One way or another, you’ll agree with me: “Just What The Doctor Ordered”, one of the new tracks of singer/songwriter and actress Carmen Perez, is exactly what the title said it would be. And the best part: it’s prescription free.
Carmen Perez is a Jill of all trades. There’s not very much she hasn’t done already: being a former full time US military member, she’s now into acting, singing, modeling, painting… and I’m pretty sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Seeing her music videos and hearing this beautiful woman sing, it hit me right away: everything about her seems to be labeled with “DETERMINATION” in capital letters. She doesn’t hide anything – if she wants to do it, I guess there’s no stopping her from doing it. Confidence is one big part of the artist’s cake, and she brings a lot of it to the table.
“Just What The Doctor Ordered” is one of the tracks off her new EP “Space Girl” available on all major media sources. Backed by a low synth line, the stage is all hers to fire away those razor sharp bittersweet vocals. Those can change instantly from sassy to innocent. In other words: she can go from “sweet kitten mode” to “wtf mode” like flicking a switch. This versatility of Perez’ singing skills combined with a solid production crew (who did an outstanding job in putting all the tracks together, upgrading the songs of the EP with the right amount of doubled and pitched vocals and some defensive effects and some great synths (best ones by far: the one used in this track, and the slightly distorted ones, like the one in “He Killed Me (But I Didn’t Die)“.) is a guarantee to get many eyebrows raised out there. Giving the other tracks off her EP a listen, I noticed that she is not confined to one single genre. She is comfortable within mainstream pop, latin, reggae, even almost classical tunes… I guess she’s going by the rule “if it feels right, it IS right” – and I love that in an artist. It’s one of the main ingredients to develop your signature sound.
To sum it up: Perez has skills, a huge load of confidence and an awesome amount of creativity which is packed in every song she releases. This in addition with the momentum she’s gaining right now through all of her work is just an irresistible musical combination. She is producing mainstream medicine for the audience. Just what the doctor ordered.
