The Butterfly Project (2021)

Carla is currently working on her second solo album.  Her second album is inspired by the recent world events that have encouraged her to go inward and pen several new songs about undergoing transformation.  For this reason she’s calling it “The Butterfly Project”, and has released all the demos on her Patreon page:  “Chrysalis” was the initial inspiration for The Butterfly Project, and she has written 4 other songs capturing the essence of the transformation occurring around her as the world evolved into a new way of being.  The second demo entitled “Golden”, had its live performance debut at Joe's Pub in New York City during a show in which she was performing with the prolific and profound Toshi Reagon and Toshi's band BigLovely, with whom Carla frequently performs.  Carla released a new demo each month for the first half of 2021 on her Patreon page and the proceeds will fund the final production of the album.  If you’d like to contribute to the final production of “The Butterfly Project” and get access to the demos and other updates and behind the scenes exclusives for her Patreon audience only, click the icon below to join her Patreon page.
