ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Carmen Smith

Carmen Smith can be ever so delicate or ever so feisty. She can sound heavenly and angelic or as husky and sassy as she feels, but you’re never bored listening to her voice floating around you.


A Sydney based artist who’s talent has been turning many a head supporting internationals Roachford , Rahsaan Patterson and local acts Diesel in which she supported and added her vocal to his new DVD (Coat hanger Antennae- Live @ The Vanguard). Other supports include Wendy Matthews, Jon Stevens, and Casey Donovan. She has also toured the country with Guy Sebastian (2004 Beautiful Life tour), The Young Divas (2006- currently) Deni Hines and featured on hip hop artist FiggKidd’s debut release “This Is FiggKidd”.You may know Carmen’s voice from the catchy Channel 10 promotion “What I like about you” that was played year round in 2006.


Yet, it is in the song-writing realm that Carmen has gained much respect with many of her songs landing on “idol” albums such as Casey Donovan (2004 Australian Idol winner), Kate DeArougo (2005 Australian Idol Winner), Rosita Vai (2005 New Zealand Idol winner) and Ricki Lee (top 12 finalist)


Growing publishing credits aside, it’s Carmen’s own signature sound that’s destined to hit home. Her soulful yet unique voice and lyrics that everyone can relate to, make Carmen a must see. She has just finished her self-titled, independent debut release, in which she co produced and wrote. “My music, voice and songs reflect the person I am, easy going, happy and honest”

Album of the Month
At times Carmen's music has the sort of soulful feel and sound you used to get from the Philadelphia International and Brunswick labels. However she is also able deliver a modern and harder edged soul sound that has an all together funkier, grittier feel. Indeed with this album Carmen may well have come up with a new type of sound, one that we've decided to christen 'Antipodean Soul'.

The opening track "With You" is reminiscent of the sort of polished soul that the Chi-lites and Delfonics where so adept at delivering, and this track certainly stands up favourably in that exalted company. On the other hand with "That Girl" and "I Used To" she shows the grittier side of the soul coin with more of a funk and urban influenced, almost Beyonce, like sound. With "Feeling Alright" we are treated to a wonderful combination of soul blended with hints of doo-wop that is perfectly set off by an understated sax accompaniment; whereas "We Can Work It Out" sees Carmen deliver a Stax style torch song in the manner of Shirley Brown or Jean Knight - one that is not to be missed.

"Hurt So Bad" has a bit of a Bobby McFerrin feel about it, however we are prepared to overlook that as it is a fine song with a particularly catchy tune; and "Letting You Go" returns to that Brunswick influenced soul sound that sadly seems to have all but disappeared. One of the best is saved for last with "Do It Right Now", as she gives us as good a combination of old style and modern funk that you're likely to hear this year.

She has certainly succeeded in proving that there is more to the land down under than Kylie, Fosters and Crocodile Dundee. And just as with their menagerie of exotic wildlife, she manages to gives us something that is just little different to the norm.

I love this CD, Carmen's style is so refreshing. What I like about this music is there is so much happening, both in the vocals and the backing. I hear something new every time I listen to it.
