I am pretty excited to announce that i will be pursuing my music career under my own name once again and relaunching under the Tom Carty brand after 3 years of performing with and as a band. I will be continuing to perform with my band. However, playing under my own name feels much more organic and as they say, you’ve got to go with your heart.
As soon as i had made my decision to return to my solo career in May i went and booked a trip to the USA. I am now in LA and loving every minute of this incredible country. On Friday night i played my first gig with Aussie actors/musicians ‘The Budgie Smugglers’ in West Hollywood and again on Saturday night for the ‘Misstresses’ TV series wrap party.
I was also privileged to meet and chat extensively with Clarence Jay, an Australian born producer of Sri Lankan heritage who produced the Youtube acclaimed send-up ‘Friday’ performed by Rebecca Black along with the music for the ‘Discovery Kids’ Animation Series. I will be joining him this weekend for a jam and writing session.
I look forward to updating you all again next week!
