Born and raised in Leduc, AB, singer-songwriter Carly
Reirson has spent the last six years immersed in songwriting, penning the tracks for her upcoming album, Diary of a Beating Heart. The first single from the new album, “Aurora,” is a soothing, atmospheric folk song about one of nature’s beauties – the Northern Lights. Written by Reirson and produced by multiple award-winning producer, Murray Pulver (CCMA, WCMA, Canadian Folk, and JUNO), the track features rolling guitar and poetic lyrics that invite listeners to wrap themselves up in the warm tones and smooth melodies of the song.”Growing up in the Alberta prairies, I was always captivated by the Northern Lights. With the guitar motif already written, the imagery that the Aurora Borealis conjured up in my mind came easily. Working with Murray, we were able to capture the magic of the music and lyrics to create a track with timeless sound and universal appeal.”
Reirson first made her mark on the national music scene in 2016 with her debut EP, Fantasy. The project received two nominations at the 2017 Calgary Music Awards for Blues Recording of the Year and Female Artist of the Year. In 2018, her single “Crooner Sing To Me” won the YYCMA Award for Blues Recording of the Year. No stranger to the stage, Reirson has played over 100 shows to date, including five headlining tours throughout Western Canada. Having a rare ability to connect with audiences, Reirson’s upcoming songs continue to showcase her passion for vulnerability in her music.
