T'pau burst onto the music scene in 1987 with the hit "Heart & Soul" reaching No. 4 in both the UK & US charts.
"Heart & Soul" led to a meteoric rise in T'pau's fortunes both at home & in the USA, where the track stayed on the US billboard chart for 6 months. After a UK arena tour supporting Bryan Adams, the band immediately toured UK City Halls as headliners to tie in with the next single, the classic ballad "China In Your Hand." Nobody could have predicted the enormous impact of "China" which stayed at No. 1 for 5 weeks - the longest serving No. 1 of the year! simultaneously Bridge Of Spies occupied the number 1 album slot for 2 weeks.
To date, "China In Your Hand" has appeared on more than 150 compilations, and has become one of the most played songs of the 1980's. After further hits such as "Valentine," "I Will Be With You," and "Sex Talk," the "Bridge Of Spies" album was certified quadruple platinum in the UK, selling 1.2 million copies. ‘Rage’ the 2nd album also went platinum.
The final album, "Heart & Soul: The Very Best Of T'pau," was released in 1993.
By 1997, Carol had taken the decision to build a new T'pau around her, and get back on the road after assembling a massive amount of new material. Encouraged by the response, Carol embarked upon recording ‘Red’ the first new T'pau album for 6 years.
After embarking on the hugely successful #Tpau25live anniversary tour in 2013 Carol and Ronnie went back into the studio and wrote and recorded Pleasure And Pain released in 2015 to 5 star reviews. Currently on the sell out Songs And Stories acoustic tour, Carol and the band are promoting her autobiography 'Heart and Soul'.
