Looking for a more traditional place to raise her son, Carolyn moved back to the Philadelphia area in the 90s where she continued to sing locally with a very active church music program. Concert work and recording followed and she did solo work and background vocals on two contemporary Christian worship CDs. Carolyn happened to walk in to a venue that was hosting a jazz jam session and her sit-in performance started a string of contacts with local musicians. Soon she was the featured vocalist with several Big Bands, gave a sold-out performance at Odette’s in New Hope, and ended up back in her old stomping ground of New York at the Rainbow Room fronting an 18-piece swing band.
Carolyn now has her own jazz trio and regularly plays out in the Philadelphia area. A student of language, Carolyn sings in five languages. Her appreciation and application of many styles of music influence Carolyn’s interpretations of the Great American songbook and jazz standard repertoire. Come a Little Closer is her first solo CD.
