Carmen Ros was born in Madrid, Spain; producer, songwriter, singer and designer who has participated in several independent projects.
She studied Arts at the university, and her artistic
expression has been linked to music since she
was very young.
Carmen and her husband, the guitarist and composer Julio Garcia, started to record their musical ideas at their own studio Escalera Grabaciones Intrepidas, and have now edited eight of Julio's CDs.
They have also recorded and produced albums
for other artists like the British singer songwriter
Mark Walden and spanish performers Lara
Rosales and José Luis Montón; the latter's recent
Flamenco Kids album, recorded at Carmen's and
Julio's studio, included contributions from top flamenco artists Carmen Linares and Rosalia.
In 2014 Carmen and Julio recorded together their CD The Warmest Place which was their tribute to the era of musicals in film; songs were written in both English and Portuguese.
Carmen's latest production was Vassalo - Atlantica, in 2017, which was a Portuguese - Spanish collaboration involving the talents of Ana Vassalo (vocals), Julio Garcia (guitar) and Susana Rico (cello) together with Jacques Morelenbaum who contributed arrangements and cello on several tracks. She wrote all the album's lyrics.
Now, after being in the production and writing side of music for many years, Carmen has decided to launch her first album and share her fictions and truths, through her sweet and unique voice.
The album, has 15 songs that cover different styles: from Latin American song, Cuban rhythms, French song and Jazz, to MPB, with multiple references to the masters of Bossa Nova.
