Back in May, after making it to the live shows on the debut season of The Voice of Australia, we learnt that audition stand-out Carmen Smith had been disqualified from the competition, allegedly for having an unfair advantage over the fellow finalists by being featured on one of Guy Sebastian's (XF Au judge) videos. That didn't stop the soul lady though. Her debut EP, "They Don't Know Me" is already out. It's actually been out for a while, since August 24, and honestly, I forgot about posting this underrated gem when I first saw it. Either way, the EP is probably not what you were expecting from her. "They Don't Know Me" is a funky, uber stylish, uptempo soulful debut, proving that there’s more to Carmen than the soulful performances she gave us on The Voice. Her quirky debut didn't chart on the ARIA charts but that doesn't really matter as long as she keeps giving us more material like this and if she stays true true to herself, she's on the right path.
