Carmen Reece is a London, England-born artist who’s already experienced quite a lot of success on the U.S. music scene. Her single Right Here is climbing right up the Billboard club chart, she’s working with some of the top music producers in the business (including Mark Feist, who’s clients include Beyonce and Celine Dion) and she’s just about finished her debut album.



Oh, and did we mention her killer good looks, amazing chords and natural music ability? Yeah, with all that going for her it seems like Carmen Reece is meant to do big things.

Talented Tunes-tress

Not only can she sing, Carmen Reece is also a gifted songwriter and a classically trained pianist and dancer. Her main goal in writing and performing music is to really connect with her listeners, whether she’s busting out a club-bumber like Right Here or unwrapping a pretty piano ballad like Long Goodbye.


In fact, people who’ve had an early listen of her new album Love In Stereo have compared Carmen to musical divas like Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys and Beyonce. Carmen feels especially flattered by these kinds of comparisons because those women are among her own idols.


Gifted Girl

Carmen’s come a long way in her short life. Born and raised in London she started playing both the piano and the flute in her early childhood, taking beginner lessons at seven. In fact, she was so gifted she snagged a place as a flutist in the National Children’s Orchestra Of Great Britain at just 11 years of age. She wrote her very first song at 12. And five years later, at 16, she was admitted to the famous Brit School, where many other musical stars were educated.


While all that music was happening, Carmen studied dance on the weekends for years, including ballet and tap. Her natural skills as a leader emerged at that time, when she’d get all her friends at school together and choreograph an entire dance number for them.


Stirring Soul-stress

Carmen says she gets inspired by really soulful singers like Toni Braxton, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and Boys II Men. Now her very first album, Love IN Stereo, finds Carmen exploring the kind of love that hits you from all sides. The first single, Right Here, is about a girl who’s determined to keep going forward after she’s rejected by her man. In Long Goodbye Carmen talks about how hard it is when a long relationship ends.
