Felicia Carter

November 16, 2006|By SAM SESSA

Hometown -- Baltimore

Current members --Felicia Carter, vocals; Bob Butta, piano; Amy Shook, bass; Eric Kennedy, drums

Founded in --1996

Style --jazz

Influenced by --Louis Prima, Judy Garland, Mildred Bailey, Sammy Davis Jr.

Notable --In the near future, Carter plans to record a new, as of yet untitled, studio album. About half the songs will be originals - including some blues tunes - and the others will be standards. Carter has performed some of the standards consistently during the past several years, and they haven't lost their appeal, she said.

Quotable --"What's interesting is that in the last five to 10 years I still am not sick of some of these songs that I sing over and over again. Really, the composition and the lyrics - if you can find something new in it, then it's a well-written song and fun to sing."

Hear Felicia Carter tomorrow and Saturday at the New Haven Lounge, 1552 Havenwood Road. Cover is $5. The music starts at 9:30 p.m. Call 410-366-7416 or go to feliciacarter.com.
