This multi-talented, seasoned professional was born with the gift of music. Carlie Wall demonstrated singing distinction at the age of five. She has been playing the guitar since she was nine years old when her grandma taught her her first three cords.

2 Comments on The Desert Pulse artist spotlight: Carlie Wall

  1. Being a musician and giving the following comment says it all; Carlie Wall has more potential than anyone else in Southern Utah. Her voice carries the emotion of a song like no other. Her instincts to what makes a song puts her head and shoulders above the competition. With a little luck and the right people she could make Taylor Swift look like a kinder garden student. Crossing my fingers that providence enters the door.

  2. Carlie is very talented, as a songwriter and a Singer as well. She is one of several talented Artist’s that John Houston “discovered”. I was fortunate to be a part of Carlie’s early artistic development and I am very happy to see that her passion for music has returned. She has the talent and she is aggressively building her support network. Best of Luck Carlie! Great Article George!!
