Origin: New York City
Genre: Electronic Soul
Label: Si*Sé Records
Carol C is the lead singer and co-founder of the popular NYC-based electro soul band Si*Sé. With a musical style the Los Angeles Times described as “edgier than Sade, but more accessible than Everything But The Girl”, Carol helped Si*Sé gain the attention of David Byrne of Talking Heads back in 2001. He quickly signed them to his Luaka Bop label and took them along on his Look Into The Eyeball world tour.
Already established in NYC’s music scene as a globetrotting drum & bass DJ and party promoter since before the band’s inception, the success of Si*Sé made Carol C’s vocals, songwriting, and impeccable ear for production high in demand. Collaborations with David Byrne, The Jungle Brothers, Thievery Corporation, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Federico Aubele, Madrid De Los Austrias, Ursula 1000, and King Britt soon followed. In addition to David Byrne and Thievery Corporatoion, Carol C has had the honor of opening for and sharing the stage with artists such as Kraftwerk, James Brown, The Roots with Cody Chesnutt, Arcade Fire, Norah Jones, Natacha Atlas, Gotan Project, and Cesaria Evora.
Though her work with Si*Sé continues, Carol’s solo performance will give audiences a chance to experience something different. A collection of brand new originals and reworked favorites from her diverse body of work, many of which have never before been performed live, will be brought to life in Carol C’s own unique vocal style.
