'Lo Carmen was discovered at sixteen working in a Kings Cross pizza bar and cast in the seminal Australian film The Year My Voice Broke, for which she was nominated for an AFI award. Lo has lived a bigger life than most. From being backstage at Rolling Stones concerts when she was a baby to writing her first song at eight; performing an original song onstage at nine; having a baby while barely out of her teens; forming her first band at twenty one; touring Europe independently, funds or a safety net; all the while making music her life and her art. In all this, Lo has been inspired by a handful of women – all icons, one way or another, of modern Australian life.' (Source : Lovers Dreamers Fighters blurb)
