The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol

Faye Carolhas been part of the Bay Area music scene since she moved from Meridian, Mississippi to Pittsburg, California as a young girl. Known widely as the ‘Dynamic Miss Faye Carol,’ she defies labels -- singing everything from cabaret to gospel to jazz.

Now she’s passing along the joy she finds in song at her monthly ‘School of Getdown’ classes in Berkeley, where she uses her own love of music to help everyday people find their voice.

CAROL: Don't breathe I can't, breathe I can. Breathe I will. Breathe I'm gonna try. Cause don't nothing beat a failure but a try.

Faye Carol will be at the SFJAZZ Center this Friday and Saturday with a show called Carolizing Christmas. To find out more, click here.
