Carmen has been touring Canada relentlessly for the last three years sharing stages with The Rheostatics, Matt Mays, Blue Rodeo, Joel Plaskett, Sloan, Slowcoaster, Wintersleep, and Hey Rosetta!, tightening up licks in preparation for the release of her long anticipated debut record. The record, tracked at Carriage house Studios in Connecticut and Soundpark Studios in Cape Breton, is raw, melodic, at times abrasive and heartbreakingly gorgeous. As well as the new record, Carmen’s rendition of Neil Young’s “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere” was featured on an all female Neil Young tribute compilation in 2008 released on Laundromat Records. Carmen’s vocal talent was also featured in the award winning indie film “Just Buried”. She also caught the ear of Grammy award winning songwriter Jesse Harris (Norah Jones, Bright Eyes) and has put her own spin on two of his songs for the upcoming album.
Ms.Townsend and her band have evolved into one of the most promising rock acts in the country. The summer included some new opportunities including a 3-week tour across Australia courtesy of Code One Entertainment and a headlining slot at Canada’s Best Music Festival “Evolve”. Now, Carmen is preparing to head back to Australia in December 2010 as opening act on a tour for popular Australian band, The Fumes.
