Carol Albert, a Paulding County native, is a force of majestic musical nature! Her music takes you on a vibrant journey. It speaks to you. Just listen. I heard it for the first time a few days ago and was captivated!
Mostly instrumental, it could be described as a sublime consciousness – being brought into an awareness. Awareness of what, you ask? That’s up to you, the listener, because it’s just that soulfully poetic, without all the words. Her music is contemporary smooth jazz that is ALIVE! A magnificent composer, as well as an accomplished keyboardist and vocalist, her blending melodies take you to whatever dream world you want to be in – from floating on a cloud, or sailing the ocean, to sitting on a sun-drenched beach. Close your eyes and let Carol’s musical genius stimulate your emotions and thoughts, and be taken away. Inhale the spirit of the melodies in “Across the Sky”. One of my favorites , this one features her graceful and stunning voice that adds to the depth of this song. “Chasing Waterfalls” brings to mind the word “tranquility” because this song literally shows you a serene waterfall. You feel it, you see it, you smell it – it’s THAT alive, THAT profound!
Her latest single, “Sun’s Out” will give you a vision of an exotic beach with that perfect coastal breeze. Yes, I’ll have a Pina Colada!
She’s an amazing local talent gone world wide!
