Carol C (of Si*Sé)
Carol C is the lead singer and co-founder of the popular NYC-based electro soul band Si*Sé. With a musical style the Los Angeles Times described as “edgier than Sade, but more accessible than Everything But The Girl”, Carol helped Si*Sé gain the attention of David Byrne of Talking Heads back in 2001. He quickly signed them to his Luaka Bop label and took them along on his Look Into The Eyeball world tour.
Already established in NYC’s music scene as a globetrotting drum & bass DJ and party promoter since before the band’s inception, the success of Si*Sé made Carol C’s vocals, songwriting, and impeccable ear for production high in demand. Collaborations with David Byrne, Thievery Corporation, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Federico Aubele, Madrid De Los Austrias, Ursula 1000, and King Britt soon followed. Her work with Nickodemus of the popular Turntables On The Hudson parties yielded “Cleopatra In New York”, a huge favorite of chill out, lounge, and world music compilations worldwide. In the past year Carol has also become an intricate part of Bjork’s Biophilia project, teaching music theory to elementary school students throughout New York City.
Though her work with Si*Sé continues, Carol’s solo performance will give audiences a chance to experience something different. A collection of brand new originals and reworked favorites from her diverse body of work, many of which have never before been performed live, will be brought to life in Carol C’s own unique vocal style.
“Carol C is like a modern-day Elysian goddess, wooing and wailing over atmospheric electronic vibes.” — CMJ
“Her combination of passion and softness and her tranquil poetry—which flows as if heated by an internal, inquisitive burning—make[s] the heart melt.” — XLR8R
“Singer/DJ Carol C’s voice evokes a sophisticated sensuality.” — Giant Step
Universal Music Classics artists, Twin Danger is the love child of heroin jazz and seductive darkness. Vanessa Bley and Stuart Matthewman. Two hearts beating as one; risk takers with an appetite for the unknown.
The daughter of avant garde jazz piano great Paul Bley, Vanessa is a guitarist, pianist, singer, and songwriter. Her voice is as fragile as it is pure. It is the sunshine after the rain, however she best lives the meaning of Twin Danger. While not crooning along side Matthewman, she plays with her pop rock outfit Beast Patrol.
Stuart plays guitar, for sure, but his tenor sax is what gets under your skin. As a core member of Sade, this makes sense.
Together, Bley and Matthewman make music that is sleek, sexy, and sultry. Jazz- swing meets heartbreak-pop; cinematic blues for the modern romantic.
Twin Danger’s eponymous debut album is the soundtrack of today’s Jack Kerouac- hued speakeasy, transporting listeners to another time and place, while being firmly planted in the here and now. It is music to unwind to, to escape into, and fall in love to. “Pointless Satisfaction” is what you play when Saturday night becomes one with Sunday morning.
The collection of 10 songs commences with “Pointless Satisfaction” and closes with “Take It From My Eyes.” Throughout, Stuart’s cinematic musicianship and Vanessa’s yearning vocals reign supreme. “Coldest Kind of Heart” is the kind of song that becomes a classic. “When It Counts” and “In Many Ways” are thoughtful meditations fusing jazz and blues, while “Save It” and “Past Yet Untold” swing with mellow buoyancy.
The musical union of Vanessa and Stuart is a natural one. “We talked about music,” Stuart recalls. “I said I’d written these chords with a dissonance that I liked, but that I didn’t know what to do with.” A few hours later, Vanessa sent Stuart a finished song. “It was as simple as that,” Stuart says, smiling.
It is this pure, natural approach to music making that makes the music of Twin Danger so very intoxicating. Lost in music, indeed.
