MY MUSICAL JOURNEY
It all started when I was introduced to the ukulele at a young age..
Like most kids growing up in Hawaii Karlie Goya was introduced to the ukulele at a young age and quickly fell in love with the little four-stringed instrument. By the age of 15 Karlie has won numerous ukulele/vocal competitions such as the prestigious Ukulele International Contest, Duke’s Ukes, and the 2015 Brown Bags to Stardom.
Karlie is also recognized as a songwriter, winning the Hawaii Book & Music Festival’s Songwriting Competition and a semifinalist for the 2017 International Songwriting Competition.
The ukulele is synonymous with Hawaii and its rich music culture. Karlie continues to immerse herself in the tradition, but she also performs other genres incorporating the ukulele that surprises many the first time they hear her music.
Karlie’s debut CD “Till The End” consists of all original compositions which features the unique sound of the ukulele, creating her own style of “Pop-R&B-Island.” Karlie’s soulful, emotional, and powerful voice goes well beyond her age, which is displayed in her music.
