Caroline Cotter's CD Release Party featuring the Jonny Peiffer Quartet
Caroline Cotter, along with The Jonny Peiffer Quartet, will perform her Kittery CD Release Show at The Dance Hall Kittery on May 2nd at 7:30 PM.
The Portland based singer-songwriter's debut album, Dreaming as I Do has already received national recognition reaching #5 on the Folk DJ charts in February, with the second most played song of the month, Bella Blue. With stories and dreams about love, adventure, and searching for home, Dreaming as I Do treats you to an eclectic mix of melodic honesty. With a captivating soprano voice and award-winning songwriting, Caroline's songs take you from an intimate Parisian salon to the mountains of Colorado and into the depths of the human heart.
Along with a love of music, Caroline has an insatiable passion for travel and in the past ten years Caroline has lived in and traveled to 27 countries on five continents. While writing and recording Dreaming as I Do, she worked for the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) in Portland, Maine.
Prior to working at CIEE, Caroline spent time working in France, Portugal, Spain, Thailand, studying yoga in India, and traveling in South America. In addition to writing songs in English, she sings in Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, and Sanskrit, bringing the world to her audience, connecting across cultures through her music.
Dreaming as I Do features two original songs in French; Il est jaune (It is yellow), a playful and light love song about all things yellow, and La Marionette, a haunting ballad depicting a lonely string puppet's search for love. Other tracks, such as My Evergreen and This Place, reflect the songwriter's love for her home in Maine, while Bella Blue and Journey in C share the sentiments of a traveler on the move.
The album was produced by Caroline and fellow singer-songwriter Putnam Smith at The Studio, with features by some of the area's finest musicians including Joe Walsh, Lauren Rioux, Adam Frederick, Mark Tipton, Chas Lester, and Sara Hallie-Richardson.
