Carlitta Durand was ready to take the music scene by storm. With features on Little Brother’s critically acclaimed 2007 album Getback, assists handed to soul singer Zo! on his underrated Sunstorm album and contributing to Phonte’s efforts lifted her already burgeoning profile. Suffice it to say, this young woman was making a name for herself in every sector of music. However, she suddenly disappeared from her burgeoning spotlight as she took time away to have her first child and know what it meant to be a mother. Fast forward to 2015 and the Minnesota native is back with a new album, I’ll Be Gorgeous When I Die (IBGWID), and a mission to astound you once again with her talent and presence of voice.
IBGWID is an album that comes from the heart, as all great R&B albums are, recording Carlitta’s progression through life filled with love, joy, intimacy, disappointment and even divorce. With production handled by Flash Frequency, Vaughn Garcia of M1 Platoon and Abjo among others, makes you really feel these chapters of her life to this point. With her presence and resonate voice, Carlitta Durand will certainly be an artist worth watching out for.
