Carly learnt the guitar solo to Eric Clapton’s ‘Wonderful Tonight’ when she was ten. Soon after, she wrote her first song ‘Dear Sir John: Can Dreamers Dream in Heaven’, a letter to John Lennon. She grew up writing and learning songs, including a lot of seventies rock and (bizarrely), a lot of piano songs of the comic genius Victoria Wood. Carly then got a music degree, wrote a symphony and won a composition prize. After a few years of immersing herself in Brighton’s music scene, during which time she self-released three studio albums, Carly went to Paris. There she met Nadéah, a singer with whom Carly toured Europe Brazil and Australia. Just before that, she recorded her fourth live studio album in London, in twelve days from start to finish, with renowned Danish producer, Nikolaj Bjerre. The album features Diogenes Baptisttella (pictured), a Brazilian boy, who grew up working after school everyday in the family pet shop and badly needing some escapism from reality; this came in the form of a guitar...he soon learnt every skill he could, the main reason being that he did NOT want to end up running the shop! Carly and Diogenes recognised the same obsessional qualities and musical tastes in each other and fell in love (musically speaking, that is). Now they gig and write together in a hard-core way. Carly has also started to be joined by new musicians, most notably Clément Amirault and Christophe Millot of Babylon Circus fame, playing trombone, tuba, bass clarinet and accordion, making for an intriguing new sound.
