Caron Wheeler: Got a Life, Thanks

Barbara Ellen, New Musical Express, 2 February 1991

CARON WHEELER'S acrimonious departure from the Soul II Soul posse is the stuff of music biz legend. But rather than 'chat fart' from the sidelines about the sorry lot of a black session singer in Major's Britain and Jazzie's shadow, she's ploughed headlong into a solo career. BARBARA ELLEN meets the woman with Demis Roussos' dress sense (ouch!) and God's own lungs.
