I Remember You

“I Remember You” is a tribute to those who have been impacted by the loss of loved ones. I was working on the melody for quite some time and when I was called in to see “Behind The Curtain” what had been a rough guitar line suddenly had a great purpose. I was inspired by the story and I really wanted to translate the emotion into a song. Music is such a healer, and that’s what I thought was the most important message for this song to convey. I hope that it reaches anyone who is suffering through a loss, and more so I hope that music is a big part of “How We Survive”.

About Carly Thomas

B.C.-based singer-songwriter Carly Thomas is the epitome of a worldly person: she’s lived everywhere from Argentina and France to Thailand and Canada. 

And it shows. Thomas brings her experience to all of her songs, offering listeners her words of wisdom through heartfelt lyrics and beautiful acoustic guitar lines.  

Her strong, clear voice is always thick with emotion, which adds to both the sincerity and beauty of her soft indie folk songs. Her tunes drip with truthfulness, as she isn’t afraid to expose her heart in order to help her listeners mend theirs.  

Spending time in New York City, Carly worked on her craft by playing open mics and coffee shops around the lower east side of Manhattan. She worked on her songwriting and performance and eventually moved to Vancouver, BC where she played with her full band, The Gentle Ladies. For 8 years Carly played around the city and the interior of BC. Her single “Drive me Home” has ranked high in various internet radio charts, an has played showcases in Toronto, New York, and Vancouver. She is now writing for a third release while playing the circuit in southwestern Ontario. 

Thomas recently released her sophomore album, Up This High (2010), a long awaited follow up to her Debut Album, Distance, which was released in 2003. With earthy undertones and honest lyrics, the disc will likely have you wanting more. A welcome change from the typical, but with a voice which is easy to relate to, she has that something which makes folk-ish music interesting and intelligent.
