.......................................................................................................................................

I have been writing music and performing for as long as I can remember and have experience of many styles of performance, from acoustic folk music through to musical theatre.  I have studied the vocals of  many artists and have drawn on their many and varied influences to develop my own unique style.

.......................................................................................................................................

Between July 2012 and Dec 2013 I taught over 80 students at RSM Stage Academy in Wolverhampton and worked with students between the ages of 5 and 18.  The Academy is invited annually to take part in West End Shows in London and in April 2013 The Academy performed Bohemian Rhapsody at the Royal Albert Hall which was an amazing experience for both the students and staff.

I was also involved in 2 Annual Showcases with The Academy which were held at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton where the pieces we worked on throughout the year were performed.

Between 2007 and 2011 I was the lead vocalist  of  professional midland based band DC Fontana, an 8 piece band featuring Hammond  organ and brass section. We performed all over the UK and completed a European Tour through France, Spain and Italy. 

We recorded our debut album "Six against Eight"  at Liverpool's Parr Street Studios and released it in August 2010. I experienced recording with the Liverpool Session Orchestra on several tracks of the album. 

Whilst in the band I became a Director of DCTone Records Ltd and saw the release of our debut album to critical acclaim on our own label. The experience of managing the production and release of an album and single on vinyl, CD and download has given me invaluable experience into the business side of the music industry as well as the performance side.  

DC Fontana's videos are uploaded on YouTube.

I have also collaborated with 8 talented musicians to form The Karla Milton Collective. We had our first peformance on 18th May 2012 and I felt very proud showcasing our new songs.
