Carrie Lyn Pagano, born in the 60's, an only daughter and eldest sibling of three younger brothers, grew up through the 70's in the small town of Crestwood, Illinois, with a "stay-at-home" Mom, and a Dad who taught print shop and graphic arts in the Chicago Public High Schools. Memorable times of excitement and joy had music! All types of music filled the air, but sound waves most deeply resonant were the "rhythm and boots with those groovin' roots" varieties, so Carrie Lyn grew her musicianship like a wild garden, her vivacious violin style wrought with fundamental tradition fused in raw heart passion as "warm my soul" expressions of a God made musician. Enjoying exuberant comments and compliments like - "your music touches my spirit", "you beast on that violin", and "you are the real deal", from fans and industry alike -she remains reverent in respect - knowing music is a gift,
School orchestra beginnings of "Twinkle Twinkle" from a teacher who played trumpet and violin accompanied class on drum kit, receiving her first standing ovation 4 months later for a performance of Music Minus One - Barcarole from Tales of Hoffman - known classically and as an Elvis Presley cover, to attending a master class string ensemble in 5th grade at DePaul University School of Music where she later earned her BA in Performance as a "free -ride" scholar, Carrie Lyn knew her gift was a little different. It went beyond playing note for note by heart . . . it was about playing with heart . . . and soul . . . and speaking "LOVE" with her instrument! With this revelation and raw talent, Carrie Lyn took her classical symphony and solo work discipline and sought out the live music stage - Country, Blues, Jazz, Gospel - with local to the top touring artists. Where ever she could play, she did, and found herself an artist - being approached as - you're "that Violynist" - and so with each memorable performance folks asked her name!!
