Karling at Webster's in LA Thursday

Rising Rockabilly songstress, Karling, is making a splash on L.A.’s music scene, snagging her a mini-residency at Weber’s (19312 Vanowen St., Reseda, CA) on April 29, June 10 at 8 p.m. and July 29 at 8:30 p.m. for its new “Western & Roots Thursday” nights, and on May 14 at 9 p.m. for “Rockabilly Fridays.”

The British-born performer will engage crowds with her energetic line-up of music, including songs from her new album dropping May 1, Bound For Nowhere, at the popular venue-- reminiscent of the famous Palomino night spot in L.A.’s San Fernando Valley which closed its doors nearly 20 years ago.

Karling is set to hit additional cities throughout California– including Burbank, North Hollywood, Ventura and Solvang– and to Cedar City, Utah for two shows at the popular music festival, Groovefest in June.

The Los Angeles based performer recently rocked the crowd at the L.A. Derby Dolls halftime show at the April 17 roller derby match in L.A.’s Echo Park neighborhood.

Karling’s eclectic vibe has earned comparisons to Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette and June Carter. She’s even been described as “Wanda Jackson meets Gwen Stefani, who puts in a conference call to David Bowie who’s lunching with the Stray Cats.”

In 2009, Karling picked up a Hollywood Music in Media Award (HMMA) nomination for “Another Lovely Day,” the charming, easy rolling lament that kicks off Bound For Nowhere, which she also performed at the ceremony. She has also won three L.A. Music Awards: Rockabilly Album of the Year, Rockabilly Artist of the Year, and Female Americana Vocalist of the Year.
