Carla Ulbrich: Professional Smart Aleck



More News on the Upcoming CD


Looks like we're adding even more amazing talent to the upcoming CD!

On keyboards: We're getting my amazing (and fun) friend Bob Malone for 3-4 songs. Bob travels the world both as a solo act and as a member of John Fogerty's band. Back before he was so famous, we used to gig and even write songs together (remember "We Don't Need a Walmart?").

On telecaster: Erik Halbig, who I know from 20+ years ago (we used to teach together at the National Guitar Workshop), will be spicing things up with some hot country picking' on 4 songs. He produced 2 songs for me in 1998 ("What If Your Girlfriend Was Gone" - twang version and "Boy Wonder" wall of sound version). Erik plays with all the big country acts- Ty Herndon, Sugarland, you name it. Like Bob, he is really in demand but he's on board for this project!

On dobro: Rob Ickes, a longtime friend of my producer (Bob Harris), is a Grammy winner and 13-time Dobro Player of the year (International Bluegrass Music Association).

I'm in the studio working on a new CD!


I'm excited to announce that I'm about halfway done with a new CD!

It's my 8th CD and my first studio recording since Totally Average Woman (late 2015) - and I'm really happy with how it's going. 

I'm doing half the songs in Nashville with the ridiculously talented Steve Goodie (who is also very funny), and the other half in New Jersey with the equally talented Bob Harris.

I'm recording the country stuff in New Jersey and the rock stuff in Nashville. Because logic.

I think you're gonna love it.

Stay tuned for the latest!
