My love for music is such, that when I'm not singing, a part of me is missing, and my heart is not full.
I have been singing since I was a little girl. I have a lot of fun on stage, and I make sure you do to! When I’m singing a great song, I give myself chills! Can you relate? My first break was when I was dancing in a show in Vegas. I did a little singing too. Then I started singing with trio's in clubs, here and there. L.A. and the Palm Springs Area. My first love was jazz and blues. I was doing demo work for a friend, doing Country songs, and I found that I had an affinity for Country writing. I started writing, about 14 years ago, and it came out Country Rock, and Blues. Always loved the soul ladies, like Billy Holiday, Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson, Gladis Night, Etta James, CoCo Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, and Wynona, and so many more blues and rock groups influence me as well. I have been back in LA, the past 13 years. I am performing as much as I can! I performed with my own band, “Schiada” for 5 years, to promote my CD, that I co-produced, as well as the arranged. I wrote 8 out of the 10 songs on it. This is my baby, my CD, "Come Out and Play”, and I think it is a great product! I spent a year creating, and hosting my own internet radio show, KCLA FM.com. I also sing rock, blues, country, and jazz with two different bands, and I love it all! Hope I have sparked your "County, Rockin, ‘Blues" interest in my songs, as well as my talent! Also, check it out!! My Link on Youtube, (lower left-side). I am a featured singer with a band called Choyce, at the end, just before credits, we do Rock & Roll, and R&B.
Most recently performing Jazz, R&B under the name "Carol Schiada & Friends".........2 Sundays a month at "Cat Man Blu" in Long Beach, Ca. Thank you for this opportunity to tell you who I am. Hope you enjoy listening to my songs, as much as I do singing them!
