All it took to get comic singer-songwriter Carla Ulbrich comfortably on stage was a near-death experience.
She already had musical ability – she majored in music at North Carolina’s Brevard College – and the songwriter’s bug. “I used to get in trouble with my music professors because I was writing songs in the practice room that weren’t ‘real music.’”
But she didn’t perform. “I had horrible stage fright.”
Then, in 1993, she got sick for the first time. Really sick.
