Biography

Carita has sometimes been referred to as "Stinga" (female version of "Sting"). Carita is a singer, composer/writer and piano player. She was born in Uppsala, Sweden and has been traveling/living in various countries for the last 18 years. The album JAZZUALITY was released by the Indie Label "El Pescador de Estrellas" and published by EMI Spain. The music is recorded "live" in studio (except for 2 songs) to capture the ambience and freshness transmitted on stage. The whole repertoire is well marked by Carita's personality in her voice, compositions and arrangements. "Jazzuality" has received great critics & has been air played in many radio stations. Carita has participated in various TV-shows (national and local) with different formations of the band (sometime even as a duo or trio) and has performed at various JAZZ FESTIVALS and important Jazz clubs.

Carita graduated from BERKLEE COLLEGE OF MUSIC "Boston, USA" in 1996. Then she moved to Tenerife where she had her own band, the "Carita Boronska Band", with whom she performed at two of the Heineken Jazz Festivals. A natural composer, she realized that after Berklee she needed some time to readjust and get back into the flow of composing again. She left Tenerife for Madrid where she lived for the next ten years, combining her singing with COMPOSING FOR FILM and TV and teaching at the Creative Music School of Madrid (La escuela de musica creativa).

She made her album "Jazzuality" at the prestigious Musigrama studios in Madrid where the producer Paco Ortega fell in love with her project and decided to collaborate with her. The album consists of Carita's own compositions, as well as a version of "Come Together" by The Beatles amongst other covers of jazz standards.

Lyrics

IN THE AIR

Written By: Carita Boronska

I see the sunbeams squeezing through them leaves above my head and I,
feel I'm shining just the same.
In every window flowers longing to come out to meet the sun,
and wait for rain, isn't that a shame

AM I THE ONLY ONE TO KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS
THERE MUST BE OTHERS JOINING ME
IT'S IN THE AIR

I get all thrilled just watching lovers making promises and I,
want to make one too
I smile inside just knowing why there is a reason to my life,
just like they do, seems so very true

AM I THE ONLY ONE TO KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS
THERE MUST BE OTHERS JOINING ME
IT'S IN THE AIR

I want the whole world to know
how I cherish this sight
And I mean, take your children for a walk,
give their dreams a life
These things don't come with the tide

It's strange how close we can come to one another, without any words
and yet we dare, 'cause it's in the air

AM I THE ONLY ONE TO KNOW ABOUT THESE THINGS
THERE MUST BE OTHERS JOINING ME
IT'S IN THE AIR

CRAZY WORLD

Written By: Carita Boronska

Why do people say what they don't mean
in this crazy world
and then regret, but yet forget
it may seem like a crazy world
Why do we still trust the ones who fools us again and again?
still we keep hanging on to what is wrong
in this crazy world
We should be able to judge from mistakes
put our trust in our hearts, not our heads
Today is just a day among all others
in this crazy world
but it's just as important as tomorrow
in this lazy world
We should kick out evil but it circels round and around..still
we keep hanging on to what is wrong
in this crazy world

IN YOUR EYES

Written By: Carita Boronska

IN YOUR EYES
I SEE SUNSHINE IN THE NIGHT
I SEE FUTURE IN THE PAST
JUST ONE LOOK IN YOUR EYES

CAN’T DENY
SOMETHING MOVES ME DEEP INSIDE
LIKE A BREEZE CARESSING MY HEART
THAT I JUST CAN’T DENY

IT FEELS FAMILIAR YET IT’S NEW
SO HOW CAN IT BE
JUST ANOTHER ROMANCE
WHEN WE’RE TOGETHER MY WHOLE WORLD MAKES SENSE
IN YOUR EYES
I SEE MY UNBORN CHILD

SO I CRY
TEARS THAT FALL UPON MY SMILE
SO INNOCENT AND PURE
THOSE ARE THE TEARS I CRY

IT FEELS FAMILIAR YET IT’S NEW
SO HOW CAN IT BE
JUST ANOTHER ROMANCE
WHEN WE’RE TOGETHER MY WHOLE WORLD MAKES SENSE
IN YOUR EYES
I SEE MY UNBORN CHILD

IN YOUR EYES
I SEE LOVE GREATER THAN TIME
I FEEL ETERNAL AND DIVINE
WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES

I SURRENDER

Written By: Carita Boronska

I WONDER IF I’M JUST AFRAID
BEEING BROUGHT INTO THE SHADE
SO UNEXPECTED I FALL
WHEN YOU PUSH ME AGAINST THE WALL

IF I HAD WORDS TO EXPLAIN
THE TOUCH OF YOUR SKIN IN MY VAINS
I’D DIE WITH A PEN IN MY HAND
TRYING TO MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL

I SURRENDER EVERYTIME YOU TALK TO ME
I LOVE THE WAY YOU ARE BUT HATE YOU FOR IT

I AM HERE WAITING FOR YOU
YOU ARE SOMEWHERE OUT THERE KNOWING
MY MIND IS ALWAYS ABOUT YOU
SO TRAPPED IN A FEELING SO HELP ME, PLEASE HELP ME

YOU COME AND YOU GO AS YOU PLEASE
I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE SO EASY
GOD IS THIS SOMEKIND OF TEST?
SOMETHING THAT MOVES INSIDE OF ME

I WONDER IF YOU’RE JUST AFRAID
YOU STARTED TO FEEL SO YOU STAY AWAY
SO UNEXPECTED YOU FALL
WHEN I PUSH YOU AGAINST THE WALL

I SURRENDER EVERYTIME YOU TALK TO ME
I LOVE THE WAY YOU ARE BUT HATE YOU FOR IT

I AM HERE WAITING FOR YOU…

I WANT.. TO CRY… OUT…

I AM HERE WAITING FOR YOU…

The Answer

Written By: Carita Boronska

Never realized that I needed time
to think things over.
Such an endless fight, with nowhere in sight
to bring me closer
to the day that break everything take
or always took for granted
so just let me be what I always was
before my life just stranded

So many doubts, just wandering around
just making illusions
I knew all along there’s always a song
to bring me solutions
Bring me the answer
Just bring me the answer

Should I cry or laugh, make a photograph
of every single moment
That my life just turned everything around
into a bleeding torment

So many doubts, just wandering around
just making illusions
I knew all along there’s always a song
to bring me solutions
Bring me the answer
Just bring me the answer

Someday I’ll find the answer to my dreams
Someday I’ll find
Someday I’ll find the answer to my dreams
Someday I’ll find
