Catchy and instant, the music of bubbly pop duo ‘Carosel’ has a nicely retro charm and infectious feel good vibe to it. Michelle Phelan & Pete McGrane cherish melodies that linger in the mind. The lively rhythms and clear sounds of “Star,” “Something I Need,” “Easy” and “Take Me” are delicate and lighthearted like four soap bubbles that flutter. Think of Feist, Regina Spektor, Dionne Warwick or Lily Allen. (But Lily Allen without the sarcasm). The glamorous duo believes in the feeling of love and sings in the vein of entertainment!
Michelle Phelan & Pete McGrane are Irish, and history recalls that the duo formed ‘on stage’ in front of many witnesses. While Michelle attended a concert where Pete was performing, she was asked to join him on stage, for an impromptu rendition of the Al Green classic “Let’s Stay Together”.There was a magical catalysis and the audience was captivated, Carosel was born
Before this wonderful episode of fate, Michelle – from a small town south of Dublin – has much to dream of while listening to Burt Bacharach, The Carpenters and The Beatles on the jukebox in the dining room of the restaurant that her parents ran. As for Pete, a teenage rock bohemian, he discovered the guitar at school and went on to study classical and folk guitar styles. With the six-string slung over his shoulder, the years that followed took him to India and all over the world. Settling a while in Andalusia, he developed his guitar skills and harmonious melody that has nurtured Carosel’s beautiful arrangements.
They are touring and working on finishing off their 2nd album (yet to be titled).
NB. Michelle talks about her life in Paris and her passion for food in her nicely illustrated blog : www.greenteaandbiscuits.wordpress.com
