ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BET "J" is AIRING MICHELLE CARR IN CONCERT "Live", WITH AN INTERVIEW from THE BLUE NOTE, NEW YORK!!! THIS IS AVAILABLE ON DIRECT TV AS WELL AS CABLE.
ALSO, LOOK FOR MY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO "TRACKS OF MY TEARS" ON BET"J" "SOUL SESSIONS".

With a confidence that never becomes sass, a strength that never becomes haughtiness, Michelle Carr is a gracious singer whose rapport with the audience gives an air of familiarity and relaxation to her performances. She’s clear as a bell, hitting every note with a voice that sparkles. Her warmth and pleasure in being able to share her songs emanates from her radiant smile-- singing is what she was meant to do.

And Michelle always knew that. Even at the age of four, she had an idea her life would be one of singing and performance—she grew up harmonizing with her family around the fireplace in Alta Loma, California. She would sing with her mother, grandmother and sister while her uncles played the compositions they’d written on bass and guitar. She sang in her high school’s choir and musical productions and performed every season with the community theater. She loved every kind of music, looking to artists as diverse as Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Leontyne Price for inspiration.

She went on to graduate from California State Polytechnic University. Then in 1992 she moved to New York City to attend The Juilliard School where she studied classical voice, graduating in 1994. She also studied jazz piano with Johnny “Hammond” Smith and was a member of his vocal jazz ensemble. She has worked with Nancy Wilson and Roy Hargrove and was a backup vocalist for the band Hiroshima. Currently she lends her smooth jazz vocals to bassist Christian McBride’s funk band Escape Route.

Michelle’s wide range of vocal experience is complemented by her extensive background in theater. Her performances have included Hal Prince’s Tony Award-winning musical Showboat, Lincoln Center’s Workshop of Carmen Jones and Goodspeed Opera House’s revival of The Man of La Mancha.

Years of classical training and a keen understanding of musical composition, arranging and vocal technique have provided her with the foundation to create a style that embodies classical, jazz, funk, R&B and folk, which she has done with passion, emotion and technical precision. She delves into all aspects of life when she writes her songs, finding inspiration in joys and heartaches alike. The results are songs full of honest emotion—everything that comes out of her mouth first comes out of her soul.

When legendary song stylist Nancy Wilson was asked to describe Michelle, she said, “Clarity! Her voice is pure and clear, expressing a wide vocal range and a multitude of talent. Those are the things I have always admired about her voice.”

Ms. Wilson, I have to agree.

--Elizabeth

I bought the cd at tower records after hearing michelle at the Blue Note. Why aren't there more fantastic artists like this out on more major labels? I'm looking foward to seeing her on the Blue Note on March 19th.

I was listening to Cd101.9 in New York City and they played this beautifully haunting version of Good Morning Heart Ache. I literally rushed to Tower Records the next day and purchased Michelle's CD. All I can say is I love this girl.
