Carly Rae Jepsen

March 2, Knitting Factory


If all you know of Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen is the 2012 earworm "Call Me Maybe," you may have written her off. If, however, you enjoy a hooky, addictive pop song and appreciate an amazing set of pipes, you should join the camp that recognizes her talent.

Jepsen made naysayers regret relegating her to "one-hit-wonder" status with the release of Emotion (Silent Records/Giant Little Man, 2015), which features a musical who's who, including Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, producer Ariel Rechtshaid (Beyonce, Usher) and "Chandelier" chanteuse Sia. Jepsen also took a turn as Frenchy in the Fox special Grease:Live, which aired in January, confirming there's more to the 30-year-old singer than an indecisive stalker's theme song. Speaking of theme songs, Jepsen was tapped to pen the theme for the Full House reboot, Fuller House, which airs Wednesday, Feb. 24 on Netflix. Jepsen is making a Boise stop on her North American tour, so get set to board the bus for Camp Carly.
