Carl’s magnetic personality, silky voice, and feverous work ethic have led him down an interesting and fortunate path. A life-changing encounter with producer-composer Jack Lenz —during a regular workday— quickly resulted in Carl’s first full-length studio album, Simply Sentimental.
The album is a 13-song collection of elegant romance, delicate strength and poetic sophistication. The Toronto crooner returns the listener to a time where lyric was king and delivery was smooth. Carl’s music represents deep personal reflections that easily resonate on a common level of familiarity from fans to fellow artists. “In My Dreams” and “When Lilacs Bloom” delicately deal with the loss of his mother; while he questions the vulnerability and reasons behind I love you in “Please Don’t Ask Me”. Garnering frequent rotation on Bravo, Carl nostalgically returns to his hometown, only to be greeted by strangers in his first video release “No Longer There”. His incredible sense of determination has landed Simply Sentimental in the hands of Celine Dion, Tony Bennett, and Elvis Costello. This exposure has allowed him to express his love of Toronto’s diverse culture by proudly performing during the Toronto International Film Festival, a very high point in his budding career. Carl has shared his honest sentimentality with audiences in Yorkville lounges and sold out 3000 soft-seated theatres for the performing arts.
