Carli J Myers has been crafting her profession as a singer-songwriter and performing artist for the past 4 years, both in her native country of South Africa, as well as abroad. Carli has spent time in Los Angeles, New York and Canada, writing and recording new music with songwriters and producers who have worked with the likes of Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Fallout Boy amongst many other international artists. These global writing collaborations have enabled her to slowly and meticulously develop her craft, and have led to an exciting new series of upcoming releases.
With her completely independent debut single CLUTCH shooting to #1 on top South African radio station Algoa FM as well as charting on many other national stations, Carli’s dedicated and enthusiastic fan base began to grow. She has since released follow up tracks which have unsurprisingly also received extensive national radio support and have all charted on the SA music charts.
Carli’s latest release, JUST SAYIN, secured the #1 spot on the top South African radio station Jacaranda FM, within a matter of weeks. JUST SAYIN remained #1 for two consecutive weeks before dropping to #2 for a further two consecutive weeks, and has remained in the top 10 for ten weeks. JUST SAYIN further charted throughout the country on numerous national radio stations and was featured on multiple media platforms. The song arose out of a collaboration in NYC with American Idol top 8 boys finalist Robbie Rosen.
Carli’s previous hit single CRAZY, which also went straight to #1, was written by Carli at an International Songwriting Camp in Cape Town, hosted by US performing right society BMI (Carli is a direct Member of BMI).
After Carli’s debut #1 hit, the progressive and innovative South African Indie label ‘Just Music’ snaped up Carli’s next two releases. The first, ALL THE KING’S HORSES achieved great success and was entered into the international competition ‘SuperXtar’ reaching the semifinals on the global stage. The second, WALLS, touched the hearts of many people across the world with its powerful and inspirational message.
Carli’s soul lights up when she steps onto the stage and performs for her fans. Over the years Carli has been fortunate to appear and perform live on national TV, as well as perform at many different events and venues, including performing with 16 Grammy Awards winner David Foster, American Idols finalist Katherine McPhee, and Pia Toscano, as well as at the 2010 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
