After releasing the critically acclaimed and sweet-sounding album Free five years ago, Carmen Rodgers, the lyrical psychologist who turns happiness and heartache into melody, is back and better than ever. The sound? Beautiful. Bitter. But this time, not so sweet. The Bitter Suite, part one of Carmen's highly anticipated sophomore album, was recently released to rave reviews worldwide. Similar to her debut album, the melodramatic EP aims to dazzle listeners with a captivating and compelling R&B, Jazz and Neo-Soul mix. Yet unlike the first album, she aims to pleasantly surprise listeners with a sound different than the expected.
