With music made famous by Janis Joplin, Dusty Springfield, Tina Turner, Carol King, Lesley Gore, Dionne Warwick and more, Carole J. Bufford celebrates the songstresses of the 1960s. Named the "Best Cabaret Show of the Year" by BroadwayWorld magazine, "You Don't Own Me" presents Carole at her very best putting her own inimitable spin on the classics of the 60s, delving into and celebrating a time of great change and transition in America and across the pond. The musical and cultural landscape was never the same after these bold and daring women planted their flags and ensured their voices were heard. A recipient of the Nightlife, Bistro and BroadwayWorld Awards for Outstanding Vocalist, Carole has become one of the most sought after young performers on the American jazz & cabaret scene. Carole recently enjoyed rave reviews and sold out runs of "You Don't Own Me" at Feinstein's/54 Below in New York as well as a 10-month solo run at New York’s Birdland Jazz Club. Carole has also been featured in Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook series at Jazz at Lincoln Center. www.carolejbufford.com
"The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand."
