Carla Patullo: From Scoring A Film to Scoring A GRAMMY Nomination

Value-based career decisions are Carla's secret sauce

January is my birthday month! Please consider becoming a paid subscriber as a gift to me and the women who benefit from Herizon Music’s podcast and newsletter. Thank you for your patronage and uplifting women in music!


If you’re a movie buff, you’re going to love today’s guest. She’s a composer and multi-instrumentalist whose music has appeared in over 30 motion pictures and soundtracks like Porno, This Is Jessica, and Lotte That Silhouette Girl.

Not to mention over 100 song placements in Emmy and BAFTA award-winning shows like Ellen DeGeneres, The Young & The Restless, Skins, Teen Titans Go, and Dance Moms. All you gamers out there may even recognize her sounds in the Microsoft video game Project Spark.

She also records and performs as White Widow and recently released a new album “So She Howls,” which is nominated for a 2024 GRAMMY in the “Best New Age, Ambient or Chant Album” category.

Her work has earned her over a dozen awards, nominations and fellowships since 2015, with two of her film scores presented at the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences Museum.

I am so excited to welcome the musical champion for women, minorities, immigrants and the LGBTQ community, and the woman who Sandra Bernhardt calls “so fucking groovy that it scares the shit out of me!”
