September 13th 2013 was Carly Howard’s Album launch for Overgrown at Sidewalk Café in the East Village.Overgrown is Carly Howard’s debut album, an album I was lucky enough to record cello on. Her sounds is beautifully folky interwoven nature themed fairytale. I’ve been playing with Carly Howard at live gigs since April and am looking forward to the official Overgrown release.
Since working with Carly Howard as well as music producer and Under the Greenwood Tree writer/director Tyler Phillips I began exploring my own style of songwriting and music performance. On September 13th I had the opportunity to open for Carly Howard with my very own set, 4 original songs and 3 covers. I played the cello pick-uped and in a looping device with my own vocals on top. With the help of Kendra Jo Brook on violin, Bethany Taylor on trumpet and Carly Howard on ukulele and harmonies, it was truly a dream experience, and have future gigs already lined up!
Carly Howard’s album is available on Spotify and iTunes.
