It is a big thrill for us to present Carmen Browne on her debut appearance at Bagots Hutton LIVE. Based in Dublin but doing most of her work in the UK and USA it is a rare oppurtunity to see this wonderful singer and exemplary professional at work. She will be performing a mix of her original compositions and some jazz standards in her own unique style.


Carmen Browne is an African American contemporary jazz singer and songwriter living in Dublin, Ireland. She was the winner of the 2012 RAAP/RTE Breakthrough Bursary Award, a national honour that was held in Ireland’s National broadcasting station RTE. Browne was born in Bloomington, Indiana, sharing a birthplace with Hoagy Charmichael amongst other artists. She came to Ireland as a student teacher to get an international experience before she started her adult life, but ended up moving to Ireland permanently.

Her performance highlights have included being the opening act for M People and Billy Ocean in Dublin’s Vicar Street Venue. She has been the headliner in Dublin’s Workman’s Club and The Grand Social, a featured performer at the Dublin Soul Picnic Festival and the Bray Jazz Festival. Carmen was also accepted on the 3-week jazz workshop at Banff in Alberta, Canada where she shared a stage and studied closely with Vijay Iyer, Imani Uzuri, Jen Shyu, Padmashri Aruna Sairam, Steve Coleman, Tyshawn Sorey, Marcus Gilmore and Ambrose Akinamusire.

Carmen’s self-composed songs evoke a relaxed image. Her luxurious, dreamy soundscape belies the formality of her training, allowing anyone who listens to bask in their own hopes and dreams. She is currently working with Everett Bradley (touring member with Bon Jovi and former member of Bruce Springsteen’s Band), who produced her debut EP Cloud Ballet on her album “Sublime Light” due to be released in Autumn 2019.
