“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.
