Carly Tefft / Bio

At just 20, Carly Tefft, “The singer-songwriter phenomenon from Cape Cod,” as stated by The Boston Globe has hit the ground running, releasing her sophomore album “Tell It All”, recorded at the renowned Darkhorse Studios (Nashville, TN). Tracks are receiving continued airplay on MA stations such as 101.9’s The Cheap Seats an 95.9 WATD. A nominee for “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” by Limelight Magazine Awards, Tefft has also been named as Cape Cod Magazine’s “People to Watch 2013.” Her fan base has proved to be loyal by helping her win the online fan voted Tyler Ward Opening Act Contest and Gavin DeGraw Cover Contest sponsored by Gigg.com.

As a singer/song writer, Tefft creates an alternative sound all her own. She refuses to settle on one genre and writes with her blend of folk, rock, and pop-a la Carole King, Grace Potter, and Sheryl Crow. Her recent resume of performances include the Bluebird Café (Nashville,TN) as well as Club Passim (Cambridge, MA). She has shared the stage with Tyler Ward, Entrain, Kingsfoil, and Jillian Jensen. Her first independent studio EP, “Loud and Clear,” was released in March 2012 on iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby, and Amazon.com Her songs have hit many Massachusetts airwaves such as MIX104.1fm, 95.9fm WATD, 92.7fm WMVY, 101.9 WCIB “The Cheap Seats." Tefft has also had in-studio performances at 92.9WBOS, FUN107fm, and WATD 95.9fm. In a recent review, Kathleen Szmit of The Barnstable Patriot says, “an album that could easily hold its own against the likes of Gwen Stefani, Hayley Williams, Sara Bareilles and, yes, Taylor Swift."

Music lovers can expect a soulful and energetic performance, no matter the venue, solo and with her band as shown at her recent series of performances from Massachusetts and Nashville to Rhode Island and Pittsburgh. If the Berklee College of Music student's honest lyrics, full voice and rhythmic guitar skills don't grab your attention, her red hair just might.

Carly message in her second album, “Tell It All” is simply about honesty: “I've found this reoccurring theme; we hold back our beliefs, in order to protect a person, a situation or ourselves. I've held back my feelings for some of those reasons, but writing these songs has taught me honesty is one of the greatest qualities a person can posses. I hope you will explore the honesty in the lyrics, find memories in the melodies and enjoy the experiential ride that "Tell It All" will take you on.” - Carly
