One of reggae's most intelligent and charismatic performers, Sister Carol has led the way for the new wave of women in reggae. Not only does she strive for excellence in the field of music, but she has also achieved success in the movies, with appearances in Something Wild and Married To the Mob, both directed by Jonathan Demme. Sister Carol is also a fully certified teacher with a degree in Education from the City University of New York, as well as a wife and mother. However, it is her music, first and foremost, that truly defines this unique performer.

In 1973, Sister Carol moved from the island of Jamaica to New York City, becoming immersed in the thriving dancehall scene. It was her interest in dancehall and socially conscious DJs like Brigadier Jerry that led her to begin DJing herself. Having won talent contests in both Negril and New York, she was then presented with the opportunity to open up for the legendary Meditations, an opportunity that not only brought her greater recognition in the reggae world, but opened the doors for her to record her first two records, Liberation For Africa and Black Cinderella. Since then her career has only moved forward.

Sister Carol was honored for her musical excellence with a Grammy nomination for 1996ís Lyrically Potent (HB 213). Major music publications, including Billboard, Village Voice, Option, Album Network, and many others have bestowed glowing reviews on this brilliant CD. Continuing her trend of blending reggae, hip-hop, and other urban music, Lyrically Potent excels as Sister Carolís finest release yet.

Other titles on Heartbeat include Black Cinderella (HB 193), which was originally released in 1984 by Jah Life. In addition to being available for the first time on CD, Heartbeat's reissue also includes two bonus tracks, "Oh Jah (Mi Ready)" and "My Children." Wrapping up Sister Carol's work on Heartbeat is her 1994 release, Call Mi Sister Carol (HB 93), a CD that produced three hit singles, "I Am What I Am" (with KRS-1), "Call Mi Sister Carol," and "Blackman Time."

With a style as dynamic as she wants to be, Sister Carol's roots are strong, and through her gift of music, this Black Cinderella will continue to strive for awareness, consciousness, enlightenment, and education for all.
