ABOUT THE ARTIST
The sultry singer/songwriter has graced stages from her hometown of Philadelphia to across the globe, winning fans and admirers with her extraordinary voice. Highly regarded in the music community for her vocal dexterity, mesmerizing performances, and genuinely warm personality, Carol Riddick’s time is now.
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 with Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Since then, Carol has blessed the tracks of many notable artists. She is featured on records by Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, Norman Brown, and Kindred. Most recently her distinct vocal delivery can be heard on Musiq’s “Soulstar,” the title track on his multi-platinum album. Yet even while working with the industry’s finest, Carol always dreamed of sharing her own music. Now, with the release of her debut album, Carol has evolved into an artist in her own right. After partnering with Axis Music Group, a Philadelphia-based record company, Carol spent the majority of 2005 writing material for her project.
Moreover, Carol creatively spearheaded her debut album. What some may consider a huge undertaking for an artist came natural to Carol, who co-produced and co-wrote the majority of the tunes on ‘Moments Like This.’ While penning her lyrics, Carol drew inspiration from her loving family and an unyielding quest for living her dreams. Musically it was imperative to deliver a stellar live sound. To achieve this goal, she collaborated with Grammy award winning producers and songwriters including James Poyser, Anthony Bell, and Carvin Haggis & Ivan Barias. Carol’s fondness for the Philly International and Motown recordings she grew up on is reflected in ‘Moments Like This,’ which carries on the tradition of music that moves people. The album is laced with live instrumentation and purely soulful vocals; it is simply music for the grown and sexy. Highlights include a song dedicated to her daughter entitled “All I Wanna Be (Krystal),” the women’s anthem “Brown Eyed Girl,” and the hit single “You Better Not Hurt Me.”
