Hailing from Albany, Carla cut her teeth playing solo shows from the age of 16. Relocating to Perth two years later, she released her first official single, ‘Greg’s Discount Chemist’ garnering over 500,000+ streams on Spotify with Triple J crowning Carla as their Unearthed Feature Artist of the Week. She subsequently embarked on her first national tour, a combination of shows supporting Lord Huron (US) and her own sold out headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney & Perth.
After earning rave reviews at the annual BIGSOUND conference in Brisbane, Carla toured with/supported the likes of Cat Power, Kurt Vile & Gareth Liddiard among others as well as performances at festivals such as Falls Festival & Laneway Festival.
Carla announced her signing to Remote Control/Dot Dash Recordings in February 2019, subsequently releasing a new single, ‘2001’ which was placed into rotation on Triple J and praised by Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music. A rapturously received national tour followed, resulting in ‘2001’ claiming the #1 spot on the AMRAP Australian Community Radio Charts.
She released her debut EP in June 2019 and following her huge Grand Prize Win at the 2019 WAM Song of the Year Awards and completing her debut North American tour in support of San Cisco, Carla embarked on a sell-out national headline tour of Australia in support of her EP before preparing to record her debut album and touring nationally with Holy Holy from September-November.
2020 will see the release of Carla’s debut album aided by extensive national/international touring, further solidifying her as one of Australia’s most exciting up and coming artists.
