Carter Calvert - 1

This will be Carter’s third performance in Gainesville, GA. Many will recognize her for her impressive set of pipes in Neil Berg’s 101 and 102 Years of Broadway, presented by The Arts Council in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Carter will make her Gainesville Jazz debut, April 23, 2016 with The Arts Council’s Evenings of Intimate Jazz floating effortlessly between Jazz standards, American Songbook classics, Broadway selections and Pop hits, making each song her own with a rich soulful sound. Without violence to the originals, Carter is capable of retelling the stories and speaks anew the meaningfulness of the music. Carter possesses a voice so well focused, a powerhouse capable of raising goose bumps, combined with a come-hither vixen sensuality that keeps her listeners in a spell. Her capability goes well beyond the stage, where Calvert displays a certain facility for rubbing some old songs in just the right way, making them catch fire.

She has the talent and skill to move effortlessly from the delicate to the determined, from poetry to power. More than a frontal assault, this will be victory through allurement.
