Carla Morrison – Dejenme Llorar
Listen to this beautiful, but sad, song from Carla Morrison, the Mexican chanteuse del momento.
Carla Morrison is a Mexican Alternative-Pop songstress with international recognition who released her debut, self-produced EP back in 2010. Only two years later, she won 2 Latin GRAMMY Awards – Best Alternative Album and Best Alternative Song – for her most recent and most personal album yet, Dejenme Llorar (Let Me Cry) released in 2012. Her angelically peaceful and lamenting voice brings listeners on an emotional rollercoaster with moments of both heartbreak and uplifting hope, which touch both their ears and their hearts. MTV Iggy has taken notice of Morrison’s captivating presence when she stands on stage with just her pure voice and a guitar, boastings that her “no-frills approach to music-making comes easy for an artist like Morrison, who has talent to spare.”
Famed Santa Monica public radio station KCRW’s music blog named her an “Artist you should know about,” and NPR’s Alt.Latino blog gave her album Mientras Tu Dormías (While You Were Sleeping) the second spot on their Top 10 Latin Alternative Albums of 2010.
The young singer finds it funny that she has been getting so much attention both nationally and in the U.S., but when she walks down the street in her hometown nobody notices. She said about 60 people came to her recent show there. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Morrison has been singing since she was 13 years old and nobody seems surprised that fame has found her.
