Carolyne Mas

Carolyne Mas (born 20 October 1955, New York, United States) is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, pianist, producer, who broke out of the Greenwich Village music scene boom of the late 1970s, along with other artists such as Steve Forbert, The Roches, and Willie Nile. Although she remains relatively unknown in the United States, except for a loyal cult of fans, she managed to gain popularity in Europe and Canada, mostly due to the use of television as a promotional tool in these markets.

Her energetic live shows, especially during the late 1970s and early 1980s whilst signed to Mercury Records, were well received. Mas toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe extensively with a band of musicians including Crispin Cioe of the The Uptown Horns, who later went on to play with acts such as The Rolling Stones, and keyboardist Charlie Giordano, who later played alongside Bruce Springsteen.

Mas currently lives in Florida with her husband, son, and mother. Her Aunt Ana, whom she had cared for since 2002, died in April 2008. "Our Animal Haus, Inc.", Mas' non-profit sanctuary for unwanted, abused, and special needs animals and birds, continues to grow in size and she last performed in Italy, New York, and New Jersey in 2006. Most recently, she reunited with Mark Johnson to record a cover of a song, written by the Italian singer Graziano Romani, called "The Most Crucial Enemy". The song was recorded at Mas' home. It is due to be released in Italy later in 2008 as part of a tribute CD for Romani's fan club in Italy. You can hear it at both of Mas' MySpace pages, [ [ www.myspace.com/carolynemas and www.myspace.com/carolynemasmusic] ] , along with video footage from her early performances.
