Hi Carli! Thank you for speaking with me today!
Hey! Thank you for having me.
You are working on a new project, correct? Will you tell us about it?
Yes, I am! I have a new single called 'Fade Away' that's out on August 20th. I'm super excited about it. We played around with some different sounds this time so it's a different flavor than my last EP (which you should also check out). It definitely has more of a dance-pop feel to it than the last records. I'm also working on some more surprises so stay tuned for that! I wrote 'Fade Away' about how when we were kids we had all of these big dreams and we believed anything was possible. But more often than not, as adults, we let those dreams fade away due to various reasons. It's a reminder to myself and others to never give up or let anybody tell you your dreams can't become reality! You never know what the future may hold and believing in that will ultimately draw those opportunities towards you. Keep going!
How would you describe your work to someone at a dinner party that’s never heard it?
It's always so hard to describe my own music since there are so many influences that brought it forth. But if I had to generalize to somebody at a dinner party I'd tell them it falls along the lines of 80's synth-pop/soft rock.
What is your dream project? My dream project would be to collaborate with Stevie Nicks on a song for my album! Working with her in any capacity would be a dream come true for me. I can't sing her praises enough; she's a legend.
What are you most proud of to date?
I am most proud of the fact that I keep learning, growing, and making music that is a reflection of where my heart is at in the moment. I'm proud that I have continued to persevere and reach for the stars!
What keeps you making music?
Honestly, I just can't see myself doing anything else. Not only is it a beautiful outlet to channel my thoughts and feelings... But I love it and I feel called to continue on this journey and see where it takes me. The future is bright!
Please let everyone know where they can keep up with you and your music!
Sure! You can find me on any of these platforms. Make sure you check out my latest single, 'Fade Away,' as well as my EP's, 'Unconditionally Myself' and 'Soul Searching'. Feel free to follow me on any and all of my platforms. Join me on my journey!
