About Carol Lipnik and Spookarama
Coney Island born Carol Lipnik’s music does more than evoke a shadow world of mysterious, often misunderstood creatures, from sideshow freaks and B-movie monsters to love’s obsessive victims. It creates that world, bringing it into audible being through her stunningly versatile four-octave voice and expressive, impeccably crafted songs. Her live shows draw audiences in with an intimacy and intensity that is both theatrical and deeply musical.
Performing as a duo with longtime pianist/musical director Dred Scott, the repertoire – ranging from mad, carnival-ride tangos and waltzes to dramatic Bowie-esque rock and intricate, semi-acoustic art songs – is unified by the singer’s visionary commitment to the beauty of strangeness and the strangeness of beauty.
Carol is the recipient of the 2014 Peter S. Reed Foundation grant for music and has six recordings available on her Mermaid Alley Music label. Visit mermaidalley.com for more info.
