The Official Website of Carol Selick

Welcome To My Website!

Welcome To My Website!

I’m excited to share with you some important milestones in my music career, as well as the next creative step in my journey!

I have completed Beyond the Song, an autobiographical novel based on my adventures in the music business, during the late Sixties and early Seventies. The book also highlights my mentorship and collaboration with legendary songwriter Rose Marie McCoy.

My book is available on BookBaby and Amazon. Click on either link below:
You can contact me about Author Visits where I’ll be performing original songs as well as my favorite singer/songwriter songs featured in my book.

I so enjoyed writing this book, that I’m going back to my music roots to create a program of original music from that era. I’ll be performing my own songs, along with songs by my favorite female singer-songwriters. It’s high time for a tribute to the strong, amazingly talented trailblazers who hugely influenced my musical development. A big THANK YOU to: Laura Nyro, Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon!
