Carolyn Montgomery-Forant is a MAC, Nightlife and BackStage Bistro Award winning vocalist, recording artist and songwriter.

She lives and performs in New York City (at 54 Below, The Town Hall and the Laurie Beechman Theater), as well as venues from the Plush Room in San Francisco, Davenports in Chicago and other hot spots from Seattle, WA to Rockland, ME.

Carolyn returns to the stage in her solo show Visible Phoenix, with music director Jon Weber (NPR, Piano Jazz), Matt Scharfglass, (bass) Sean Harkness (guitar), Jonathan Kantor (winds) and Rich Huntley (percussion) as well as her bevy of back-up girls, The Fine Whine (Margaret Kelly, Rebecca Kendall and Stephanie Thomas). This show which runs for six months (see Upcoming Events page for details) is filled with her own hilarious original songs, and music that spans the gamut from Broadway to Jazz to Pop. Carolyn will bring Visible Phoenix to clubs across the country and in Europe in 2015.

Carolyn's blog, Invisible Phoenix, provides an inspirational look at women over 40 who own their world by harnessing a new and incredible power.

When you browse you will find everything from exciting musical happenings to organic martini recipes, to pictures of dogs in flight. Life is to be lived authentically; laughing helps.
