Carmen Townsend (born April 20 1977) is a Canadian rock singer-songwriter from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
Townsend's debut album, Waitin’ and Seein’ was released through ABC/ Universal in Australia on November 19, 2010. The album was recorded at Carriage House Studios and produced by Gordon Gano (Violent Femmes), Warren Bruleigh (Louise Attaque), and Darren Gallop (Company House Records) with mixing by Mike Fraser. All tracks on Waitin and Seein except for Start All Over (written by Jesse Harris) were written by Townsend. On January 25, 2011 the record was released in Canada on Company House Records/EMI immediately after which Townsend embarked on a cross-Canada tour supporting rock legends Heart.
Townsend tours with drummer Thomas Allen and bassist Shane O’Handley. During a recent tour, however, Allen broke his hand by punching a wall, and Steven Wilton took his place. All three musicians have also frequently toured and played with the Tom Fun Orchestra with Townsend herself featured on the nationally charting single, Watchmaker in 2008. She has also been featured on the Neil Young tribute album, Cinnamon Girl: Women Artists Cover Neil Young for Charity that was released on American Laundromat Records on February 12, 2008. Townsend was also featured in the award winning Canadian independent film, Just Buried. Townsend’s album Waitin’ and Seein’ is in rotation at CBC Radio 3 in Canada, and has been featured on Australian national radio (ABC).2011 Waitin And Seein (Company House/EMI)
