TVD Premiere: Carly
Van Skaik, “Behind The Velvet Curtain”

Carly Van Skaik’s firsthand tales of shadowy Tinseltown noir seem tailored for the silver screen and have already garnered song placements in several network shows including Shameless and The Magicians. Her single “Behind The Velvet Curtain” continues mining this moody vein, shedding light on the figurative Oz who pulls the puppet strings behind the religious hierarchies of the world.

Carly asserts “Behind The Velvet Curtain’ is about being wrongly persecuted and the overall hypocrisy of organized religion. “I grew up with my dad and his boyfriend in a very conservative religious community until about the age of 10 and witnessed a lot of hate and judgment toward my family because of who he was.”

“Meanwhile those same people would turn around and preach love and acceptance inside church doors. You see this kind of behavior all over the world. People killing each other over different interpretations of one scripture, people denying gay marriage licenses because it goes again their religious beliefs.”

The Carly Van Skaik EP is due out tomorrow March 24th, the same week “Blue Diamond Eyes” will air on subsequent episode of The Magicians.
