Carolyn Fe Blues Collective offers up the Blues in all its shades, full band or acoustic duo/trio setup. Carolyn Fe Blues Collective has the unique ability to serve it's audiences with highly charged emotions. Original material and cover songs are served up with their special touch bringing the audiences to feel the sweet purity of love's first kiss to the raunchy edge of a woman scorned, all the way to the tease of languid sexiness.

Carolyn-Fe Trinidad has the deep soul of an artist who has lived on the fringe for most of her life giving her lyrics an insight and depth that must be heard. She writes and produces original material that contains lyrics with highly charged emotions. Backed by veteran musicians who’ve played with the likes of Percy Sledge, Fat Boy Slim and Seal, the band delivers musical phrasing that evokes deep sensations from the begging for love, the hard-core-in-your-face of truth denied or the dreamy allure of pure seduction.

The first CD “100%” (released in 2009) joined the play lists of various online and on-air radio stations worldwide and continue to receive positive feedback. The award winning 2nd CD “Original Sin” (released in August 2011) was launched to packed houses on two nights, allowing Carolyn Fe to establish her presence in the Canadian Blues scene, as her songs begin to get regular airplay on radio stations worldwide. Bad Taboo, their award winning 3rd album (released in May 2014) features a collaboration with Shun Kikuta on the title track. Mr. Kikuta was the guitarist for Queen of the Blues, Ms. Koko Taylor and dubbed “The Asian BB King” by BB King himself. He left Chicago and now resides in Asia. Quebec's own Guy Bélanger adds his touch on the harmonica to two songs, “Life's Just That Good” and “Whole Lotsa Trouble”. The 3rd album, and second award, has definitely solidified Carolyn Fe’s place in the Blues world with her songs on regular rotation worldwide.

The 4th album, to be launched in 2017, is on its way with melodies and lyrics that deeply resonates with Carolyn Fe and the new members of the band. One thing is for sure, staying true to herself, Carolyn Fe continues to push the limits of the blues as she defines it.  Stay tuned...
