Carla Fleming on Emotional Songwriting
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by
Alex Cosper on March 9, 2013
In this second of four SacTV interviews with Sacramento R&B singer/songwriter Carla Fleming
she talks about her background and love for her high school, Grant Union, which she says has a family atmosphere.
Her songwritng is usually based on emotional true life experiences. She explains how her path to songwriting evolved
from writing school essays to poetry then songs. Although she's been singing all her life, including during her
youth in Chicago, she began recording songs in Sacramento in the early 90s. One of the messages in her music is
to raising awareness about violence, as heard in her Domestic Disturbance CD. Her song and video "Heartbreaker,"
though, is a humorous view of a woman who has been cheated on by a boyfriend as she seeks revenge. The video is very
state of the art and was produced by local filmmaker Nick Leisure.
