Simple Pleasures and Crayon Days, two tracks from Wockner’s current album Crayon Days made the finalist nominations in the IAMA with Crayon Days taking the top spot overall. His smooth vocals, creative lyrics with co-writer Douglas Stokes along with his stellar performance artistry can be found in the winning song, which is a great representation of the other tracks from his current album.

“I’m still blown away with the win – when you are passionate about the music you create its hard not to love it, but to know that others love it as much as me feels ninja amazing!” Carl Said.

Produced with Michael Flanders (PIM) in Nashville, TN, Carl has skipped up the charts with his first two single releases receiving high rotation to national radio in both Australia and USA.

“For me the song is about life reflection for a new parent. How strange it is that something so small – a crayon – can have memories from your own childhood, AND your own child’s. There was no rehearsal from this role-reversal.” (Carl Wockner)

This is not the only award taste for Wockner’s album with the ARIA nomination for ‘Best Pop Album’ in 2014. Carl is currently recording his next album with Michael Flanders and describes the new material as ‘acoustic / pop / R&B.’ Crayon Days the single and music video will be launched in the upcoming weeks – visit his website for more info.
