founder of smashing ivory productions

Carly Ann Worden, (also known professionally as Smashing Ivory & Cawnawyn Mor), is an American singer, songwriter, composer, and producer. 

Carly Ann started her online musical journey in 2011 creating music covers on her CarlySmashesIvory YouTube channel. Growing up with a classical education in music and a background in film scoring, she created music videos featuring her electronic compositions, live performances of original pieces, and covers featuring her favorite film, theater, and television characters. Eventually, this branched into a passion for fantasy photography and performing in concerts in the Puget Sound area. 

Carly Ann studied music composition at The Boston Conservatory of Music, Dance, and Theater, and graduated with a B.M.A. at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA.

In 2017, upon finishing her B.M.A. and dedicating her time to creating her music and art, Carly Ann founded Smashing Ivory Productions LLC. She is blessed to be working as a director, producer, editor, social media manager, and performer as a result of creating her one-woman production company.

In 2019, Carly Ann produced, mastered, and independently released "Leave It All Behind" under her new Indie Pop/Rock artist name, Smashing Ivory. A shortened version of CarlySmashesIvory, this new label was created to evolve her original pop and rock songs independently of her YouTube Channel. Carly Ann presents a blend of sweeping vocals and dark orchestration in her 2019 Debut Single, "Leave It All Behind".

 

In 2019, Carly Ann created the label, Cawnawyn Mor to distinguish her live vocal performances of songs and covers inspired by Celtic and Pagan tradition, as well as her original songs based on stories of fantasy and folktale. Cawnawyn Mor is the name credited to Carly Ann's work writing and performing spiritual music for the pagan and Wiccan community of Puget Sound.

 

Carly Ann is proud to be working in the Pacific Northwest today as a singer-songwriter/composer, filmmaker, photographer, and astrologer.
