The music of twelve year old Carson Lueders is being heard by thousands of people around the world every day. His fanbase is rapidly growing as new people of all ages are discovering Carson through social networks such as Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter. Fans everywhere are taking notice of Carson’s advanced musical skills and unique soulful voice. Carson loves to share his music and hopes to be an inspiration to others.
Carson has already captured the attention of some key players in the music industry. He spent time in Los Angeles meeting and recording with award winning songwriters and producers who have worked with artists such as Justin Bieber, Cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus. They believe Carson has the talent and “star quality” or “XFactor” that it takes to make it in the music world. Carson is currently working on original music and making professional music videos and hopes to be releasing an EP or album soon.
Carson’s musical journey began with a dream and a simple “Toys R Us” guitar when he was just four years old. For his 5th birthday his parents bought him a nice 3/4 guitar and signed him up for music lessons. He started performing at local churches, school talent shows, parties, fairs and charity events. At age six, he was invited to sing live on local radio. When he was seven he wrote his first song. By age nine, he had written two more original songs, one of which won a national songwriting contest.
By the time Carson was ten, he had won his way to two state level singing contests and been featured in local newspapers, on the radio, and on major news stations. He was a finalist in Spokane’s Got Talent and moved on to impress the producers of the prime time show America’s Got Talent.
Carson has caught the attention of great artists such as country singer Keith Urban, pop stars Cody Simpson and Matthew West, and worship singers Matt Maher and Jamie Grace. He feels honored by their compliments and special shout-outs for his cover videos.
Carson is your typical boy – he is active and loves to spend time outdoors. He is an avid motocross racer and his favorite sports to watch and play are basketball and football. In the summer he enjoys water activities such as wakeboarding, tubing and jetskiing. In the winter, he enjoys snowmobiling, downhill skiing and snowboarding. He loves spending time with family and friends.
The combination of Carson’s God-given talents and an incredibly skilled team of industry leaders is sure to take him straight to the top.
