Biography

Carla Hassett takes the listener on an introspective journey on her third album, CIRCULO, revealing expressions of sorrow, joy, grief and redemption and one that allows you to travel through time into a world of upbeat adventures. From Brazil to Chicago to Los Angeles, and back again; the sultry Brazilian-born singer and composer returns to her roots and back to the sounds that made her fall in love with the music that captured her spirit forever. Sexy samba blends with the slow grooves of American soul in twelve tantalizing tracks, sung in both English and Portuguese. Carla’s journey to introduce her audience to the passion she found in music helped her to draw inspiration from a deeper, more emotinal place.

Maturing as an artist communing between continents and cultures, Carla struggled to find her own voice, which often felt pulled in opposing directions. Eventually she found a way to pay homage to and integrate the creative landscape of Brazil with the soulful sounds she heard on Chicago’s unsegregated pop radio stations. Her voice became a place where all her divergent influences coexist harmoniously in one place.

“I wanted to take my audience back to the music that defined me as an artist,” says Carla. “Growing up in Chicago in a very Brazilian home where we spoke only Portuguese, I fell in love with the samba, bossa nova, and MPB that my parents played, as well as the soul and pop music on the radio; music like Bill Withers, Al Green, Steely Dan and Fleetwood Mac.”
