Album Notes
Step back into the past. Imagine a softly lit room, fancifully dressed tables, gentleman in suits and ladies donning their best cocktail dress. As the singer takes the stage, the night falls sweetly quiet. Melodies swirl to the beat of sensuous rhythms and time stands still. Bewitched by the songstress, you helplessly surrender to the mysteries of the night.

Welcome to the music of Carolyn Martin.

Carolyn enjoyed the simplicities of small-town life as a child, spending most of her days on horseback. Music was a part of daily living; she treasured the old movies and the Frank Sinatra records her parents played for her. “I was inspired as a little girl watching “White Christmas” with Rosemary Clooney. I loved the idea of standing in front of a band, singing beautiful melodies and wonderful lyrics,” said Carolyn. A dreadfully shy teen, Carolyn wanted to sing but chose guitar lessons instead. After a few rounds of accompanying a violinist friend at local restaurant gigs, a fan prodded Carolyn into singing. “When I received my first applause, I was hooked! I started singing every chance I got,” said Carolyn.

Eventually, the lure of the road would sweep the young vocalist away. Carolyn never realized at the time that music would take her places that others only dreamt about. Guest appearances for a president and American troops overseas would be just a few highlights of her career. An in-demand session singer and member of the Grammy nominated Time Jumpers, Carolyn has found herself front and center at Nashville's Opry House, on NPR, and many other exciting opportunities.

Time does fly when you’re having fun. Interestingly enough, Carolyn never took the time to record until The Very Thought of You in 2006. A collection of personal favorites and unique discoveries, this debut release includes gems like “The Very Thought of You” and “Too Marvelous for Words.” Carefully prepared arrangements bring forth the rich vocals that Carolyn Martin fans have known about for years.

Carolyn Martin is a singer of a new generation that not only appreciates the music of the past; she has the skills to propel it to the future.

Love what you do.
My wife bought me the two CD's, and I love them beyond words. I just put those CD's in and let the miles go by. One day we hope to make it to the Station Inn, and catch you in person. Russ Hicks said it wasn't too hard to get good seats. I hope he's right. Again We love your voice and song slection. Judy & Tony Smith

This is really a fantastic album. Carolyn performs all of the songs beautifully and the musicians are great as well. This is real music at it's best.

I brought her "SWING" CD, after hearing it, I had to have more so I got "THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU" CD and love it even more. She has a great voice, just think how it would sound with a big band in the background.
I found Carolyn on Public TV on a program with The Time Jumpers back in March 15, 2008. She is great with them also. Keep up the great work and good luck.I gave her 5 stars only because there is not anthing higher, this is a 10 star preformance.

Fred Walker/The Big Fred Walker Show

Hello Carolyn,
I just gave you 5 stars and you should have 10 anyway
that's how good you new CD SWING is I can not pick just
one song when their is not a bad one in the line up.
You should go a long way with this one. Big Fred, MI.
