Hey Carly!! Where did your love of music come from?
My dad had a massive record collection and my parents were always playing music. My mom put me into dance at age 3 and I think whether it was dancing to a beat or writing a melody, music just took me away to a peaceful place in my head. My parents sort of had a toxic relationship, so music was just my way of escaping from my reality.
Can you tell us what your newest release “No One” means to you?
It’s honestly about how alone & isolated I felt when both my parents died. I was driving home when I thought of “no one is losing sleep over me,” because I was thinking of how unconditional a parent’s love is and how I may never experience that ever again. I was just being real with myself, recognizing those feelings.
What’s been your reaction to your fans’ support for “No One”?
Honestly, I’m always surprised even if 2 people play the song. It took me a little to get out of my shell & be ok with truly being this vulnerable with my music, and it seems like it’s paying off. I’ve never released something this stripped, and I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback about how simple and “songwriter” it is.
What do you hope your supporters take away from this powerful new single?
I honestly just want to help take people to a safe place in their emotions where they feel they can recognize some stuff they may have not known was there. So with this one, just knowing that feeling alone is a thing, and it’s ok to feel that way, to maybe need someone here and & there.
Do you have any other release plans for summer 2020?
I just finished a song I wrote a few years ago, but finally had someone produce around it and it’s with one of my fav collaborators, Zaa! It’s a progressive dance track with a airy vibe, super excited to release it into the world.
How do you want your relationship to be like with your supporters?
I honestly love that social media is a thing and can help you get to know your fans even more now. The community of a fan base is so cool to me, and can be so powerful.
What’s something your fans don’t know about you?
I’m an introvert. My content screams bubbly personality and vibrant person, but when I’m “on” I’m on, and when I’m not…I’m at home recharging LOL!
What do you want your fans to know if they ever see you in public?
Always down to meet them.
What do you want your message to be towards your fans? What do you want your fans to take away from your music and shows?
I’ve always just wanted to provide a safe place for people to either, access emotions, or escape their problems and reality for a moment in time. Music was something that saved my life growing up, with a difficult upbringing, it was one of the only stable things in my life, and I just want to give that back into the world as well.
What’s one word you would use to describe what your fans have allowed you to accomplish?
Is there anyone in the music business you are dying to meet?
Lou Bell, Post Malone, DeadMau5, Max Martin, Nero, Robert Plant
Why do you think social media is so important for artists like yourself?
Social Media is a FREE platform/s that helps artists like me, that don’t have a publishing deal or major record deal to promote their art, hone their craft, and build a solid fan base. It takes time and energy, but I have so much control over what I want to put out and it’s honestly so awesome.
What would you say is your biggest dream/goal right now?
I really would love to land a song on a major playlist for Spotify and also just continue to put out music consistently.
Any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I LOVE YOU. Sometimes I feel like quitting, but then I get dms about you all listening to my music and story and it’s what keeps me going.
Thank you for taking the time to do this interview with us 🙂
