Hailing from Leduc, AB, Reirson has spent the last eight years immersed in songwriting, penning the tracks for her upcoming album, Diary of a Beating Heart. Her new single, “Giving Up On Good,” is a gentle, yet heartbreaking song that explores the gaps between leaving love and waiting for a different, better kind of love to come along. Produced by Murray Pulver, this song is carried by the warmth of the piano and the steadiness of the band. Singing from her heart, Reirson’s raw vocals bring to life the pain and tension that waiting for love can bring.


“It’s a vulnerable thing, waiting for the love that you deserve, but it’s even harder when that means you have to let go of a love that you thought was good enough. Even after years, this song still carries me through my pain, and I hope that it can be there to carry others as they wait for love.” – Carly

“Emotions are universal, and I believe that my songs can be a voice-piece to those who may not know how to put their feelings into words. People so often look to music to express themselves and find meaning for their life. I feel a responsibility to share my story in the hopes that it can serve others as they search for connection with themselves and those around them.”
