Carly Stock is a Los Angeles-born jazz saxophonist and woodwind artist known for her big tone and beautiful lead alto sound. Since she first started the saxophone, Carly fell in love with masters like Kenny Garrett and Antonio Hart, and as she honed her craft, began implementing their creativity and grit into her own unique style. She found mentorship at the the Colburn School of Performing Arts, where saxophonist Lee Secard took her under his wing at a young age. But, it wasn’t until she saw UNT’s famed One O’Clock Lab Band that she knew she wanted to pursue music full-time. Carly went on to earn her BM in Jazz Studies and minor in Commercial Music from the University of North Texas, where she studied with saxophonist Brad Leali and played in the Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Lab Band for almost two years.

After graduating from UNT and returning to Los Angeles, Carly was immediately recruited on a six-week tour with Phat Cat Swinger, "Hollywood's Hottest Little Big Band." Post tour, Phat Cat Swinger can be found performing in Disneyland's California Adventure Park for the Festival of Holidays and Food And Wine Festival. Apart from Disney, you might recognize Carly from her monthly Instagram video collaborations with Conn Selmer (@connselmerinc). Carly leads her own passion projects, such as the Carly Stock Big Band, a group that finds its niche not only in serving as a vehicle for brand-new, high-energy pieces, but was also the only female-led big band in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Carly is an advocate for women's equity in jazz music, and her presence continues to break boundaries in the field. Her debut single, “Finally,” a modern jazz ballad, is now streaming on all platforms. In addition to performance, Carly teaches woodwinds and jazz at Music Box (Redondo Beach) and Coast Music Conservatory (Manhattan Beach).

Carly has experience in and is available to play sax, flute and/or clarinet for live music of all styles and genres, recording sessions, musical/pit orchestras, touring, and more!
