In 2011 was happily singing her successes after being cast in the Italian-American group Bell'Aria, now less than one year later she is ready to take her act on the road as a solo artist and songwriter.
A Farmingdale native, Carvo now uses New York City and Los Angeles as her stage, recently performing on the hit NBC reality show, "The Sing-Off" with the University of Delaware singing group The Deltones, making it half way to the finale.
"We worked very hard and we put in long hours but it was a mission fueled by passion. We were challenged every day to be better performers. I really loved the challenge and sincerely miss it," said the singer, who was a fan of the show long before being cast.
Despite performing at multiple venues prior, the 24-year-old said filming the show was the best experience of her so far.
"Walking out on stage for the first time into those bright lights and singing to your favorite artists in the world, the judges, with some of your favorite people in the world is indescribable. I feel very lucky," she said.
The program, which introduced a brand new fan base to her music, has caused Carvo to focus even harder on releasing great musical content.
"It was very eye opening. As an artist, especially when the media is giving you attention, you have even greater responsibility to do your work well and for the right reasons," she said.
Open to the possibility of one day being involved in other reality show, Carvo is currently focusing on performing with the band she helped create called "Pictures of the Sun". The songwriter is also hard at work promoting her first pop solo album "Projection." Carvo said recording her single "Paralyzed" is what ulitimately encouraged her to finish the project.
"When I wrote "Paralyzed," upon its completion, I decided that this project, this album was something that I had to see through... I really do think that was a discovery of truth and a discovery of my voice," Carvo said in a video on her YouTube channel.
Despite her national success, Carvo said she is still looking forward to the day when she can perform locally again.
"I would love to do some shows out on Long Island to play for old friends and family. It's always nice to see familiar faces in the audience," she said.
