NOTTINGHAMSHIRE-born classical singer Carly Paoli will release her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Singing My Dreams’ on 30 June. Featuring a rare duet with José Carreras (the iconic En Aranjuez Con Tu Amor), the album is an enchanting collection of classical and classic pieces, as well as original compositions – some featuring lyrics by Carly herself.
‘Singing My Dreams’ is the personal story of a little girl who fell in love with the MGM musicals; a teenager who sang in the piazzas of Puglia; a student who studied her craft at Tring Park and The Royal Northern College of Music; a rising international star who has sung with – and is lauded by – luminaries including Andrea Bocelli, Elaine Paige, David Foster and Carreras who said: “Carly is a wonderful person to work with. I admire her voice, artistry and her charisma. It’s a pleasure for me to sing with her.”
Daughter of a lorry driver, Carly grew up inspired by classic musicals from the 1940s and 1950s and said she was raised in the language of opera with an Italian mother and surrounded by the soaring voices of sopranos like Maria Callas and musical legends Gene Kelly and Judy Garland. “I fell in love with classical music’s ability to bring to life the most emotional stories with beautiful lyrics,” she said.
In between recording her album Carly, a mezzo soprano, has performed on international stages including The Forum and Terme di Caracalla in Rome, as well as in Monaco, Malaysia, Florence, New York (Carnegie Hall) and London (O2 Arena), and at Windsor Castle and St James Palace for HRH the Prince Of Wales.
