, in Oss (Holland), the young Caroline "Caro" Catherina Muller alias "C.C.Catch" wanted for so long to become a music star. She joined Optimal, a feminine quartet, from Osnabrueck, they sign a studio contract and, therefore, 2 singles will be released ("Er war magnetisch" and "The Goodbye") in Germany in early 80'sd.
During one of the group's shows in Hamburg, Optimal was noticed by the German composer and also a member of the famous pop-duo Modern Talking: Mr. Dieter Bohlen. What was so attractive to him was the brilliant vocals of the member of Optimal, Caroline Catherina Muller. In the same year (1985), on the same evening, Dieter offered her a true contract and he became her own producer.
The explanation of her artistic name is the following: the two C's reveal her first and middle name (Caroline Catherina), and "catch" is " just fantasy but it sounds nice". It was Caro's idea
Therefore, in the summer of 1985, exactly in caro's birthday, "I can lose my heart tonight" is released as C.C.Catch's first single. Neither in the cover nor at the backcover of the single appeared her name, and nobody knew who actually was the girl behind that great voice... Nevertheless, the single "I can lose my heart tonight" became a big hit in Europe.
All in all, Dieter and Caro worked together until the end of 1989. Twelve singles and five albums were recorded from then .
In 1989, C.C.Catch wants to release her own songs but Dieter Bohlen woudn't let her do that. That's why she moves to London In search of new sounds.
When C.C.Catch was in London recording "Big time": the first song without Dieter's production, by that time, she was afraid of being unable to use her artistic name, C.C.Catch, as it was registered by Dieter thouigh it was Caro's idea. Finally, after big fights between Caro and Dieter in courts, an economical agreement will allow C.C.Catch to be able to use her name again.
Once with the end of Dieter Bohlen's sound, a new life will start in a New York's Eve, in Spain, when she will be introduced to SIMON NAPIER BELL (ex-manager of WHAM!, GEORGE MICHAEL). While moving for a while in London, Caroline Muller visits Simon and asks him if he might be interested in her ?! And...he is. Thereafter, Simon & Caro begin to prepare a new album with other producers such as: AVENUE, ANDY TAYLOR (ex-Duran Duran), JO DWORNIAK, DAVE CLAYTON, who worked with Trannsvision Vamp, etc...C.C.Catch leaves Hansa & BMG while becoming a member of Polygram (Metronome).
The first single comes out as "Big time": "I feel very happy. It is the first time I've been in the production of an album from the beginning till the end. Nobody has taken any decision without asking an opinion and I've co-written 7 of the songs. I think it is going to be a good and big time for me". So, the first single without any of Mr.Bohlen's contributions, "Big time", is released at the end of 1989, and in the same time BMG "happens" to release her single "Baby I need your love" and the compilation CLASSICS including only Dieter Bohlen's old hits. This will be one of the causes why "Big time" will not be a success at that time. Also, when the second single, "Midnight Hour" is released, two other singles by BMG would appear "Good Guys Only Win In Movies" and "The Decade Remixes" (only in Spain). This is obvious; a boycott from Dieter Bohlen and BMG.
"Hear What I Say" was released at the end of 1989 and remains as the last and best original album by C.C.Catch. After this great album, she didn't release anything else.She focused on spirital growth and meditation and startes to write poetry and paiting. She just lived life.
In 1998, she married a teacher of meditation and yoga. Also she came back to music scene after nine years. She was offered by BMG to do the promotion of a new compilation, Best Of '98, and she said yes. Two singles were made: C.C.Catch Megamix '98 and I Can Lose My Heart Tonight '99. In both featuring Krayzee.

Now she is back in Germany, leaves with their young russian boyfriend in Cologne and try her re - comeback with the new single " Shake your Head 2003", a cover version from Ozzi Ozzbourn from 1983.
