My name is Carla Wainwright and my stage name is Carla May. I live in Doncaster and love to sing. I have been singing since I can remember but only started singing seriously in 2010, when I began to take lessons with Georgina Hill-Brown of Vocaltutor, Georgina who then became my manager. I then went on to work with an independent record label which I later decided to move away from so I could self manage.
My dream isn’t to be a famous star (although if that happened it would be amazing) all I want to do is sing. I definitely want a career in music. I have a supportive family and friends and I wouldn’t be able to do this without them.
I am now regularly out gigging and entering competitions. I started doing a few gigs now and again performing 2 or 3 songs, now it’s 30 min sets, 45 min sets 1.5 hour sets and performing at bigger venues and events,its amazing and it just seems to get better and better.
I then went on to work in a studio in London with Benny D who has worked with a lot of major artists. A few of those artists include: Paloma Faith, Lana Del Rey, Ed Sheeran and many more. With Powerstudio's i created a re mastered cover of man with a child in his eyes by Kate Bush (link to song below) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbVVf6WL-r0
I am auditioning for The Voice 2014 on the 18th of July 2013.
