Where do you start being so excited to have Carly E. on stage? Carly E in three words: driven, forceful and honest. An electrifying live experience! We never anticipated that a girl with a voice and an electric cello could be so overwhelming. She has just returned to the Netherlands where she will be on tour as of spring 2017. But, hey, TEDxHilversum has her on stage now where she will fill the whole stage and venue with her mesmerizing music.
When she was a little girl, Carlijn already had her cello by her side. Trained as a classical musician, she toured amongst others with National Youth Orchestras from France to China. Her experiences living and working abroad in England and Argentina inspired her to branch out on her own, away from the orchestra and becoming a singer-songwriter. Inspired by the thriving music scenes she encountered there, she recently released her first EP Blue Funny You, recorded in Buenos Aires. Her debut album will release spring 2017 and she plans to tour the theaters in support. Carly E.’s sound is passionate, raw and honest. Her cello is still at her side.
