Carly Pearl is no stranger to performing — now, though, she’s truly taking center stage.
With an extensive background in theater, acting, and music, including fronting the national touring act The Scruffy Pearls, the New York-based artist is a successful multi-hyphenate who understands what it truly means to be a performer. She’s using her technical background to propel herself to the next level, and this era is one in which she’s fully taken control of her narrative.
With vocals that recall Amy Winehouse and Macy Gray, Carly Pearl captures the listener’s attention from the first notes of a track. Her heartfelt, thoughtful lyrics subvert expectations through a jazzy, sometimes hip-hop inspired lens.
Carly Pearl sees the synchronicities in all of us as people, and allows this perspective to impact her as a creative. If this time in her life is about finding herself as an individual and working as a solo artist rather than as she did previously in a band, then there are some constants she wants to run through her storytelling — the goal is to leave listeners feeling empowered, hopeful, understood, and connected.
As a writer, she feels that the lyrics to her songs have always been stored inside of her, and she is finally letting them come out. Carly Pearl is falling in love with herself right now, and listeners are falling in love with her and her story, too. After years in her career spent playing a part, she’s now the one running the show.
