Local 518 singer-songwriter, Carmen Lookshire tells us she has an old soul, and she loves the music of the 30s and 40s. Her sound and style may belie that, but in this session, we'll hear her sing Chris Wienk's favorite song a cappella. Plus, she sings an old Nat "King" Cole song. In addition, we hear the song she and Kenyan pop reggae singer Mtu Saba worked on together called "Don't Ask Mommy Why."
The email we received in the wee hours of July 7th, 2017 read as follows:
Hello WEXT Friends!
The Super Secret 518 crew is a small, anonymous squad of local musicians who decided to organize a surprise compilation of Local 518 covers performed by other Local 518 performers. We figured there'd be no better way to thank you for your crucial role in the community than to pay tribute to this community in song.
