Who is Caro Bridges?
Since 2009, Caro has been writing and playing her own songs under the pseudonym ‘Caro Bridges’. The surname ‘Overy’ has Anglo-Saxon roots, and means ‘over the river’. Bridges go over rivers and ‘Overy’ sounds like, well, you’d do the same, and so, here we are, 10 years later, and Caro accidentally has two second names. Both get used.
