Singer-songwriter Carina’s debut as a recording artist is the harvest of the hard work she has put in while developing her original music. In addition to pursuing her own recording and performing career, Carina is a teacher at, as well as a co-founder (at age 13!) of Pop Star Kids USA, a successful elite training and management center for developing youth artists. She is committed - and essential - to the school as well as to the development of its students.
Her premier CD, “July 28”, a 5-song EP of her original work, was released on July 28, 2016, accompanied by digital downloads of individual tracks and the full EP. Downloads were selling worldwide on iTunes, Spotify, CDBaby, Amazon, Google Play, and other sites prior to the release date. First day sales put her in the Top 100 on Amazon for all pop sales.
"Carina has a unique sound that is fresh and progressive. Give her a listen and fall in love with her like I have. She's a star!"
- Greg Kodiak, DJ, CBS Radio - KNCI 105.1 FM
Already known and admired as a performer in the Seattle area, Carina’s CD release heralds new opportunities, new challenges, and new promise for this emerging artist.
Plans include a West Coast tour and the completion of recording another six songs for the release of a full-length album in late 2016.
Carina’s tastes in music are, she says, “eclectic and broad,” a fact exemplified by her citation of influences that include among them Ray LaMontagne, Etta James, Gavin DeGraw, John Mayer, and Joss Stone.
