Carla first performed when she was just 4 years old at a party where guests filled a Styrofoam cup with money upon hearing her sing. From this early beginning, music has always been her passion. Seeing a piano in a Tom and Jerry cartoon, Carla felt a calling to play the instrument and began writing songs at the age of 10. While attending New York University, Carla landed a publishing deal with Jellybean Benitez of Jellybean Productions, Madonna’s producer. Her first single, “‘Not This Time”, was released on Atlantic Records. During that time, Carla had the good fortune of writing with many of the best such as Narada Michael Walden, Judd Friedman, Reggie Lucas, and more. As a recording artist, she had a single’s deal with RCA Records, a demo deal with MCA records, and a 6-album deal with the soon-to-be defunct Savage Records. Carla relocated to Los Angeles and landed the role of Maureen in the Tony award-winning musical “Rent” in the West Coast Premiere and later on Broadway. She worked both On and Off-Broadway in many cutting-edge shows like “Spring Awakening”, where she originated the role of Wendla working with Duncan Sheik in its early stages. During this time, her song, “The Lover That You Are” was covered by Pulse and went to #1 on the Billboard Dance charts, also winning an ASCAP award. “Music Takes You”, the follow-up single, also went top ten. Carla wrote the semi-autobiographical musical “Kaleidoscope”, which was selected for the prestigious ASCAP/Disney musical theater workshop in LA directed by Craig Carnelia/Stephen Schwartz. Devoted to giving back to the community where her own dreams were born, Carla returned to her hometown of Pittsburgh to help found a new performing arts school, the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School. Inspired to create a new body of work, Carla has recorded her truest and most personal yet. Since the release of Carla’s CD, ‘All This Time’ in June 2012, she has been creating quite the buzz in the indie music scene. ‘All This Time’ has been added to radio playlists at local stations throughout the US and on the internet. Carla was a semi-finalist in the 2013 Unsigned Only Music Competition for her song, ‘Lean into You’. She has been interviewed and reviewed by numerous international entertainment blogs. Carla is performing with national and international acts such as Rusted Root and Seth Glier. Her first music video for her single, ‘Words Are in the Way’ is receiving national airplay in store outlets and cable stations across the US.
Lara Lamberti grew up for a part of her childhood in Berlin. Lara was born to a family of artists. Her parents were musicians. Her father was a composer and conductor, her mother a concert and opera singer. Many well known artists were born in this family as well: musicians, painters, designers, ballet dancers, writers and actors. As a teenager, Lara settled in Italy where she started her acting career at age sixteen. She quickly became well known in Italy and abroad. Lara has worked in Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Australia and the United States. While already working in the international film business, she attended private acting schools and workshops in Berlin, the United States and Rome where she also took vocal lessons. She completed those vocal lessons with her mother as well as in international workshops, and qualified as a mezzo soprano opera singer. Although she sang in several concerts, she never pursued that path for a real career. In 1993, Lara started studying psychology and musicology at the Freie Universitaet Berlin, finishing in 1998. Based on her studies, she has been developing an idea for a new way of education as she believes that the educational system lacks the nurturing of the creative side of children and young people. In 1998, Lara started first working in the film financing business and together with another member of her family founded her own production company Alshain Pictures in 2006 as to develop a TV series.
