In 2015 Carl Wockner was named the only Australian artist to ever win Top Honors at the International Acoustic Music Award’s (USA), along with top of the AAA category, and a 2014 ARIA nomination for the release of his album Crayon Days. Wockner has skipped up the charts with his first two single releases receiving high rotation to national radio in both Australia and USA. Alongside some major international shows, Carl is one of the favored artists set to blossom onto the world stage during 2015/16 with the predictions of his upcoming album masterpiece to break into the global music scene.
“Carl, The man with the big hair and Golden Tonsils” (Zinc FM) released the self-produced, recorded and mixed EP Acoustic…ness, in 2011 to an overwhelmingly positive response.
Acoustic…ness showcased Wockner’s songwriting skills to such an extent that his reputation amongst established songwriters quickly rose, and he was soon invited to co-write with several of them including Kim Tribble (Gary Allan, Shania Twain, Journey), Greg Barnhill (Trisha Yearwood, Don Henley, Jessica Simpson, Etta James, Chicago, Tim McGraw, Leona Lewis), and Chaise Flanders, all of whom contributed co-writes to Carl’s incredible upcoming album Crayon Days.
Produced and recorded by industry heavyweight Michael Flanders in Nashville TN, Crayon Days picks up where Acoustic…ness left off with its honest lyricism and innovative songwriting. “The diverse set of sounds and moods Carl can create with just a guitar and his voice is truly remarkable” (Aiden Rush, New York), all of which are complimented by featured album guests Jenn Bostic, Siobhan Magnus and Redd. The Point Sunshine Coast editor Rhys Fox said of Crayon Days, “Bordering on almost-too-damn-good, Crayon Days sees and artist that has embraced his own musical evolution, and is now just waiting for everyone else to catch up.”
