Hi, and Welcome!

I'm Karly - which is technically my nickname.  Karlyn (pronounced CAR-LIN) is my formal name, and the name I chose for my business.  If that confuses you, you're not alone!  I went to music school, not business school, so giving my company a name that confuses people is only one of the many mistakes I made in my early years as a small business owner.  But, it's too late to change it now! 

Following 4 years of undergraduate music study at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and 3 years as a musician in New York City, I returned to Omaha.  I love the midwest and have enjoyed making music in my hometown.  One of the highlights of my return to the heart of America has been traveling around the country as a pianist for Grammy-award winning band (and #1 selling Christmas act of ALL TIME!) MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER.  Some people do not know that the creator, Chip Davis, lives here in Omaha.  Being a part of the Steamroller family has been one of the greatest blessings of my musical career.  

When I am not working with the Steamrollers, I make my living as a pianist and vocalist who specializes in creating elegant music for special events.  I especially enjoy making unique musical arrangements of songs for wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours, and hearing them come to life with other instruments like strings or my full jazz band.  I always encourage my clients to think outside the box... even if there is not sheet music out in the world for a song they love, I can create it for any instruments they choose.  

I hope you'll stick around and take a listen to some of the tracks I've posted on my HOME page.  If you are interested in inquiring about my availability and pricing for a wedding, funeral, dinner party, cocktail hour, or anything in-between, please visit my CONTACT page.
