Chilling. Stirring. Powerful. Contemplative. These are some of the words most frequently used to describe the achingly beautiful piano instrumentals of Carly Comando. Her debut album "One Take" features ten delicately woven songs (including her single "Everday") that are the direct emotional output of her innermost thoughts. "The album means the world to me. It's complete, in-the-moment sincerity translated into moody solo piano music. I used an improv technique, recording in just one take, so I could capture the essence of pure emotion" says Carly. From the rises and falls to the shrinks and swells, these songs will leave an indellible impression on your mind. It's music that stays with you forever.
Carly's well known piano ballad "Everyday" is the score to viral video "Noah Takes a Photo of Himself Every Day For 6 Years" which has been viewed 24,000,000+ times on YouTube alone. The video features a rapid fire sequence of nearly 2,400 photos of Noah Kalina, who took a picture of himself in an identical pose every single day for 6 years. It has been featured on CBS News, Good Morning America, VH1's 40 Greatest Internet Superstars and was spoofed on The Simpsons' episode "Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind." Carly was honored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences with a Primetime Emmy Award for her musical contribution to The Simpsons episode.
"Everyday" currently serves as the score to Amnesty International's "Death to the Death Penalty" ad campaign. The songs has also been used in the NBA's "Where Amazing Happens" tv commercials, the documentary film "The Good Soldier" along with Nine Inch Nails and Crosby Stills Nash and Young, the video "No Reason" developed for the 2009 World Economic Forum, the film "Bittersweet" and numerous other projects.
Deep Elm Records is simultaneously releasing an EP titled "Cordelia" featuring four additional piano instrumentals.
