About Consuelo Vanderbilt:
Most recently appearing in an exclusive article in “Elysian Magazine,” Consuelo Vanderbilt was listed as one of
the most influential and inspirational women in New York City today. The American singer, composer,
songwriter, actress, spokesmodel, entrepreneur and philanthropist was born in New York and is a maternal
descendant of the legendary Vanderbilt family. Delving into the arts at a young age, she has been a fierce
presence in the industry for decades.
Carving her own path through her ventures in music and business, she has been featured in “Vogue,” “Town &
Country,” “Paper,” just to name a few that highlighted her many accomplishments. As a successful musician,
Consuelo has performed around the world and shared stages with such music luminaries as Vanessa Carlton,
Mya and Joe Cocker. She landed her first record deal at the age of 21, and later, founded her own record label
C&R Productions in 2010.
Shortly thereafter, her first four singles landed her in the Top 20 on the Billboard Dance Charts. Her debut
single “Naked” spent 16 weeks on the charts, while her follow-up “Feel So Alive” earned her Billboard’s #2
