Same Sex Mary


BLACK CARL, Phoenix-based group of over 6 years defines their sound as "Desert Soul," beat-driven and meaningful, their unique music has been compared to Bill Withers, The Meters and Erykah Badu. Fronted by vocalist Emma Pew, BLACK CARL has a live power all its own, while Pew's confident vocal dynamics range from sentinel to breakable--a modern, white Nina Simone.

BLACK CARL has independently released several records, including a self-titled EP Black Carl (2007), their first full-length Borrowed (2009), a series of 7" vinyl EPs titled The Chariot (2011), The Hanged Man and The Magician (2011) and The Fool (2012), and a second full-length record The Wheel (2013).

BC believes in making music that hits hard and is driven by their friendship and shared desire to connect with an audience through their songs.
