If you HAD to compare Carla Bean to any other Artist...

Take some theatrical vocal harmonies from Queen and Abba; Eccentric synths and grooves from David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, and Depeche mode; Sultry and Powerful Vocals from Annie Lennox, Fiona Apple, Lauryn Hill, Sara Bareilles, and Bjork; Intelligent and complex composition and keyboard playing, from Stevie Wonder; And a sarcastic, humorous personality from Tom Waits... Then you would have maybe one of Carla Bean's songs. You'll Have to come up with your own recipes for the rest!

Carla Bean has also been compared to Kelly Clarkson, Gotye, Kimbra, Regina Spektor, Radiohead, and of course, any young white female singer who plays piano:)

Whatever the song; the production and arrangement is clean pristine and competitive. And Her live performance is tight, energetic, funky, and it downright rocks.

Ms. Bean was born in a tiny tiny town, just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This town contained a Gothic cathedral, a Medieval castle, a few European mansions, and a whole mess of forest and meadows. Carla Bean believes her imagination was allowed to thrive because of her unique up-bringing. The childhood hallucinations and night terrors probably didn't hurt either. If you listen to her music, you'll know, that whimsy and quirk are always essential ingredients.

Her mother, a creative writer and poet, and her father, a musician and visual artist, infused Bean with the bug for all things musical, artistic, and creative. She started playing her father's various pianos, organs, Wurlitzer, accordions; and singing at the top of her lungs when she was supposed to be excited about dolls and Disney World. She was drawing twisted creatures in school, when she was supposed to be taking quizzes. Carla Bean got a disturbing amount of mileage out of the sticks and rocks that the woods provided her.

After years of being an essential ingredient in other bands, such as Fresh Cut Salads, Carla Bean teamed up with Producer and extraordinary musician, Rubin Edwards to take her own music to the next level. She has just released her first solo song and video “Magic Box” to lure unsuspecting folk into her Pied Piper sound-trail, so that we may all be in one place when she drops her album of saucy songs on our asses in August of 2012!
