Carmen Lundy

“In a world of pretenders, Carmen Lundy is a genuine Jazz Singer” - The Evening Standard

Carmen Lundy began her professional career in Miami, FL as a jazz vocalist and composer when there were very few young, gifted and aspiring jazz vocalists on the horizon. Over four decades later, Ms. Lundy is celebrated throughout the world for her vocal artistry and is highly regarded for her jazz innovation.

Currently on the Afrasia Productions label, Carmen has just completed work on her 15th album Code Noir, due in February 2017. Written entirely by Lundy, the album traverses musical genres and is a song cycle for these turbulent times. Her previous album “Soul To Soul” was released in 2014 to huge critical and popular acclaim. Almost two years in the making, “Soul To Soul” consists of new original songs by Lundy and a few special collaborations, among them Patrice Rushen, Geri Allen, Randy Brecker and Simphiwe Dana, a stunning South African vocalist and composer. “Soul To Soul” is on several major Top Ten Albums lists, including Downbeat and JazzTimes, as are the highly regarded releases “Changes”, “Jazz and the New Songbook-Live at The Madrid”, and “Come Home”. “Good Morning Kiss”, Ms. Lundy’s debut album, held a #3 spot on Billboard’s Jazz Chart for 23 weeks.

Terri Lyne Carrington’s Mosaic Project - Grammy Winner for Best Jazz Vocal Album of 2011 - features the Carmen Lundy composition “Show Me A Sign”, with Ms. Lundy’s original performance from the album “Solamente” reinvented on the arrangement. In April 2016, Carmen Lundy was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement in Jazz Award by Black Women In Jazz and The Arts, based in Atlanta, GA. Among her other awards and recognitions, especially rewarding was Miami-Dade's County Office of the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners proclaiming January 25th “Carmen Lundy Day”, along with handing Ms. Lundy the keys to the City of Miami.

“In a world of pretenders, Carmen Lundy is a genuine Jazz Singer” - The Evening Standard

“The singer has a commanding presence, her words tumbling, soaring and stretching. Carmen Lundy delivers storytelling lyrics with jazz technique and a fusion vibe.” – Mike Hobart, Financial Times

“Carmen Lundy, as beautiful inside as out, has accomplished the near impossible for a jazz singer by maintaining a solid, successful, three-decade career while focusing largely on original, self-penned material.” – Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

4 Star Review “Soul To Soul”, Best Albums of 2014 – Downbeat (Reviewed in January 2015 issue)

“Lundy’s performance was the product of talent that has ripened fully
