    “New singer Carly Johnson is a revelation—versatile, tuneful, and with an emo- tional range that floats from first-person intimate to brassy belting with the greatest of ease.” - Jacob Duncan Liberation Prophecy

    “...the sort of voice that can rile listeners into fiery elation, or ease them into a blue velvet-lined dream.” - Lara Kinne LEO Weekly

    After receiving her bachelor's degree in music from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2007, Carly returned home to Louisville and started performing as a jazz vocal/guitar duo with critically acclaimed guitarist Craig Wagner. They re- leased their first album “It’s Pretty Standard” and in the same year the duo re- ceived the 2014 Louisville Music Award for Jazz Artist of the Year.

    Playing frequently around Louisville’s clubs and intimate venues as a jazz duo, Carly also began to lend her voice to Louisville’s vast rock scene. In 2010, Carly recorded with My Morning Jacket on the track “Holding On To Black Metal” from their 2011 Grammy nominated album “Circuital”. She also joined local rockers Workers to perform and record their 2012 digital & LP release of “Both Hands” on Louisville’s sonaBlast! Records. Also in 2012, Carly joined the 7-piece jazz-folk fu- sion band Liberation Prophecy led by saxophonist Jacob Duncan. May 2013 saw the debut of Liberation Prophecy’s record “Invisible House” and a release show at the legendary Blue Note jazz club in NYC. On the band’s web series Liberation Living Room, Carly was able to perform with several guest musicians, including Ben Sollee, Will Oldham, Rachel Grimes, Tyrone Cotton, and Norah Jones. In 2015, Carly pooled her musical talent and growing local celebrity to form the Louisville-based I Heart, Heart tribute band, playing shows to raise funds for trail- blazing charities and organizations that continually give back within the Louisville community and beyond.

    “Ever since I was a little girl...” is not just the opening phrase of Carly Johnson’s upcoming record...the path Carly carved for herself has been clear from the start. Fusing her musical education with her love and reverence for rock, soul, and pop music, her debut solo album “Pink & Gold” is the summation of a dream. A dream filled with soul, with jazz, with R&B. Think Nina Simonecrooning alongside Veruca Salt’s wailing guitars. Think Whitney Houston and Joni Mitchell with unwavering Motown backup singers and in-pocket percussion. And horns. Think Etta James meets meets Ann Wilson meets Amy Winehouse. That the album was cowritten long-distance with close friend and college roommate, San Diego musi- cian Charlotte Littlehales, is a testament to the dedication and hunger poured into each note and a tribute to the strong women musicians that came before. Ever since she was a little girl...Carly has been waiting for this release.
