B.C.-based singer-songwriter Carly Thomas is the epitome of a worldly person: she's lived everywhere from Argentina and France to Thailand and Canada.
And it shows. Thomas brings her experience to all of her songs, offering listeners her words of wisdom through heartfelt lyrics and beautiful acoustic guitar lines.
Her strong, clear voice is always thick with emotion, which adds to both the sincerity and beauty of her soft indie folk songs. Her tunes drip with truthfulness, as she isn't afraid to expose her heart in order to help her listeners mend theirs.
Carly takes what she learned from growing up with folk music and adds her own poetic spin to it. With her earthy voice and raw lyrics, her sound is soulful and unique.
Thomas recently released her sophomore album, Up This High (2010), a long awaited follow up to her Debut Album, Distance, which was released in 2003. With earthy undertones and honest lyrics, the disc will likely have you wanting more. A welcome change from the typical, but with a voice which is easy to relate to, she has that something which makes folk-ish music interesting and intelligent.
