Carly and Mark are an acoustic folk-pop group from Toronto/Waterloo Ontario. Starting out as a duo, childhood friends Carly Blasutti (vocals) and Mark Hart (fingerstyle guitar/vocals) released their first independent recording ‘Carly and Mark’ in 2005 which was described as “sheer acoustic beauty” by indieheart.com and in 2007 earned Carly and Mark 3 Toronto Independent Music Award nominations including Best Song ("Dreamin’ Of"), Best Female Fronted Group, and Best Live Acoustic Group.

Now performing as a quartet with acoustic bass (Bret Higgens) and drums (Joshua Van Tassel), Carly and Mark have just released ‘New City Morning’ – a full length album featuring the new band. The lead track ‘Morning Light Praying’ has already been named best folk song of 2008 by Toronto Exclusive Magazine, included in John Sakamoto’s ‘Anti-Hit List’ in the Toronto Star, and been featured as a top 5 selection by Songwriter Universe Magazine. Their music, variously described as funky, mellow, intense and fun, draws from the band’s diverse interests which include folk, jazz, pop, and blues. With their sophisticated but readily accessible sound, Carly and Mark garner praise from young and old and from fans of all genres.
