Call in to speak with the host
Carole Martini was born in Pasadena, CA, on March 29. She's been a songwriter since the age of 11, having given up the violin for the more songwriter-friendly acoustic guitar. She released four independent CDs: "The Story So Far", "Piece By Piece", "Modern Loneliness" and the newly completed "The Rose In The Boxcar" dedicated to her dad. "Boxcar" was named one of Orange County's Top Ten local releases of 2005. Her style has been described as folk-rock with an edge. Carol continues to play weekly at coffee houses, small clubs, bookstores and college venues. Her extensive repertoire and the wide variety of subject matter ensure that no two performances are ever alike. She plays acoustic and electric guitar and piano in the rock and folk-rock genres. Her parents weren't musicians but were supportive of her music. Carol studied music theory in community college and has written 400 songs. In between the release of her second and third CDs, she wrote 200 songs. Carol's 5th CD will be released this year on her own independent label. She performs in Southern California but plans to travel elsewhere. She will tour Northern California to promote her new CD. Carole performs solo. Her influences include The Beatles, Motown artists and traditional Irish musicians like Tom Petty. Her musical goals are to try and keep writing better songs, keep performing and keep promoting my music. Her greatest musical achievement is that "I'm still pursuing music after all these years. I think it would be a blast to perform with Tom Petty at the Hollywood Bowl!"
It's good to talk.
