“She’s capable of manhandling a crowd like no other Bay Area singer, and can make any local jazz club feel like Carnegie Hall.” (East Bay Express)
"Every Faye Carol performance is a master class -- a deep dive into the soul-steeped marrow of jazz and blues. A Bay Area institution, the Berkeley vocalist needs only one set to leave an indelible impression on her listeners who know just what to expect if they pay attention to her billing as The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol." (Andrew Gilbert, Bay Area News Group)
Bay Area legend Faye Carol remains true to her Mississippi roots, infusing the blues into everything she sings, from soul and R+B to the cabaret tradition. She began her career immersed in gospel, touring nationally with The Angelaires in the 1960s. She formed her jazz ensemble in the 1970s, and was also active in Oakland’s innovative funk scene. She has shared the stage with many notable artists through the decades; most recently, she has been heard with The Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, Howard Wiley & The Angola Project, Sista Kee & IOP, and Mal Sharpe’s Big Money in Jazz Band.
