"There are two types of artists in the world. Those like myself who have made a living with it all their lives, and those who, for whatever reasons, choose not to take that path. Among these "non-pros", there can often be found some of the greatest music you've never heard. I specialize in producing these artists. I believe that just because someone doesn't have millions of fans doesn't affect their voice or their validity to the industry or the world. These artists have something very important and lasting to say. Carla is one of those artists. Her voice and her writing is a study in purity, and somehow innocence, tho her life experience is vast. I compare her to the old masters, the ones who sang without frills and refused to hide behind anything. She just comes right out and sings it like it is......"
