Carmen Daye is a singer and composer with a highly individual style. During her career she has worked with Harry Gregson-Williams, Trevor Horn, Michael Kamen, Michael McDonald, William Orbit,Dave Stewart, John Williams and Hans Zimmer. She has written and remixed tracks for KPM, West One, Juice and Cavendish music libraries. Her music has been used in countless TV programmes, films and advertising campaigns – her favourite being the Gothic choral track featured in the notorious cinema scene in the cult movie Donnie Darko.
Carmen is a self-confessed musical magpie, recently adding Khoomi (Mongolian throat singing), frame drum and swing jazz ukulele to her repertoire. This project has played well to this tendency and we find harmonica, flamenco guitar and pan-pipes thrown into the mix.
She loved the experience of writing for this album with its sunny skies and exotic scents – another excuse to go exploring.
