Album Notes
Carla Holden represents a new style of singer songwriter. Her imaginative take on pop music is exactly what is missing in today's musical climate. Inventive lyrics, unique song arrangements, and an expressive voice that goes from vulnerable to playful all within a 3 minute song.

Born and raised in Carson CA, Carla attended private catholic schools her entire life and went on to college like a good little girl. A year into college Carla knew there had to be life outside of the world she was in. Her big dream was to move to Hollywood and become a major rock star. She quit her crappy job, dropped out of college, and packed her bags.

Carla began studying vocals, piano, and guitar but eventually decided to move to New York to focus on her songwriting. 6 months later she returned with enough material to record her first CD. Carla possesses
that alluring quality which captivates and holds everyone's attention in the room. She has that ever illusive "it" that all stars have.

Her versatility and unique style set her apart from other female singers. From beat boxing to scatting, her self produced CD showcases her eclectic upbeat style. With influences ranging from Blondie to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Run DMC.

Carla has been invited to perform with many of today's up and coming recording artists such as Sheila Nicholls, Charlotte Martin, Mia Doi Todd, and Lili Haydn. She has
performed at prestigious Los Angeles venues The El Rey Theatre, The Knitting Factory, The Palace, and The Viper Room. This one woman powerhouse is on her way to the top.

My New Favorite Singer!
I cannot compare Carla Holden's voice or style to anyone. She is that original and unique. Your live show is soo amazing and I am forever a fan now!

Tom Hofer

Didn't know what I was getting into!
I met Carla through a songwriting class and discovered her CD here on CDBaby. Awesome stuff, right from the start. Her songs have been in my head every day since (it's been three weeks now) except for when that new Ozomatli song takes over. Suspense & Dinosaur especially kick butt - she's a terrific blend of No Doubt meets Kate Bush with some Abby Travis or Shivaree tossed in to kick it up a notch. Talented, versatile gal. Three thumbs up.

Craig H.

She is the best!
This cd is awsome! Carla has that raw talent that only a few artist today have. My favorite track has to be "better days" I have listened to that song over and over, it made me cry the first time I heard it. A live performance that I saw in San Jose, Ca. blew me away! Her voice had me and everyone else at the club in a trance, it was amazing. Carla Holden is going straight to the top! Love You Girl!

Emotionally Stimulateing!
Carla Holden is for real. Wake Up And Love Me rocks form start to finish. From the sweet sounds of Running Away to the all out rock of What You Want there is not a bad song on this emotional roller coaster. Get a copy and hear it for yourself. Thank you Judy for turning me on to this.
