Carl’s musical sojourn began at age 14 as a cabaret singer supporting some of Australia’s finest crooners; Maria Vanuti, John St Peters, Joe Perone, Simon Galagher, Normie Rowe. At 17, Carl moved to Canberra to study Opera at the Australian National University and began a lifelong affair with Pop Music!

In 2001, Carl formed The Dead Abigails, a 5-piece Pop Rock band, and his most successful project to date. Unearthed by Triple J in 2003, the Abigails signed to Shoc Publishing and released the Code EP. They received regular airplay on Triple J, Rage and Noise TV (SBS), and much later on McLeods Daughters, Young Lyons and Big Brother.
The Abigails were named Oz Music Ambassadors, toured the UK and supported many great Australian bands including, Grinspoon, Kisschasy, Thirsty Merc, Diesel, The Whitlams and INXS. Their second release was to be their last, The Dead Abigails DVD/CD.

As well as playing regular solo support slots for touring acts such as Keith Urban, Tim Rogers, Dave Graney, Ian Moss, and Tim Freedman, Carl founded Mayfield, a 7-piece Soul/Dance act that combined his love of Curtis Mayfield with progressive dance styles.

In 2010, Carl returned to Sydney where he held a residency at the Observer Hotel, The Rocks for 5 years. He also fronted 2 soul reviews: Johnny G and E Types, a Memphis Soul Review and Barrio Soul, a tribute to the Latin soul scene of New York in the 60’s.
