about

Winner of the RTE/RAAP Breakthrough Bursary, Carmen Browne’s music is a modern sound of timeless beauty, elegance and luxury. As a singer-songwriter, her music is firmly set in her Louisiana jazz/soul roots , but the branches of Carmen’s sound reach out into other contemporary genres. An assured vocalist and songwriter with a reassuring tone, she combines relaxation, comfort and a hint of mischief.

“Cloud Ballet” was produced by Everett Bradley, musician with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and band leader on The Meredith Vieira Show in collaboration with Alex Navarro (Queen Latifah, Rod Stewart, Engelbert Humperdink), Mark Plati, Hendrick Helmer and co-lyricist Denis Goodbody.

Track Name: Cloud Ballet
Let's find a place
Far away from the crowd
And stretch out on the grass
Watch each lonely cloud
One does a tango
The other a waltz
Some do the fandango
And some wispy somersaults

But the one we love the most
Is coming our way
Our own private performance
Of the Cloud Ballet

It has perfect rhythm
Though there isn't a sound
Not a move is out of place
From our seats here on the ground
The stage spreads out into space
We're enthralled in a trance
As we stretch out on the lawn
and watch the clouds dance

And the one we love the most
Is coming our way
Our own private performance
Of the Cloud Ballet

Cloud Ballet is happening above us
A private show for only you and me
And no one else can see them
Nobody else can see them
They change shape for only you and I to see
Track Name: Hypothetica
There's a place for us
we must never forget
Where we found ourselves
soon after we met
It's a place we hold so very dear
Do you know how to get there from here?

There are those who will say that it doesn't exist
that place of the heart that's so hard to resist
Hypothetica, that's what we called it back then
I know how to get there, let's go back again

There will always be space for sunshine and laughter
for little brown feet to come following after
There will always be music and grapes on the vine
and food cooked with love, served with grassy wine.
Track Name: Tell Me a Story
LOOKING OUTTA MY WINDOW
I SEE
THAT GIRL DOESN'T KNOW I SEE HER
AS SHE STRAIGHTENS UP HER DRESS
IS SHE MEETING HER BOYFRIEND
ACROSS THE STREET
TWO WOMEN WATCH HER PASS
AND I CAN GUESS JUST WHAT THEY'RE SAYIN

WON'T YOU TELL ME YOUR STORY

IN THE LINE FOR THE CHECK OUT
I SEE
AN OLD LADY COUNTING OUT HER CHANGE
AS THE MAN BEHIND HER SIGHS
SHE MOVES TO THE NEXT LINE
DOES SHE LIVE ALONE?
IS THIS THE ONLY CHANCE SHE GETS TO HAVE A CONVERSATION?

STORIES ALL AROUND
IN THE STREETS AND DEEP INSIDE OUR HEARTS
WAITING TO BE TOLD
STORIES EVERYWHERE
ALLOW YOURSELF TO SEE THE HIDDEN MEANINGS
TO BEHOLD
