In an excerpt from her book she shared her thoughts on why this music continues to be important.

“My perception of the dance music industry was that the core of the industry was built upon real soulful people. People who meant it you know they didn’t do it because they got paid, they didn’t do it because somebody told em to. They did it because it was in them and I knew that wasn’t going to die anytime soon.

Carolyn Harding was born in Burderop Park, England to Robert and Della Harding. Carolyn is the oldest girl of four children. Her vocal career started in 1977, a student at Roosevelt High School, Roosevelt, Long Island. While busy doing community plays and concerts; Carolyn was discovered by a lady named Lori Butler. Lori became manager and took Carolyn under her wing and helped to develop the studio professionalism that Carolyn still maintains today.

This experience led to a production deal and the New York school of Theatrical Arts. Carolyn landed a job with Disney World, her first long term engagement away from home. Under the strict guidance of a very talented team of directors, stage managers, musicians, stylists, dancers and entertainment executives; Carolyn developed and grew into a well
polished performer.

Carolyn’s brother Ricky introduced her to Dance Music in 1986.
He was an original member of the famed Paradise Garage. As did many of the key players in dance music at that time, Ricky passed away in 1991. Ricky was my biggest fan. In his memory Carolyn vowed to have a dance record released every year. She has done that and more. Some producers include Winston Jones, Dave Shaw, Joey Negro, Seamus, Deep Zone, Soul Solution, FUKUTOMI, and Shinji Takeda among others. Carolyn has recorded for many of the top Dance Labels in the U.S. and abroad. Her records have climbed to the tops of numerous charts across the world. Some of her earlier works include background vocals for Sal Soul Orchestras, Jocelyn Brown, and Little Louis Vega to name a few.
In 2005 Carolyn recorded a few tracks for Randy Muller (Brass Construction/Plaza Records) and was featured on the well-known hit High, High, High.

In 2009 Carolyn celebrated a 25 year career in dance music with a book and CD release party in Ft. Lauderdale. The event took place during the winter music conference. The event was attended by some of the most talented artists, DJs, and producers in the industry today.  Some came from as far away as Austria and the U.K. determined not to miss the event.  The CD was produced and written with her brother B-Wise (Bobby), on Deep Haven Music. B-Wise and Carolyn's daughter Brittney sing background on the track "All Because Of You"
After more than 25years, Carolyn Harding remains a force to be reckoned with in the House Music industry.
