Carlijn Elisabeth van Wijk from The Netherlands, also known as Carly E., performs passionately and with humor to relate about the non-classical paths she traveled as a cellist and singer.
At the age of five she already knew she wanted to play the cello and conquer the world with her red cello case on her back. Carly E. started off playing classical music in orchestras, but ultimately didn’t see a future in it. So she set out to travel around the world and find out what she really wanted. Away from home she found her calling. In “It’s That Simple” she tells entertaining stories in between songs about her adventures in London and Buenos Aires. Her playful music is an eclectic mix of jazz and pop.
