Hi Carla!

I liked the song and thought it had a great sound! While the video was artistic, I felt like the outfits changing colors were a bit distracting and detracted from the song. Please feel to send me more new music as you have it. Thanks!

HI Carla ... thanks for the song.  I liked the throwback Sade ish vibe of the song.  For what I'm looking for - I'm usually looking for a little more beat driven indie and indie pop as it relates to artists for We Are: The Guard or writing up there or signing with my publishing company.  I think for a DIY video (I watched twice) you did a really nice job but at the end of the day just might not be the right fit for me.  Nice work though for sure.

Start Starting by Carla Stark

Leks Maltby

On "Start Starting" by Carla Stark, fans are treated to three-and-a-half minutes of feel-good pop music with jazz instrumentation peppering the track for variety. With a positive message to boot, this is a self-empowerment anthem if ever there was one. Stark's lead vocal is unique, recalling no immediate comparisons, while the instrumental arrangement is a perfect compliment to what is already an up-beat composition. Like a cup of sonic sunshine, Stark taps into good feelings like a miner panning for gold, and seemingly succeeds with every attempt. Definitely a soon-to-be hit that you have yet to discover.

Nice, perky beginning with the smooth vocals and brass exultation. The lyrics do well in projecting the trials and tribulations of day-to-day loneliness and obligations, though with a shimmer of optimism in the "I have to start something" hook accompanied by the upbeat brass flourishes. This track plays like the antidote to a mid-week (or mid-life) funk. Bridge at 02:12 enchants with a nice piano glisten, before re-emerging with the perky brass and a bit of New Orleans swankiness at 02:30. Accompanied by a nice, apt music video, "Start Starting" is a chipper success.
