Carol Lipnik is acclaimed for her hauntingly beautiful multi-octave voice and her spellbinding performances of darkly humorous and wrenchingly honest songs in which waves of melancholy break on a debris-strewn shoreline of ecstasy. The inimitable Coney Island native has five albums out on Mermaid Alley Music.

"Carol Lipnik is that rare bird, the complete artist, with the soaring voice of a Dawn Upshaw, and the probing musical intelligence of Joni MItchell." 
          - John Kelly

" One of New York's FINEST singers and most original songwriters!!! 
...Carol's new songs, which are truly art songs, set in the jewel like quality of her voice reach such levels of glorious individuality that we were all gobsmacked."
         - Penny Arcade
"Carol embodies all we love about Coney Island, not only in her incredible singing voice and musical style, but in her personal dedication to the eerie and fantastic." - Richard Eagan

"The Barbra Streisand for the weird." - Marilyn Cvitanic

Coming in April 2015
Carol Lipnik releases her enigmatic new art-song collection,
Almost Back to Normal
A collaboration with luminous pianist Matt Kanelos and eclectic violin virtuoso Jacob Lawson, the new album blends lush, mystical soundscapes with hints of the baroque, jaunty Brecht-Weill cabaret, oldschool soul music and the avant garde, all of it imbued with Carol's signature phantasmagoria and droll, absurdist humor. Recorded using a 1895 Steinway grand piano in the world-class sonics of Peter Karl Studios in Brooklyin, it's a collection of tersely intense songcraft and longer-scale, psychedelically-tinged mood pieces. Stay tuned for a release date and a New York album release show!

Carol is the winner of the 2014 Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant for music
