Ever since her first “gig” as a 6-year-old singing in her elementary
school’s annual talent show, Carly Bins has loved to perform.
Now 16 and a metro Detroit high school rising senior, Carly is an accomplished
singer-songwriter with a voice that’s a cross between Colbie Caillat, Melissa Etheridge and Taylor Swift. Her mature look and stage presence lead many people to believe she’s
far older than her actual age.
While Carly writes mostly for her acoustic guitar, she also writes for and plays the electric guitar and ukulele. When inspired, she is known to dabble a little on the piano.
As the current Michigan State Fair Superstar, Carly had the opportunity to record several of her songs in fall 2015 with renowned producers Chuck Alkazian and Nadir Omowale at Pearl Sound Studios in Canton, MI. The result of that collaboration - her debut EP, 3 A.M. - was released March 22, 2016. 3 A.M. is available on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Google Music Store and other digital music sites. Physical EPs may be purchased at any live performance.
Summer 2016 gigs include multi-day music festivals Electric Forest and LaureLive; the Ohio State Fair; the Michigan State Fair; opening for Michigan favorite Jill Jack - and many more! Click here to check out the full list of announced shows.
