The Official Website of Carol Selick
Welcome To My Website!
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!
Carol is a gifted songwriter and she wrote in the 1970s and ‘80s with Hall-of-Famer Rose Marie McCoy, whose songs were performed by Nat King Cole, Louis Jordan, Maxine Brown, Ike & Tina Turner, Elvis Presley and other luminaries.
Carol’s recordings include two CDs featuring a mix of standards and her own work: Life Is Believing In You and Just Gonna Think About Today, which includes “Let Me Bring Out the Animal in You,” co-written with McCoy. She is also the featured vocalist on Gordon James’s Come on Down, released in March 2019, a CD showcasing original compositions on which Carol performs two of her own songs, “Cuddle Queen” and “Weary Women’s Blues.”
