“Lounge 6301” returns to B’nai Israel welcoming country singer/songwriter Carmel Helene. Carmel’s powerful voice, along with her guitar driven, high energy style has gained the attention of audiences from L.A. to Nashville to D.C. And now she will gain yours. You may recognize Carmel from her extensive touring with Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus, as well as Michael Bolton, Luis Miguel and Johnny Hallyday. She has appeared as a backing vocalist on shows such as American Idol, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars and many others. Carmel Helene began her singing career doing session work for national commercials and television and has also contributed to a number of film recordings. That led her to write, record and produce her 2010 self-titled debut EP, Carmel Helene. But it was rock, not country and not what Carmel ultimately wanted. In 2013, during a
performance in Nashville, Eliot Shatzman, (B’nai Israel member) founder of independent record label Shatz Music Group, took notice of Carmel’s powerful voice and strong performance. That, along with her exotic looks and rapport with the audience separated her from the crowd. Shatzman signed her immediately and began work on Carmel Helene’s recently released EP New Frontier, produced by Jim Kimball (Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Faith Hill, Garth Brooks). “Sharing my love of music with the world is my goal. I like to combine my love of rock and country music to create a bit of an edge.
