“Carmen Lundy, as beautiful inside as out, has accomplished the near impossible for a jazz singer by maintaining a solid, successful, three-decade career while focusing largely on original, self-penned material.” - JazzTimes

Jazz singer, composer and arranger Carmen Lundy hails from Miami, Florida and received her B.M. degree from the University of Miami. In 1978, Lundy moved to NYC and in 1985, she released her first solo album entitled Good Morning Kiss, which topped the Billboard chart for 23 weeks.

Currently on the Afrasia Productions label, Carmen released her newest album Code Noir in February 2017, which debuted at #9 on the Billboard Jazz Chart and received both critical and popular acclaim. Carmen’s previous releases including Night and Day, Self Portrait, This Is Carmen Lundy, Jazz and the New Songbook: Live at the Madrid, Come Home, Changes, and Soul To Soul among others, have all topped the Best Albums and Top Ten albums lists on Downbeat and JazzWeek.
