Carol Duboc


GOLD NOTE MUSIC has announced the latest release from CAROL DUBOC - hailed as "one of the most interesting and dynamic jazz singers of her generation" by Jazz Times Magazine . The platinum-selling vocalist, songwriter and arranger introduces Songs for Lovers, a sexy and soulful collection of eight new compositions, which also includes romantic renditions of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" and "Feel Like Making Love." The disc's first single, "My Valentine," leaped to prominence upon its release at #13 on the Radio & Records" Smooth Jazz Indicator" chart and debuted at #7 on the Smoothjazz.com "Most Added" chart. Christopher Loudon of the Jazz Times Magazine writes "[Carol Duboc's] ‘Feel Like Making Love' captures the same sense of languid satisfaction that made the Roberta Flack original so engaging."
As a writer and arranger, Duboc has sold over three million records and has worked with Patti Labelle, Tom Jones and Jeff Lorber, among many others. Songs for Lovers is Duboc's fourth release following her three critically acclaimed albums beginning in 2002, and her big screen debut as "Pumpkin" in Be Cool in 2005, which starred John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Danny DeVito. Duboc's music can be heard on radio stations around the world.
Carol Duboc first stepped out as a solo artist with her debut album With All That I Am in 2001. She immediately began earning critical acclaim as one of the top new jazz singers on the music scene. Sandy Shore of smoothjazz.com announced "Smooth Jazz has a new poster girl!" And Don Heckman (Los Angeles Times) writes, "Duboc's singing has the strength and originality to quickly move her into the top level of jazz vocalists - regardless of genre."
Her inspirational short CD, I Stand for America, earned Carol national recognition. In a moving tribute to the heroes and the fallen at Ground Zero, CNN's "Larry King Live" chose Carol's inspirational song "I Stand for America" as the musical backdrop for a video album of photos now burned into our minds. Following her auspicious debut, Carol's second full release was simply titled Duboc in 2003. Carol's 2005 release, entitled All Of You, is another extension of her tremendous talent. She was also featured on NBC and SmoothJazz TV. Christopher Loudon of Jazz Times Magazine writes that Carol "has cleverly shaped an evocative excavation of love in all its forms."
Originally from Kansas City, Missouri, Carol moved to Los Angeles to attend USC's school of music where she majored in vocal performance and music composition and minored in music engineering. While at USC, Carol's soulful vocal style and songwriting talents attracted the attention of R&B producer Teddy Riley. She quickly began working with some of the best producers, writers and musicians in the business, including Jeff Lorber, Gerald Albright, Hubert Laws, George Duke, Maurice White, Patrick Moten, Joe Sample and the Fine Young Cannibals.
Her writing and arranging success has included, among other things, the song "This Word is All" on Patti LaBelle's Gems CD, which went Gold, as well as the title cut, "Precious", on Chante Moore's Gold CD. Carol also penned the hit single "Never Do You Wrong" for Stephanie Mills, and the song "That Boy" on Jade's Jade To The Max CD, which attained Platinum status.
Carol is also the founder of the popular website Wineandmusic.com, the #3 radio station in the genre on Live365.com, which specializes pairing fine wine with great music.
