Im Carina, a singer/songwriter from Sweden. Ive just started my own company,
so that I can work with my music full-time. I just love it!
Apart from music, I like to travel, hang out with family and friends, movies, Xbox... When theres time left!
But when I got a minute to spare I usually end up by the piano anyway, writing a new song..
I live with my partner Mikael and our twin daughters My & Isabel (3years old) here in Sweden.
Ive played the piano since I was 5, Ive been singing as long as I can remember.
Ive always been singing on school- and community-events, weddings, infant baptism and funerals.
I wrote my first song when I was 12.. and in 1994 I started to write songs/music for my first demo.
My inspiration/influences comes from everything and anything that makes me stop, think, or in some way react.. something that touch my heart. It can be a feeling, something from the newspaper, a situation or just one of my own ordinary days! My idols are; Metallica, Bob Seger, Creed and Elton John.
Im booked for some local appearances this summer.
Ive submitted to different festivals both in Sweden and the US, waiting for reply.
NOW! and UP-COMING:
* A new recording in Nashville will take place in May.
* Ive just recorded three new songs in "radio-quality", Im done with the demos! Ready for the next step..
* Ive been asked from different Record Labels to send my cd! Waiting for feedback.
* Ive submitted to some of the music-festivals in Sweden and USA.
* I was one of the "Top Five" in October, in "SongwriterUniverse-Best Song Of The Month"
* "Runner Up" in "Song Of The Year".
* Im going to record a new demo. Some recordcompanies have asked for more material!!
* Ive been on a "Summer-Tour" with a troubadour. And after that Ive had some local-appearance on my own, song & piano (may-sept/2004).
So far Ive only performed to singback (live song to recorded music) and a few times with a band. I dont have my own yet.. looking for one!
Metallica, Bob Seger, Creed and Elton John.
