Carla Williams is a Bayou based songstress who has been performing since she was three years old logging her first appearance in front of an audience of her childhood church. For an act that was applauded by Digital Rodeo as being “full of raw and powerful honesty,” Carla has always written or chosen to sing songs that related to her own life. “If I sing it, I have lived it.”
As a writer, she’s honed her craft penning tunes with Grammy, Emmy, and DOVE award winning writers since her first record I’m Home in 2008. Her debut project even captured Carla the “Country Female Artist” of the year win at the 2009 New Music Weekly Awards. “Life and the music business have both changed so much since my first album and record deal. I have four children, I got to take the final journey through my grandmother’s battle with Parkinson’s disease and I own my own business. It’s been an incredible journey and I’m excited to share it through my music.”
In 2019, Carla won over the Christian industry with her Tom Hemby produced Love to Gain a single featuring 8x DOVE award winner Kirk Sullivan of the group 4HIM which consequently earned her the title of “Indie Artist to Watch” from New Release Today in March 2019. This fall, Carla will be premiering two new singles He’s Love, a single penned by Bobby Carmichael (Sheila E., Lee Ann Womack, & Ronnie Milsap) & Mark Maynard, and a holiday standard Merry Christmas Darling, a single The Carpenters took all the way to #1 on Billboard’s Christmas singles chart in 1970, 1971 & 1973. In addition, He’s Love, Carla’s first extension into the AC/pop market, finds her own the feelings that she has for her partner in a feverish, brassy tune that showers listeners with her proud assertion of love.
Beyond her musical talents, this model that has appeared in campaigns for Dillard’s and Buckle also founded Innovative Medicine Partners, a company that accelerates the market introduction of new medical devices that deliver unparalleled solutions. Today, Carla splits time between her hometown of Mobile, AL and Nashville, TN.
