Professional VO Artist and Vocalist of nearly 20 years. Skilled in Top-Line Writing, Providing Lead Vocals, Background Vocals, and Vocal Production. I am from Nashville, but am now based out of New York City performing at local venues as well as writing and producing from home<3
I have been behind the microphone since I was 6 years old, doing VO work for Kidz Bop, Build-A-Bear, and PBS. Growing up I took part in theater, choir and a cappella - I was drawn to the textures that harmonies and vocal technique could add to a live or studio production. Later I went on to get 3 years of classical vocal training under my belt.
Since then, I have pivoted to Pop Vocal production. Much of my background in choir-related activities is something I have carried with me in my approach to drafting vocal stacking, BGVs and lead vocals.
What I offer:
Top Line Writing
Lead Vocals (for originals or covers)
Vocal Arrangements for Backing Vocals

Carlie was a dream to work with. She knew exactly what I was going for and not only wrote the perfect song but gave an incredible vocal performance with all the backing vocals we needed to elevate the track. Communication was flawless and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Thanks Carlie!
Carlie is an incredible topline writer and vocalist! She has an impeccable ear for hooks, harmony and arrangement. I've been lucky enough to work with her on many songs over the past few years and she continually steps up her writing and production to new heights. She's very detail oriented and meticulous with each moment of instrumentation, melody, and writing. Very clear communication throughout the project and always a blast to collaborate with. Highly recommend working with Carlie!
Carlie is a great vocalist! She is a very reliable and always finishes her vocal tracking & production on time. Reliability is huge in this industry and that is never something I have worried about when working with Carlie.
She brings her own flare to tracks and is able to deliver exactly what you hear in your head or riff on and modify an existing part. Her versatility alone makes her an asset for any lead, backing, or choral vocal. She is also a talented songwriter herself so any creative input she provides regularly elevates songs and formative ideas.
I highly recommend Carlie!
