CAROLYN HARDING
BIO

Born in Burderop Park, England to Robert and Della Harding. Carolyn is the oldest girl of four children, Bobby, Kim and Ricky. Her vocal career started in 1977, a student at Roosevelt High School, Roosevelt, Long Island. While busy doing community plays and concerts; Carolyn was discovered by a lady named Lori Butler. Lori became manager and took Carolyn under her wing and helped to develop the studio professionalism that Carolyn still holds strong today. Later, balancing a production deal and the New York school of Theatrical Arts, Carolyn landed a job with Disney World. Her first long term engagement away from home. Under the strict guidance of a very talented team of directors, stage managers, musicians, stylists, dancers and entertainment executives Carolyn developed and grew into a well-polished performer. This is the foundation on which she has based the many levels of show business that her career has been so blessed to have experienced.

Brother Ricky introduced Carolyn to Dance Music in 1986. He was an original member of the famed Paradise Garage. As did many of the key players in dance music at that time, Ricky passed away in 1990. Ricky was my biggest fan. In his memory Carolyn vowed to have a dance record released every year. She has done that and more. Some producers include Winston Jones, Dave Shaw, Joey Negro, Seamus, Deep Zone, Soul Solution, Keri Chandler, FUKUTOMI, and Shinji Takeda, DJ Kawasaki and Akakage among others. Carolyn has recorded for many of the top Dance Labels in the U.S. and abroad. Her records have climbed to the tops of numerous charts across the world. Some of her earlier works include background vocals for Sal Soul Orchestras, Jocelyn Brown, Louis Vega to name a few.

Carolyn has performed in many countries for thousands of adoring fans. When I sing, I wish to touch people in the most positive way. She has shared the stage with such greats as Phyllis Diller, Little Richard, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Shannon, Gwen Guthrie, Sylvester, Thelma Huston, Shirley Bassey, Jeff Krasner, Herb Williams and so many more. Carolyn has had the honor of performing as one of the Shirelles. She has created an enormous following in the dance market worldwide.

After a two ½ year tour up and down the eastern seaboard, in 1993 Harding returned to New York with her three year old daughter Brittney and settled on Long Island where she met and married Jeff Johnson. Looking for a weekly income at her craft, Carolyn was introduced to the wedding industry. As a freelance vocalist Carolyn worked for Hank Lane, Steven Scott, Starlight Orchestras, Ken James, Dance Jock and a host of other companies. Late in 1996 Harding started working with Peter Greco Music & Entertainment as a freelance vocalist. Soon after, Peter made a move to his own north shore office and Carolyn began a new career as Production Consultant, which also included other office management duties. Carolyn dedicated many hours in the years to follow cultivating new skills on the business side of the industry.

In May of 2000 just four months after the birth of her son Jaylin. Carolyn suffered injuries from a car accident. This made it difficult for her to maintain such a heavy schedule at the office and performances with Peter Greco. With much regret Carolyn had to resign from her position and commit more time to rehabilitation and family. By October, eager to participate in a business that she has grown to love, As a freelance artist I saw so many nightmares, where brides were crying because a band leader didn’t even care about special song presentations that had been requested months in advance Carolyn decided to open an office of her own CAROLYN HARDING MUSIC. “I want to be there for as many brides as possible to help in any way that I can”. Carolyn quickly establishing a relationship with an elegant, five star Caterer on the south shore, As well as an Events Coordinators. They shared the same ethics and commitment to excellence, quality and professionalism as Carolyn. She takes pride in customizing each package to fit the individual needs of the client. In spite of its newness the business started to grow and grow. Corporate Events, Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Night Clubs and Track Dates the phones started ringing.

Harding’s first love has always been Jazz and Blues. Her repertoire expands decades also including R&B, Pop, Gospel, Island, Jewish, Italian, Irish and other ethnic specialties. 2003 Carolyn was in the studio much of the year collaborating with Jazz impresario Al Macdowell on several production efforts. The first single “What is Love” was release early in 2004 on Gossip Records. Also that year named the ultimate Star Seeker Winner by Norwegian Cruise Line, Carolyn has been sailing the high seas performing for thousands of guests throughout the Caribbean as a headlining act on the main stage. In 2005 Carolyn recorded a few tracks for Randy Muller of Plaza Records, featured on the well-known hit “High”.
Currently, Carolyn has recorded her latest musical effort produced and written with her brother BeWise (Bobby), "All Because of You" on Deep Haven Music. BeWise and Carolyn's daughter Brittney are singing background on the tracks and performing live; keeping it all the family. This will be Harding’s Neo Soul / R&B debut after making such a strong presence in the Dance Music world for more than two decades.

Hello Carolyn,do you remember the interesting times at Disney? That was 19 years ago,and I'm still in the game as are you. I'm still married to Cristal and we have two boys. The oldest plays UPRIGHT bass and is pretty good on it. The other is intrested in computers and science. I just signed up this past Saturday, so I'm not completely 'there' yet. I remember a small picture of Eddie Murphy you showed me in 1989. I saw Mike at the airport in Orlando back in 99. I was working in Vegas at the Bellagio coming home for a break, and he was picking someone up. Billy Hall told me you were in this network, so I had to stop by and say hello. I hope to hear from you. Take care: James Cotmon!
