Carmen Gloria Pérez

Best Jazz EP Nominated Artist CARMEN GLORIA brings to you "The Art Of Love"

About Me

Carmen Gloria Pérez was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, now a veteran, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Government and International Politics from George Mason University. She was born in The Bronx, New York and moved to Puerto Rico at the age of ten. She is a member of SCBWI and is a writer, artist, award-winning actress, (experimental) short film writer/director, and even co-wrote two songs in the Billboard Dance and UK Pop charts (Emergency & Overload, as Carmen Perez). Her most recent music EP “The Art Of Love” was nominated Best Jazz EP by the Independent Music Awards 2019 and received wonderful reviews by The Smooth Jazz Ride & Jazz Reloaded blogs. “Pajarito,” a piece she co- composed with late British producer Matt Powell, is also featured in the Café Del Mar ~ Dreams 9 album. After moving to Norway in 2017, she decided to focus on writing and continue creating art. She launched her first children’s picture book series (Kid Astronomy) as an author and illustrator, in which the first book “Thank You Mercury” made the Best New Space Books 2019 list by Book Authority.

My Jazz Story

I love jazz because it has always connected me to truth. I was first exposed to jazz as a child when dad really appreciated latin jazz and was a bass player for some popular salsa bands in the 80's and 90's.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
