Carly Comando is a thirty-two year old pianist who resides both in Bethlehem, PA and on the road.  She has already achieved commercial success with her instrumental song “Everyday” and continues to create music both on her own and in her band, Slingshot Dakota.  A combination of classical training, perfect pitch and true love of music give Carly an advantage in captivating her audience worldwide. 

In 2006 Carly had the opportunity to show off her versatility.  She collaborated with photographer Noah Kalina to produce a six-minute stop action video showcasing six years of his life.  Noah Kalina conveyed his daily routine of taking his picture through a captivating short video and Carly composed a song specifically for this project. Combined with Carly’s instrumental piano track, Noah’s video became a viral sensation. “Everyday” was featured on CNN, 20/20, VH1 and every mainstream newsroom.  His video continues to receive millions of views per week, with over 12 million views to date.  With the success of his video came the success of Carly’s song.  In 2007, she licensed “Everyday” to help launch a new ad campaign with the NBA entitled “Where Amazing Happens.” Fox network The Simpsons also featured “Everyday” in their parody of Noah’s video in 2008.  She received an award from the Academy of Television and Sciences Primetime Emmy Awards for her contributions to The Simpsons.  Carly’s music achievements have been recognized in Time Magazine and the NY Daily News.  “Everyday” lists fifth on Itunes as the most popular downloaded song entitled “Everyday,” outranking James Taylor and Bon Jovi. 

Carly continues to license her song out to both national and international clients. The success of her music inspired her to write an instrumental album entitled “One Take.”  This album contains fourteen original songs, including “Everyday” and other melodies Carly originally composed for an independent film called Bittersweet.  This album launched Carly's commercial career, and she has since created original pieces for viral marketing campaigns, recently including Petcurean's "Savour Every Moment." The Petcurean short film debuted this spring at NYC'S Tribeca Film Festival. 

Carly Comando already has many successful musical accomplishments under her belt; however, this is only the beginning of her career.  She may have learned the foundations for creating music, but firmly believes that a song cannot be anything if it does not have heart.
