MIAMI, Fla. (October 30, 2009) - Jazz artist Carmen Lundy will perform new music from her latest CD Solamente and hits from a career that spans three decades during An Evening with Carmen Lundy Benefit Concert on Saturday, November 14th at 8 p.m. in Ludder Hall. Held at Christ The King Lutheran Church (11295 SW 57th Ave., Miami), the event is a fundraiser for the annual Music InsideOUT concert series. Tickets available by contacting 305.665.5063.

A captivating live performer, Lundy will be joined by Anthony Wonsey on piano, Ryan Cross on bass, and Mayra Casales on percussion. A post-concert reception for VIP ticket holders will be held following the performance.

Lundy is a native of South Florida and continues to be celebrated around the world for her vocal artistry. She remains in high demand worldwide, appearing annually at festivals and shows in Japan, Europe, South America, the UK, Africa, the US and Canada.

On her 11th and most recent CD, Solamente, Lundy showcases the full range of her immense talent. A unique departure from her previous work, she arranged, produced, recorded, mixed and performed on the entire album.

Her vocals have been described as “sultry,” like her hometown climate and as a composer, Lundy's catalogue numbers over sixty published songs, one of the few jazz vocalists in history to accomplish such a distinction.

Lundy attended The University of Miami as an Opera major, but soon discovered that jazz was where her talent really shined. She later graduated with a degree in Studio Music and Jazz - one of the first singers to do so.

In 2003, the City of Miami officially proclaimed January 25 as Carmen Lundy Day.

A true artist in every since of the word, Lundy is also a gifted painter whose work has been exhibited in New York at The Jazz Gallery (Soho), The Jazz Bakery and the Madrid Theater in Los Angeles. Examples of her paintings may be found in the booklets accompanying each of her recordings.
