Carly Black/A Touch of Black / Bio

Carly Black began sharing her music around Birmingham, AL about 8 years ago. Carly’s sound and style have been compared to the likes of Janis Joplin, Jewel and Stevie Nicks & Grace Slick. Carly delivers soulful, indie-inspired, blues-infused rock vocals that are powerful and lyrics that are deep and profound. Carly has been performing since a very early age. Through the years, Carly has been involved in several collaborations. She is currently working on solo/duo projects as well as developing her new band, A Touch of Black. The core element of ATOB is Carly and her lead guitarist, Bobby Abernathy. Bobby grew up in Tennessee and has been playing the guitar since he could hold one. Carly met Bobby about three years ago in Pell City, AL. From then on they have been perfecting Carly’s original music and also writing new songs together and creating a new sound. This new sound is developing as quickly as the band itself! The band now includes Tim Kelly on bass and George Griffin on drums. Most all members are multi-instrumentalists! The recording process for Carly and her self-titled CD is now complete. The official CD Release date was March 2, 2013!!! The project was produced by Ben Trexel and his company, Tangent Music Group. She has also released two singles. Currently, however, the full band (ATOB) is in process of completing their first album! Tony Wachter is the master mind behing this project! A Touch Of Black is really coming together and looks so forward to entertaining you in the future!
