Carly Stock

Born:

Carly Stock is a Los Angeles-born jazz saxophonist and woodwind artist known for her big tone and even bigger personality. 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, huge sounds, and grit into her own unique style. Carly found mentorship at the the Colburn School of Performing Arts, where saxophonist and educator Lee Secard took her under her wing. 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. In the most cliche turn of events imaginable, 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 Professor Brad Leali and played in the Grammy-nominated One O’Clock Lab Band for almost two years.
