Aside from a very short lived foray into dancing, which turned out to be not so graceful, music has always been the love of Carly’s life. She started out playing piano and flute for the school band when she was 9 years old, continuing as part of the school ensemble until she moved to California at the age of 15 and decided she wanted to sing.
It was a great idea.
Carly couldn’t sing.
So she opted out of marching band and instead joined the choir. Or so she thought. Unbeknownst to Carly at the time, she had actually signed up for the handbell choir instead of the vocal class.
After a year playing handbells Carly finally joined the real choir and has been writing music and singing ever since.
At 21 she joined the Atlanta based indie band Kenotia and went on to sign to Sumerian Records and record their debut album “You’ve Dug Your Grave, Now Lie In It”. Four songs from the album were featured on MTV’s “The Hills”. Since the end of Kenotia, Carly has been working hard on honing her songwriting skills and released her first single “Crossroads’ as a solo artist in “Crossroads” is available on iTunes and most other streaming platforms.
After many amazing, albeit broke, years of pursuing original music, Carly moved to Philadelphia and formed the party band The Jump Off in 2013. Since the formation of the group, they quickly made a name for themselves on the highly competitive cover band circuit and have played many of the biggest rooms up and down the east coast.
