This sultry singer-songwriter has graced stages in her hometown of Philadelphia and across  the  globe,  winning  fans  and  admirers  alike  with  her  extraordinary  voice  and presence. Highly regarded in the music community for her vocal dexterity, mesmerizing performances and genuinely warm personality, Carol is a unique entertainer whose evolution is ongoing.

Born  and  raised  in  South  Philadelphia,  music  has  been  a  part  of  her  life  since  she  was  a teenager. It was in her early adulthood that the industry took notice of her vocal talent when she got her start touring as a vocalist with Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith aka Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince.

Since  then,  Carol  has  blessed  the  tracks  of  many  distinguished  artists.  She  is  featured  on records by Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, Norman Brown, Kindred The Family Soul and a host of others.  Her  exceptional  and  distinct  vocal  delivery  can  be  heard  on  Musiq  Soulchild’s “Soulstar,” the title track on his multi-platinum album.

After  partnering  with  Axis  Music  Group,  a  former  Philadelphia-based  production  company, Carol  started  an  independent  label  “CRIDDICKNOTES”  and  creatively  spearheaded  the creation  and  release  of  her  debut  CD,  “Moments  Like  This”.  What  some  consider  a  huge undertaking for an artist came natural to Carol who co-produced and co-wrote the majority of the songs on the project. Carol has collaborated with GRAMMY Award winning producers and songwriters including James Poyser (Erykah Badu, The Roots), Anthony Bell (Jill Scott, Jewel), and Carvin Haggins & Ivan Barias (Musiq, Faith Evans), just to name a few.

Her highly anticipated Sophomore project “Love Phases” which includes the soul stirring single “Love  Like  I’ve  Never  Been  Hurt  Before”  is  a  collection  of  songs  expressing  facets of  the  joy and hurt of love, whether it be with regard to romantic or self-love.

In  addition  to  her  solo  efforts,  Carol  also  lends  her  impressive  vocals  to  other  artists, most notably, musically acclaimed R&B crooner and Prince of Sophisticated Soul, Will Downing’s live performances.  Her  performance  of  the  riveting  duet  “Nothing  Has  Ever  Felt,”  originally recorded  by  Will  Downing  and  the  incomparable  Rachelle  Ferrell,  is  sure  to  take  your  breath away.

Her passion for music education is demonstrated in her efforts as a mentor and educationalist. She  is  currently  the  Chapter  President  for  The  Recording  Academy®  Philadelphia Chapter,  a renowned  and  prestigious  organization  known  for  recognizing  the  epitome  of music  industry excellence and she is also a current member of the Philadelphia Music Industry Task Force, an initiative founded by Philadelphia City Council to promote awareness of and cultivate the arts in the city of Philadelphia.

She’s  a  songwriter,  a  label-owner,  a  vocalist,  an  educationalist,  a  mentor  and  a visionary. In addition,  her  beautiful  spirit,  sensuous  stage  shows  and  passionate  vocal  delivery  will soothe your ears and alter your spirit in the most alluring way.
