Classically trained pop and jazz singer-songwriter Carole Sylvan has recently released her latest EP “Something Goin’ On” on all musical platforms. Check out the EP below:
Carole is a world-renowned singer, having appeared on Billboard’s Top Ten Charts and having recorded with the likes of Lionel Ritchie and U2, among many others. Her latest EP showcases all the skills she has acquired over the years with an added hint of contemporary musings sprinkled in. The songs are smooth, warm, and upbeat all while fitting in with the soulful and funky world created by James Brown, who she opened for in Yankee Stadium when she was just 16.
The EP opens with “Savin’ up for Your Love,” which gets going with a dance beat and horns that make you want to grab a partner to hit the dance floor and show off your moves. The Uptown Horns are featured and they bring flare and style with a prominent solo and a dazzling display of musicianship. The title track “Something Goin’ On” is slower paced and really shows off Carole’s voice with nice harmonies and deliveries. She can express her words in a way that leaves you feeling better than you did before.
“Show Me” is delicate and cozy, with romantic lyrics that resonate with the dreamy side of the heart. Carole’s vocal arrangements are outstanding and wouldn’t be out of place at a church sermon. Lastly, “You Can Make It If You Try” is a cover of the Sly and the Family Stone classic, and it has the EP returning to the body-moving rhythms that will have you boogying all night long. These songs bundled together in an EP make for an easy and fun listening experience that is sure to lighten up anyone’s day.
Overall, “Something Goin’ On” is another fine example of what Carole Sylvan brings to her genre and she is sure to be an inspiration for many more generations to come. Be sure to follow Carole on Spotify, Soundcloud, Facebook, YouTube and her website. Upcoming live dates are below:
