  • BiographyWho would be crazy enough to jump into a sea of musicians, performers, and critics alike with a new in-strument and new sound based upon that instrument? Well, when Carln searched out a new feel for his songwriting, he did just that. The result was a style of Pop R&B that will last throughout the ages as he plays the guitar on his new EP, Forever. Only Carln can take any instrument or song and give it his signature personality and once you are introduced, you will never forget him. The world took notice when Carln co-produced the flagship and title song for MTVs Take A Stand, Stop The Violence Campaign of 1999, helping the campaigns album to win an EMMY Award for its efforts to spread awareness for bullying and violence. Now it is your chance to experience the signature sound thats giving ear-gasms at every turn.

    Born and raised in Brooklyn New York, this multi-talented musician says he always includes the impossible as a game plan; there is no other way to live life. Carln always knew music would also be a major part of that plan, being raised by two parents whose respective family members all played instruments and sang. They loved music and began educating Carln in its expression when he was only five years old. For years, Carln used his appointment to play the organ and piano for church to study the relief people received by their expression through music. As mom preached, dad ar-ranged for the choir and Carln steadily took piano lessons with a purpose of finding out how to embody feeling with only a sound. In addition to the piano, Carln took up interest in songwriting, recording and mixing techniques at an early age, creating in himself the ability to write lyrics, or-chestrate music around them, and record it as the process was done. Carlin says, Not having any-one around with a particular ability is not an excuse for not having anyone around to learn about itnot when getting it done is your goal. So in that mindset, little Carlin Randolph followed his mom to Costco one day to purchase cassette tapes for her karaoke machine and Carln, the artist was born.

    Today his talents are spread across the musical field in such roles as producer, composer, pianist, song-writer and vocalist. Carlin has performed and worked with several artists such as Angie Stone, Chico DeBarge, Joe, Case, Cassandra Wilson, and BeBe Winans, lending his skills and passion to the art of making music from unfinished musical projects. His talents as a pianist, organist, drummer, and trum-peter can also be heard in his compositions of children songs, gospel music, jazz, pop, R&B and classical pieces. Any artist who has worked with Carln finds his expressive performances, creative energy and talents to be exciting and one of a kind. However with all of his industry work, Carln sees the time he gives to the New York City School System as the most rewarding, professionally creating and developing neighborhood talent showcases, providing piano, drum, violin, and voice training for inner city youth.

    When actor/songwriter, Bo Cleary heard Carlns recording of his song Back Where I Belong for the motion picture soundtrack of Southie starring Donnie Walberg in 2001, he said, Thats the way it was supposed to be done. In 2009, Carln returned to scoring commercials and writing jingles inter-nationally for companies known . At that time, he also returned to producing Pop music after hon-ing his musical abilities for the prior ten years including studies v at Hofstra University in New York. Those who hear Carlns work are quickly affected by the clean crisp emotions put into every lyric

    Carlns music is said to resemble that of Brian McKnight, John Legend, Maxwell, and Musiq but some of his earliest influences and inspirations include Sting, Aerosmith, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Legend, R. Kelly, Quincy Jones, Teddy Riley, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, John.

  • Coltrane, Johnny Guitar Watson, Thelonious Monk, Curtis Mayfield, Jimmy Hendrix, and Miles Davis. While taking years to dissect the compositions of these great musicians, Carln has taken meticulous care in becoming the excep- tional musician, songwriter, pro-ducer, and singer he is today. It is vwith this precision that Carln credits being able to customize music in any genre for almost any artist.

    The most important project to which, Carln has lent his voice, production, in- strumentation, and artistic direction is his recently re- leased EP, Forever. This is Carlns first solo project that features only his voice. Carln originally wrote the six tracks for various other art-ists. However while being recorded, the songs begged to be sung by that voice from Brooklyn, which expresses desire, lust, love, and passion in every breath.
