"Los Angeles-based artist Carmela occupies a dynamic crossroads of indie-rock fueled retrospection. It’s the kind of fiercely cathartic music that demands to be heard live" (Grimy Goods).
Pioneering the world of online musical performances, Carmela hosts a live show three days a week to a growing global audience on Twitch. The release party for her debut album, ‘New Stranger,’ drew an impressive audience of 3,000 viewers on the front page of the platform, and she embarked on a nationwide tour, thrilling devoted fans from Seattle to Miami, Paris to London, San Francisco to her hometown of Los Angeles. Carmela has also received support from multiple playlists and acclaimed online platforms. LadyGUNN Magazine declares, "Chances are you haven't heard this much personality in a vocal in a long time," while Galore Magazine hails Carmela as "the resident glam-girl-rocker, singer, and all-around badass."
In addition to writing and recording her original music, Carmela has collaborated with many notable brands—including Dr. Pepper, Splice, AIAIAI, and Squatty Potty—as well as established artists on stage and in the studio—including Adam Gubman (Moonwalk Audio, Arknights, Disney), Daru Jones (Jack White, Nas, Gloria Gaynor), and Jynjo, among others. During Season 3 of American Idol in 2020 she sang for Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan, getting three yes’s to “go to Hollywood.”
Carmela’s music breathes new life into the indie rock genre, and her “powerhouse vocals and energetic demeanor makes her stand out as a rising star in the music industry” (Find Your Sounds).
