Carol Albert

A dynamic rising force in the genre since her song “Mas Que Nada” – from her album Fly Away Butterfly – hit the National Smooth Jazz Airplay charts in 2017, Albert scored her biggest success to date earlier in 2019 with “Femme Flight,” which hit #4 on the Billboard chart. Mixed by Brown and featuring Ragan Whiteside and Magdalena Chovancova, the track also earned Carol a new legion of fans via airplay on SiriusXM’s Watercolors. Earlier Billboard chart hits include “Chasing Waterfalls” (which rose to #15) and “Fly Away Butterfly,” which hit #5 in 2018, and “One Way” in 2017.

“Sun’s Out makes me feel like I’m riding in a convertible with the top down, totally in synch wit the carefree joys of summer,” says Carol, whose multi-faceted career includes eight albums dating back to the 90s, including the new age-oriented releases Morning Music and Night Music. “It’s carefree, fun and bright, and every time I’ve played it live with my band, audiences really connected with it. I remember working on it on a Sunday morning when it was overcast, but I couldn’t think of the right title. Then the sun came out and I went for a walk in the park on what became a gorgeous day. The title came from that exhilarating feeling of experiencing sunlight after a long period of gray skies.”

Carol recently performed at the Smith Center in Las Vegas, City Winery in Atlanta and the Jazz in the Park series in Birmingham. Among other dates she has scheduled is an upcoming appearance on Saturday, July 6 at Brass City Jazz Fest in Waterbury CT with Marion Meadows and Adam Hawley.

The National Women Pen’s League Association awarded the Georgia Composer of the Year to Carol in 2018. Smooth Jazz Network nominated her as the Best New Artist 2017. The track “Transition” from Fly Away Butterfly was nominated in the HMMA (Hollywood Music Media) 2017 Awards in Best Contemporary Instrumental. Carol was also chosen as a Winner in the New Age Music category of the Global Peace Song Awards, 2016. She received an Alkahest Award for her Video “Mas Que Nada” in 2016. Carol also celebrated being on the Grammy Ballot 1st Round in Contemporary Instrumental in 2016 for the 1st time in her career and 2017 as well. Her composition “Lovely Time For A Child’ won a first place award in the Professional Jazz Category from the Atlanta Songwriter’s Association

“Sun’s Out” will be one of the tracks on her currently in progress follow-up album to Fly Away Butterfly.
