CARMEN SMITH & DIANA ROUVAS - TWO VOICES, ONE FRIENDSHIP ANNOUNCE THREE EXTRA SYDNEY SHOWS
The talented duo will play in Cronulla, Coogee and Bulli where audiences will have the chance to hear every nuance of the girls’ voices. Carmen and Diana will perform separate acoustic sets before coming together for an encore set sure to impress.
Carmen is a versatile and engaging act who not only writes, produces, dances and performs her own material but she has done the same for many other successful Aussie artists. Her vocals have been featured on the records of Diesel and Thirsty Merc in addition to Guy Sebastian, and she has just released her brand new single ‘They Don’t Know Me’ on iTunes.
Diana has been singing the Sydney soul circuit for years now. The pint-sized singer with a dynamite voice loves playing late-night venues and bars to small audiences who appreciate the finer points of musicianship and the late hum and buzz of an after-hours lifestyle.
The two singers had only heard of one another through mutual friends - when they finally met on the set of The Voice it was like two old friends coming together. “It was like I had known her for years. I started singing one of her songs to her from her EP from a few years back – she flipped!” says Carmen. The feeling was mutual – Diana is a self-confessed massive fan of Carmen, a long time go-to girl for vocals and a strong independent artist.
Once on The Voice, Carmen and Diana both smashed it and were favourites of Team Joel and Team Keith. Although neither were victorious, the raw talent of both girls was recognised by Aussie audiences who haven’t forgotten about these girls in a hurry. What can audiences expect from these shows? “A whole lot of heart and soul,” say Carmen and Diana.
