Hello there! My name's Carmen and I'm an artist (aka Karhys), songwriter, pianist and composer. I like writing hooks as I love a good strong melody as well as layered harmonies! I write full songs but I do love writing top-lines or lyrics only as well. I find writing over producers’ beats quite stimulating, especially hip-hop/lo-fi & r&b beats!
Songwriting (melody, chords and lyrics); Singing (main vocals + harmonies); Production (demos & music arrangement); Piano; Pre-Mixing (vocals).
Music has always been part of my life. I studied classical piano at the conservatory and got my MMus degree in piano performance at 19 yo. My studies also included theory & harmony, I can read music notation as well as write scores and I've got perfect pitch, which comes in pretty handy in the writing process!
I LOVE co-writing! In Summer 2019, I was admitted to a selective Songwriting workshop at New York University (NYU Steinhardt), where I worked with amazing faculty and got to co-write songs everyday throughout the whole duration of the workshop.
I released an EP in 2019 and then put out five singles while working on my album which is coming out next month!
