Carly Jo’s passion for music started when she was a child but grew wings when she received a guitar for her 16th birthday and began writing songs and performing in coffee shops in her hometown of Orlando. Writing songs with a maturity well beyond her years, she recorded her first CD at just 17. While in college in south Florida she continued performing and released her critically acclaimed coming-of-age single Wildflower. The song’s popularity led to her fan base calling themselves her “Wildflowers”. In 2015 she won the Belk Southern Musician Showcase which gave her opportunities to perform at festivals and events and have her music featured in national TV commercials.
Currently based in Miami, her “down time” between between touring and live performing is in the recording studio. Her newest CD Color Show released in the summer of 2016 but she is already working on songs for the next release. Carly Jo performs with a full band, acoustic duo, or solo.
