Carla J. Easton (b. 1985, Carluke) is a singer & songwriter, with a background and education in visual arts, based in Glasgow, Scotland. Graduating from the Masters of Fine Art programme at Glasgow School of Art in 2011, Easton has been performing and writing music for the all girl-band TeenCanteen ever since.

2016 saw the release of two critically acclaimed albums written by Easton; ''Homemade Lemonade'' released under the solo alias Ette via Olive Grove Records, and the TeenCanteen debut album ''Say It All With A Kiss'' via Last Night From Glasgow Records. 2017 sees the release of TeenCanteen's SIRENS EP in April.

Both of these records exemplify Easton's passion for polyphonic melodies, stacked harmonies and studio experimentation. With pure polished pop at their core, Easton's songs are melancholic epics packed into 3 minute synth driven mini dramas.
