Ordinarily this site is dedicated to bringing you fresh new artists who are yet to become household names but do have the potential to do just that. In the case of Carmel, who had hits in the 1980s before taking a break from the industry until now, we’re making an exception for two reasons.
First, this is good quality music, and it’s been so long since those 80s tracks that a reintroduction to a new, internet savvy audience is needed.
Second, the style of these tracks – based on bluesy chords and hippie, airy folk – is a departure from her previous work.
The most important thing is that this is good, independent music offering an alternative to the mainstream, and there’s not enough people out there with name value who are offering that these days. For that, Carmel should be applauded and supported.
