Bio

Carla Geneve is a 21 year old singer-songwriter based in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Backed by a captivating show and unique brand of brutally honest lyricism, Geneve established herself as one of Australia's most prominent up and coming artists after the release of her breakout debut self-titled EP which saw her tour Australia prolifically playing sold out shows and festivals such as Laneway Festival & Falls Festival as well as tour with/support artists such as Cat Power, Kurt Vile, Julia Jacklin, Belle & Sebastien, Fred Armisen and more.

Her critically acclaimed debut self-titled EP was released in June 2019 via Remote Control Records/Dot Dash Recordings receiving praise from NPR, KEXP, Beats 1, Triple J and more. Geneve promoted the EP with her debut tour of North America in support of indie heavyweights San Cisco before returning home to Australia for a completely sold out national tour. She was awarded the leading number of wins at the 2019 West Australian Music Awards taking home Best EP, Best Single - ‘Things Change’, Best Guitarist & Best Rock Act as well as Live Voice of The Year (WA) at the National Live Music Awards. '2001' was awarded the WAM 2020 Song of the Year Award with Geneve taking out the coveted prize for the second year in a row, and the first artist in the history of the awards to do so.

Geneve has just released her new single 'The Right Reasons', the second from her forthcoming debut album due for release in 2021.

I love the way you're able to connect with yourself so deeply and in such a vulnerable way on this new release. It's relatable and the songwriting is just divine. Thanking the Universe for your music every time.
