Biography

Carmen Corcoz was born September 7, 1986, in Sibiu, Romania. The singer-songwriter and actress first performed on stage at the age of 5, winning first place at a Talent TV Show in Romania. Carmen revealed many of her talents at a young age while performing live, demonstrating her vocal ability with pop, soul, and classical music. While just turning 9, Carmen and her family moved to Toronto, Canada to better establish a future for her acting and singing career. Continuing throughout her childhood Carmen’s poetry was published at the age of 13, winning a “Famous Poet Society Award” leading into her strong passion for songwriting. “I was always fascinated with poetry. One day I asked my mom why she named me Carmen, and she told me it meant “Poem” in Latin, so she started telling me poems, I instantly fell in love with just the idea of expressing in poetic ways.”

 

As a young artist, Carmen also wondered about the origins of music. Becoming a historian of jazz, soul and blues, she understood why music is not only important to her, but to all of us. She started writing songs while performing at numerous charity and community events, soon to get her voice discovered. Just turning 18 years old Carmen was asked to enter a Romanian Beauty and Talent competition in Montreal winning the title of “Miss Diaspora of Canada 2005”. Carmen soon went back to Romania to appear and perform on several TV shows, later to receive a congratulated appearance by the county’s own President Traian Basescu. “Music speaks to me in many different ways. I can’t imagine life without doing what I love and am best at. You always have to follow your dreams, no matter what the circumstance.”

 

In 2011 Carmen released her first EP called “Inspired” in affiliation with SickKids Foundation. The proceeds from song downloads and EP purchases went to the sick kids at the Toronto Hospital. The big affiliation was a way for Carmen to introduce herself as an artist who is here to inspire through her meaningful lyrics and music. Her outstanding work got recognition internationally, being published in several Magazines,  winning XS Artist of the Month at 99.1 Radio, and even capturing David Suzuki’s attention by performing at his event “Soupstock” in 2012.”I believe we all have a gift, and that gift is to give.”The inspiring artist released her most recent Single “Me and You” on YTV Canada July 2013, along with a Music Video that was produced by Kuya Productions and Jed Harper, receiving over 200,000.00 views! Her next Single “Dare to Dream” is set to release this year, featuring “Yexian”, a talented Reggaeton singer from Puerto Rico (www.yexianmusic.com). Carmen’s New Album “Poezia” creates a soulful mixture of Rhythm, Pop, Dance and Latin music drawing influences from the likes of Shakira, Leona Lewis, Rihanna, and Bruno Mars. “What I love about this album is that all the songs have a strong connection to something that everyone can relate to. I am excited to share my new music Internationally!”
