Former Windham Hill Records recording artist and Los Angeles resident Carol Tatum is available as a solo harpist, harp duo (harp/flute or harp/cello) and harp trio (harp/flute/cello) and performs with her internationally acclaimed group "Angels Of Venice."

Biography:

BIOGRAPHY/CREDITS: Carol has TOURED THE UNITED STATES and was a featured artist on Windham Hill's 'Winter Solstice' tour performing at The Kennedy Center and other performing arts centers (3,500+ seats). Her Windham Hill CD 'Angels of Venice' was submitted by her record label for a Grammy nomination. She is on twelve Windham Hill compilation CDs including 'Conversations with God, Disc 2,' 'Here, There and Everywhere: The Songs of the Beatles,' 'Winter Solstice On Ice' (including DVD), 'Summer Solstice I,' 'Summer Solstice II,' and more. Carol is a member of S.A.G. (Screen Actors Guild) and her music has been featured in documentaries, commercials and the feature film "Big Bully" with veteran soul group The Dramatics.

Carol has five independent CDs SOLD WORLDWIDE. Carol's recordings have been featured on NPR's syndicated radio program 'Echoes' airing to 165 national radio stations and are also sold worldwide including Japan and Europe. Her second CD 'Awake Inside A Dream' was reviewed in Billboard Magazine and 'highly recommended.' Carol's most recent recording is a holiday CD entitled 'Sanctus' which was featured on an NPR radio show and played in it's entirety twice on Christmas Day. For more information about Carol's recordings, please visit (search 'Carol Tatum' or 'Angels of Venice'). UPDATE: Carol is currently recording a new CD which will be released in Summer, 2008. This will be Carol's SIXTH CD.

WEDDING INFORMATION: Most brides do not realize that an unamplified harp is hard to hear. Most harpists only play acoustically or through a small amplifier. CAROL PLAYS THROUGH A PROFESSIONAL P.A. SYSTEM, and a professional soundman monitors her performances, which results in the very best possible sound for your important event.

Carol plays a custom made harp and her harp tone is characterized as WARM, RICH, AND FULL SOUNDING unlike the thin, brittle tone of most harps. Since her harp was custom made, you will not hear the brittle tone. Carol's beautiful harp looks like an antique with tasteful gold leaves and vines painted on the soundboard.

Carol's RATES ARE REASONABLE and she will travel from Santa Barbara to Palm Springs to San Diego and all of Southern California as well as to Arizona, Las Vegas, Texas, etc. and any out-of-state arrangements can be made. Themed events, such as the Renaissance or Middle Eastern, are available (Carol also plays the hammered dulcimer in the middle eastern/santour style). Percussion can be added to any musician combination and this is a unique and refreshing way to showcase classical instruments instead of a standard string quartet sound.

Special atmospheric LIGHTING is also available (PAR 20s, 40s, etc.) with amber, pink, violet, blue, etc. gels to create a 'large production' mood. Very large P.A. systems and lighting provided to Carol by G2 Audio, Los Angeles, California. Special props and costuming for themed events can also be provided.

Carol enjoys performing for weddings because it is one of the most spiritual days of any person's life and Carol is honored to be a part of it. Her performances are not just songs from sheet music. Carol embeds FEELING AND EMOTION INTO EVERY SONG played to create a magical, joyous atmosphere for you and your guests. A personal, emotional connection to your wedding is very important to Carol; playing harp is not just a job to Carol...it is an honor.

Carol resides in Glendale, California and works with her fiance, Ted Paulson, who is Hollywood's #1 firebreather for movies and television ('Charlie's Angels,' 'Coyote Ugly,' 'Big Fat Liar,' etc.). Ted and Carol also book variety arts acts and DJs for the entertainment industry and have an in-depth, intimate knowledge of event and party planning.

Carol was on time, extremely professional, and added a special class to our wedding ceremony. Many of our guests commented on how lovely the music was, and I would recommend her to anyone.

Everything was perfect! Carol was on time, professional and delivered a beautiful performance. The guests were truly impressed and enjoyed also chatting with Carol about her talent. She is a very pretty woman, inside and out, with an ethereal quality that lends itself well to playing the harp! I highly recommend Carol Tatum for your event too.

I was very satisfied with Carol! She came on time as she said she would and was so sweet. She played the harp like an angel. I got very great compliments about her and the way she played the harp set the mood just right. I couldn't have asked for anything more. She helped make my event a beautiful night to remember. Thanks again, Carol.
