Carly Binding (born 2 February 1978) is a New Zealand pop singer-songwriter, and former member of the girl group TrueBliss. In 2000 she left the group, citing personal differences, and decided to pursue a solo career. Her debut solo album Passenger peaked at #6 on the New Zealand album charts and went gold. It was also released in Australia, where Binding has since toured extensively. The lead single, "Alright With Me", was written about Binding's favourite brand of banana, the Bonita.
She was born and raised in the city of Tauranga. Her second album So Radiate was released on 3 July 2006. Supporting this album, she undertook a tour of New Zealand with fellow singer-songwriter Donald Reid.
In 2007, Binding was invited to play at the music festival SXSW which is held in Austin, Texas each year. This led to her spending a further four months in the US playing regular shows at venues on the Sunset Strip and surrounding areas in Los Angeles.
Carly's father, Wellesley Binding, is a New Zealand painter.
Binding currently lives with former Kiwi league player Matthew Ridge. In November 2010, Matthew and Carly announced the birth of their son, London Luca Ridge. This is the second son for Ridge, who has two children from his previous marriage.
In 2012 Binding appeared on the Auckland musical theatre scene.
