Internationally Acclaimed Soul Artist CORNELL “CC” CARTER to Release His Highly Anticipated New Album “ONE LOVE”

16 Jul

040232259920

 

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CA – Cornell “CC” Carter has been gracing stages and entertaining thousands of fans with his signature sound around the world for many years. He is known for his phenomenal stage presence, his high-powered audience engagement, and his extraordinary and dynamic vocal skills. CC is now set to unleash his highly anticipated new album titled ONE LOVE. The CD will release worldwide on August 3, 2018, two weeks ahead of the digital release on August 17, 2018.

The first Single from the album, “That Feelin’,” was released on April 27, 2018 and has been #1 on all significant Soul Charts in the UK. CC achieved what has been called the elusive “Hat Trick” (#1 on All 3 Soul Charts at the same time) which no other artist has ever accomplished! ONE LOVE has a variety of outstanding Producers on its roster such as Morgan Howell (Soulpersona, UK), Brian Braziel, David Council, and Kirk Crumpler. Cornell says, “ONE LOVE is a message of Oneness with the planet and each other and allowing Love and Music to be our guide to a better world!”

Cornell’s strong love for music developed when he was a young man growing up in a San Francisco home chock full of Jazz, Blues, Funk, Soul, and Gospel, which has been the inspiration for his creativity and songwriting. He co-wrote and produced his internationally acclaimed 2016 album In The Moment with co-producer Kirk “KC” Crumpler, who has produced various award-winning artists. A collection of 13 diverse tracks spanning R&B, Funk, and heart-piercing Soul numbers, In The Moment is a mix of the past and present, featuring solid classics and contemporary chart-toppers. CC performed all lead and background vocals on the entire album and was also instrumental in the music’s production.

Following the release of In The Moment, Cornell was able to collaborate with other producers (DJ Spen, Boogie Back) and put out several highly acclaimed remixes which have received great reviews in the US and Europe. On May 19, 2017, Cornell released Vindicated Soul, a remarkable collection of soulful covers of artists including Marvin Gaye, Al Green, and Willie Hutch. Vindicated Soul also includes a remix of the classic CC original track “Where Do We Go.” (www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NNT7rrkE-k)

CC has had many once in a lifetime musical experiences to draw from, but two of the highest points of his career so far has been sharing the stage as an opening act for the late great Godfather of Soul, James Brown, and the legendary Ray Charles. In addition to his various headline performances, he has also opened for other household name brand artists such as The WhispersThe TemptationsNatalie Cole, and Kool and The Gang. As part of Narada Michael Walden’s all-star band, which performs at various NMW Foundation events, he has shared the stage with other renowned world-class artists such as Neil Schon (Journey), Dionne Warwick, Ronnie Spector, and many other legendary performers!

Throughout the years, CC has appeared on many albums, and he continues to be one of the most in-demand session vocalists in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was honored to perform with world-renowned, multi-platinum guitarist Carlos Santana, providing vocals on two tracks that appeared on Santana IV and on Santana’s latest album with the legendary Ron Isley. His experience and professionalism have made him an A-list vocalist for Tarpan Studios, appearing on many tracks with Grammy and Emmy Award winning producer Narada Michael Walden. He also contributed vocals on various Tarpan artist releases, including Jennifer Saran’s new albums Merry Christmas, You Are Loved and Walk With Me, and many others.

CC loves to share his talents with aspiring artists and veteran performers alike. He established CDC Productions, his own production and record company geared toward assisting these artists to follow their dreams while also teaching them about the time and dedication it takes to reach their goals. Cornell has been involved with many charities and non-profits over the past few years, and his vision is to continue to uplift and engage people all around the world with Music and with One Love.

SoulandJazzandFunk Review: Cornell “CC” Carter “That Feelin'” Single

23 Apr

Screen Shot 2018-04-18 at 1.30.03 PM

 

For the past few years San Francisco’s CORNELL CARTER (who sometimes just works using his initials “C.C.”) had made himself plenty of friends in the soul community. The one time top session singer (he’s worked with people like Ray Charles, James Brown, The Whispers, The Temptations, Natalie Cole, Kool and the Gang and most recently Narada Michael Walden) really took off with his long player ‘In The Moment’ from which a series of well-crafted singles and their remixes scaled the credible soul charts.

The good news is that CC is putting the finishing touches to a new album – ‘One Love’ – due June/July. Cornell says it’s his homage to the world of classic soul, R&B and jazz, but in the meantime there’s a new single on the way. ‘That Feelin” will be the album’s lead track and though it’s not officially available till April 27th, previews reveal a tasty, insistent modern soul beater. Cornell is in great vocal form (remember, the man has pedigree!) and the vibe and groove are bob on…. so they should be! The tune was co-written and produced by UK muso Morgan Howell, better known, of course, as ‘Soulpersona’…. and if anyone knows the modern soul groove, then it’s Morgan H! It’s all looking good for that new long player!

Music Street Journal Track-by-Track Review: Cornell CC Carter “Vindicated Soul”

11 Oct

814519022985

“If you find yourself longing for the classic soul music of the 1970s, you will probably feel at home here. It’s obvious that Cornell CC Carter shares that feeling to a large degree. You can tell it in the dedications on the disc, but even more so you can feel it, and hear it, in the music. This is very much in keeping with the classic soul music era. If you dig that kind of stuff, you will like this. It’s both classic and classy.

Track by Track Review

Intro: This short (less than a minute and a half) piece is built on some definite old school soul sounds. Of course, it’s dedicated to a number of the legends of that musical style, and they are called out by name here. This is classic sounding stuff.

All the Way Around: More killer old school soul is on the menu here. The cut feels like something that could have been released in the 1970s.

Watching You: Perhaps the keyboard sounds on this bring into a bit more modern place. That said, this is still something that feels like it would have fit into the 1970s. There is a funk, almost disco, sound to this number. I love the funk breakdown on this piece.

I Choose You: I dig this one a lot, too. It’s another classic soul sounding tune. It loses that disco/funk element that we heard on the last one. This doesn’t lose that 1970s vibe, though.

Next to You: There is a healthy helping of electronic fusion built into this one. It’s a classy cut that brings back some of that funky thing. Still, it’s a retro slab of cool. This might have the best vocal arrangement of the whole disc.

Where Do We Go (Boogie Back Remix): Now, this cool cut makes me think of Marvin Gaye quite a bit. It has some definite funk and more modern elements built into it, too. This is one of my favorites on the whole disc, really. It’s just so classy.

Brother’s Gonna Work It Out: With a lot of funk, this has a much more modern sound. This feels closely tied to modern soul music. That said, it clearly has ties to the retro elements, too. While this is a fun cut, it’s not up to the same level as the previous pieces.

Look What You’ve Done for Me: This is an energized soul number with both modern and classic sounds at its heart.”
