Hailing from the Prince George’s County/Washington, DC /Baltimore region, vocalist, producer and ├╝ber smart chick Carolyn Malachi’s introduces music lovers to "Revenge of the Smart Chicks II: Ambitious Gods." She calls her brand of music "haute eclectic soular blues." Malachi, who is the great-granddaughter of legendary jazz pianist John Malachi, has created her own modern infectious gumbo of jazz, hip hop, and spoken word. ROTSC II is the stirring and genre bending follow-up to her 2008 debut "Revenge of the Smart Chicks." The first project spawned a movement, blog and the non-profit Smart Chicks Inc. The organization is dedicated to developing visibility and leadership opportunities for women in the arts.

Carolyn is currently a resident artist at BloomBars, a community arts space in Washington, DC.and the recent recipient of the Maryland State Arts Council 2010 Individual Artist Award.
