Carolyn Mitchell is a seasoned professional musician who has been enthralling audiences for many years with her clear, smooth vocal delivery that has been described as a mix between Shirley Horn and Nancy Wilson. Her fan base continues to increase because she is a fabulous live performer. She absolutely owns the state when sharing her exceptional vocal gift with listeners. Ms. Mitchell’s tremendous flexibility in singing style comes from also being a pianist, a formally trained musician with Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in music, plus working many years as a voice teacher. Add to this mix her early experiences as a gospel singer and you have an artist who successfully runs the gamut from jazz to blues and gospel, with a particularly sensitive interpretation of classic jazz.
Her CD ‘Inner Smile’ is a delicious offering to the senses of sumptuous melodies and soulful grooves!
