Biography

Subtle Etiquette is one of the many projects of Bianca Carli. She is constantly evolving musically and trying to bridge the sound between the popular and eclectic. With a fondness for music of the 70's and modern trip hop, she injects a dose of sultry presence and soulfulness in all her musical collaborations. Under the aliases of Bionica and Ambient Sass, her solo live efforts had her mixing electronic vibes, infectious melodies and lyrics on love and learning with live brass and percussion. Now, Bianca can be seen with Subtle Etiquette producer/collaborater Shawn Hall, a.k.a Corduroy Kid of Old Sofa Music, in the buzz band "Apollo". The diverse musical influences of each band member make for an undescribable, yet memorable performance. They have shared the stage with BC legends such as Valdy and Chilliwack, recent Juno award winner Greg Schezbel and international touring artists Green TaRa, Bocephus King and Mary Ancheta. Their combined efforts will surely make a mark on the nujazz, soul and dance scene.

Lyrics

Don't Wait

Written By: Bianca Carli

Don’t Wait,
You take a look at your life and you find it something other than you’d expected. There’s no use in pondering the situation over and over, again and again. But hey, I think you should be a little more positive. Because I know you have the courage. It’s hard when no one speaks your language. I know because I’ve been there. So don’t wait for the right moment. Don’t wait because it may never come. Dive deep into the ocean and swim around. Don’t you fret. No regrets and I’ll bet you can get what you want to.
Many years have gone by and you are all alone. You wondered, “How did I get here?” Haven’t you learned about the things that you didn’t like through sadness, frustration and bliss. But hey, I think you should be a little more positive. Because I know you have the courage. It’s hard when no one speaks your language. I know because I’ve been there. So don’t wait for the right moment. Don’t wait because it may never come. Dive deep into the ocean and swim around. Don’t you fret. No regrets and I’ll bet you can get what you want to.

She's All

Written By: Bianca Carli

Open your eyes and you will see just how beautiful she can be with her colorful, vibrant personality. She’s all you want in a woman. She’ll make you want to get down on your knees and ask her to be the one to open up and take you in her heart. What would you do to be the one who held the key that unlocked your secret doors? Can you hear the words of love and the sounds of lust come pouring out?

When you opened your eyes and you will see just how beautiful she can be with her colorful, vibrant personality. She’s all you want in a woman. The energy she possesses overwhelms you. You wish that you could drink her with your eyes. An elixir that’s sweet with the power to defeat the demons the prey when you’re looking down. No more lonely nights. With her by your side you can conquer all.

When you opened your eyes and you will see just how beautiful she can be with her colorful, vibrant personality. She’s all you want in a woman. It shouldn’t take to long for her to realize if she feels the same way to. It’s uncommon, she knows, to have longevity with this kind of magnitude.

Open your eyes you will see just how beautiful she can be with her colorful, vibrant personality. She’s all you want in a woman.
Yes when you opened your eyes and you will see just how beautiful she can be with her colorful, vibrant personality. She’s all you want in a woman.
