CARLY OZARD SINGS HER WAY TO BROADWAY



Ozard may look different every time - but the voice is always strong


CARLY OZARD – TOPS THE CHARTS WITH A NEW SHOW

CHARM - WIT – CARLY’S GOT IT ALL IN A NEW SHOW







Maybe it’s just her voice – and then again, maybe it’s orchestrations. Whatever it is, this was one of the most gorgeous, enjoyable and heartbreaking evenings that I’ve been to in a long, long time.

Yeah – Carly knows how to bring beautiful and touching music to her shows that show actual details and emotions. There is even sort of a plot about romance and how it sometimes fails.

As usual, Carly has assembled a fantastic Band – led by the talented, always smiling KELLY PARK. At this show he played the piano -- the man has fingers spun from Gold. And of course the rest of the boys in the Band turned in exciting performances.

Ozard reaches out for music pieces that are undeniably heart wrenching. Oh, sure she sings some light and fun songs also – but it is the tearjerker songs that really get to you.

Every singer seeks a repertoire that will help him or her stand out from the crowd – and at the Rrazz room, she brought down the house.

Here are a few songs that Ozard brought to the mike. There was her outstanding version of “Carousel”. If that don’t make your socks roll up and down, then nothing will. She said to her audience – “the moral of the song is don’t piss a crazy person off!” From ‘Miss Liberty’ there was the upbeat and fun ‘Falling Out of Love Can Be Fun’ (Irving Berlin).

 Just before Carly started to sing the song ‘Nine’ the musical – a cell phone went off. Carly shouted out – “Hey, turn your phone off. Who do you think you are.”? He was embarrassed of course, but we all handled it well.

Loved the touching and hopeful “Long as I Can See The Light (music & lyrics by John Fogerty) from ‘Credence Clearwater Revival’.

Those songs about are just tidbits of all the joys that you will hear at Carly’s new show. With her – it’s a perfect marriage of music and lyrics. Who needs boyfriends? She’s over that.

Ozard stands out in the crowd of singers. She is not only a great singer, but has magnetic appeal as she tells stories in between the songs -- little tidbits about her travails in life.

The “Set” that she has put together is definitely something that will probably end up in New York.

Be sure to catch her when she comes back to http://www.theRrazzRoom.com/
