Klypi is the musical persona of AC Carter: multi-disciplinary artist from Birmingham, Alabama. Described as being part obsessive-maker and part conceptual over-thinker, Klypi encompasses many of AC’s thoughts, eccentricities, questions, and passions.  Now living in LA, AC moved from Nashville, TN in order to pursue their musical dreams. Klypi is part pop (rising) star, part (start-up) CEO, and part (alien) humanoid whose sound is influenced by 80’s Synthpop with modern fresh squeezed edge. DIY at the attempt at Hi-Fi.

Now signed with Lolipop Records, Klypi is prepared to release their first self-produced EP in April and Sophmore LP in November of 2023.

They also model with Wildflowers Agency.
Previously, Klypi released their debut record titled Consensual Hits through Orlando-based Dark-wave/Goth Label Popnihil in 2021, and has toured the East Coast with Buddy Crime in Summer/Fall 2022.

Klypi has been reviewed by God Is In The TV, Pinstripe Magazine, WOTT, WUSSY MAG, Immersive, and others, and has also released an eyeshadow palette titled “You See Me” in tandem with Consensual Hits. They attended the Stove Works artist residency in Chattanooga in 2021, and Wassaic Project Residency in Winter 2022. Previously, AC has opened for artists such as Molly Nilsson, Girlpool, Shitkid, and Algiers, and has performed at festivals such as Big Ears, Secret Stages, and Athens Popfest.

A 2020 University of Georgia MFA Fine Arts Graduate in Athens, GA, AC has made garments for Kevin Barnes’ in the Of Montreal’s music video “Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption”, and for Jennifer Vanilla’s performance at MoMA PS1. Additionally, they organized and produced Ad•verse, a festival and project series started in Athens, GA supporting up-and-coming solo and duo artists cross-genre, showcasing musicians, drag performers, performance artists, and visual artists.
