Give us a little bit more about you.
It was inevitable Carly Lind would become a performance artist. Born to a Father with an eclectic ear for music and a love for the arts, Carly’s path to singer-songwriter was paved with the albums of everyone from Mel Torme and Billy Holiday to Led Zeppelin and The Cranberries. Initially though, it was Carly’s Mother, a trained dancer, that awakened and Inspired Carly’s inner performer. For most people, dreams are what occupy time when not pursuing goals. Carly has a way of making her dreams her goals, and then she achieves them. Berklee College of Music had always been a dream of Carly’s. And for good reason. Her class alone produced more talented and successful musicians than can be listed. Peer influence encouraged growth at a rate that was previously unfathomable. It was here, at Berklee, that Carly became a songwriter. One more vein of expression to compliment her skillset. Singer/Songwriter, Dancer, Musician, Performer, Artist. Carly’s infectious positivity and “can-do” attitude have allowed her to continue to develop and advance as a multifaceted artist. In her pursuit of global success, Carly has been Top-lining, songwriting, ghostwriting, producing, arranging, dancing, collaborating, performing, teaching, and learning from the biggest and best in their respective fields. All the while, becoming a prolific social media Influencer, garnering almost 170K followers across a multitude of platforms. She recently performed at Kanye West’s Sunday Service, and had a critically acclaimed performance at VidCon. Carly’s current focus is completing the writing and recording of a 5-track EP with each song representing one of the five stages of grief. A project intended to not only aid her own healing process, but more importantly, aid others in their time of need, illuminating the grief process, and showing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Are you signed?
You have a brand new single ‘Crying In Public’ is out, tell us more about it.
I wrote Crying in Public with a very good friend, Brittney Spencer, who I met when I did The Voice Season 13. Her & I were roommates and I remember sitting in our room talking about my mother dying. I mentioned how I hate crying in front of people. that I would rather be alone, and it’s hard for me to be vulnerable, but with grief sometimes your wave of sadness comes at the most random times and it’s uncontrollable. She called me and said she had a chorus we could work on and Crying in Public happened. Whether I start crying in the car, the grocery store, randomly at work, I just have to accept it and embrace grief.

I’m working on a new single for the end of May, beginning of June and also finishing up some more collabs with my friend Zaa who I’ve worked with in the past. New merch will be out by the summer & I’m just trying to get my stuff out as much as possible.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
