Carla Hasset lança quarto disco +Blue
 
Depois de uma temporada de sucesso em Los Angeles, a cantora e  compositora Carla Hassett esta em fase de gravação de seu quarto disco, +Blue. Radicada nos Estados Unidos, desde os cinco anos de idade, seu novo trabalho é uma busca de variadas experiências, que unem as influências norte-americanas e brasileiras da artista.
 
No quarto disco, Carla usou como referência momentos da infância em que descobriu sua paixão pela música brasileira e a saudade de seu país natal. Assim, nasceu o desejo de misturar o samba, a tropicália, o jazz e elementos eletrônicos, surgindo assim, novas composições e regravações como resgate saudosista de sua pátria, e de artistas que também viveram fora do Brasil, como Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil  e Carmen Miranda. E grupos como Os Mutantes e Os Novos Baianos, que a influenciaram de forma significativa.
 
Em sua nova composição “Aquela Menina”, Carla Hassett assume seu violão trazendo elementos da MPB e baião, identificando suas influências.
 
“O que há de bom”, também é uma de suas novas canções, e mostra o bom e velho samba, misturado com percussão.  
 
A música South American Way consagrada na década de 30 por Carmen Miranda, traz uma releitura de Carla Hasset que alia o jazz, a bossa nova e  programações eletrônicas.
 
Já o resgate da música “A Little More Blue”, composta e gravada em 1971 por Caetano Veloso no período que esteve exilado em Londres, é um dos pontos altos. Música bastante melancólica traz na versão da Carla um mix de suas influências com uma pegada jazzística e algumas experimentações eletrônicas que remetem à Tropicália. A música influenciou a escolha do nome do álbum +Blue.

Carla’s musical history lives side by side with her life history. Influenced by her parent’s musical tastes, she grew up listening to Brazilian music. Carla’s father was transferred from São Paulo to Chicago when she was a child and so American music of the 70’s added to the soundtrack of her young life and continued to influence her till today.
 
At six years old, Carla began piano lessons, followed by guitar lessons at 10. By 11 she was writing and recording her own songs on her groovy Panasonic tape recorder and on her dad’s Tascam reel to reel. But her professional life began at 19 when she started performing with local Chicago bands and landed several national commercial jingles. It wasn’t long before Carla moved to Los Angeles and was soon touring with major artists like Billy Idol, Sergio Mendes, and actor/musician Gary Sinise.
 
In 2012, Carla sang for the legendary Caetano Veloso when he was honored as the Latin Grammy Person Of The Year. Carla is on faculty at Flea’s (Red Hot Chili Peppers) Silverlake Conservatory of Music.
 
Carla’s third album, Circulo, produced by Léo Costa, features guest vocals and production by legendary drummer James Gadson (Bill Withers, Martha Reeves, Randy Crawford, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, BB King, e Rose Royce). Selected vocals and drums were recorded on Gadson’s vintage board, once owned by Berry Gordy for his west coast Motown recordings.
 
In 2006 Carla recorded her second album, Quero Saber, with a track featuring Carla’s long time friend Mike Patton of Faith No More. Patton and Carla have been friends since Faith No More opened for Billy Idol’s Charmed Life Tour. The two reunited to sing a version of Lennon and McCartney’s “Julia.”
 
Carla sang on several films, like Rio 2 with Janelle Monáe and Rio with Sergio Mendes; Ask The Dust (Salma Hayek and Collin Ferrell) and Disney’s Kronk’s New Groove.
 
TV appearances include 7th Heaven, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, The Tonight Show and album participations include Gino Vannelli’s Inconsolable Man and Enrique Bunbury’s Dispierta.
 
Between day gigs as a singer, Carla focused on songwriting. In Brazil, her song Teu Olhar became the theme song for the telenovela Amor e Ódio and soon after she released her first EP, appropriately titled First, which received support from Radio Eldorado in São Paulo and KPFK in Los Angeles.
