Clint Carney is a musician, painter, filmmaker, and actor.


Clint Carney has been writing music under the moniker SYSTEM SYN since the late 1990s, and the project soon became a fixture on the Los Angeles Goth Industrial scene. In 2004, Carney inked a record deal with Out of Line Records (EU) and Sector 9 Studios (US) to release the debut SYSTEM SYN album, “Premeditated.” The following year, SYSTEM SYN signed to Metropolis Records, the premiere indie label for dark alternative music in North America. In the years to follow, SYSTEM SYN would release six additional albums and several successful singles through Metropolis, and perform hundreds of shows all over the globe.  Shortly after the release of SYSTEM SYN’s  seventh album, “No Sky to Fall,” Carney took a hiatus from music to focus his creativity on his budding film career. 2019 saw the release of Carney’s first feature film as a writer and lead actor - “Dry Blood” - for which SYSTEM SYN also provided the musical score (released by Burning Witches Records). 

In 2020, Carney formed his own record label, Second Act Records, which would go on to release the highly successful SYSTEM SYN album “Once Upon a Second Act,” and the follow-up remix album, "If it Doesn't Break You."

Now in 2023, SYSTEM SYN is ready to unleash it’s finest and perhaps most pop oriented album to date, “Kill the Light.” Expertly mixed and mastered by Ted Phelps (Imperative Reaction), the album takes the listener on an emotionally engaging journey, showcasing Carney’s vocal and lyrical talents like never before. The songs of “Kill the Light” range from haunting and heartbreaking, to heavy-hitting club tracks, yet all retain the sound that is so uniquely SYSTEM SYN. "Kill the light" also features backing vocals and guitar on selected tracks by SYSTEM SYN live members, Tash Cox and Scott Landes.


Clint Carney's creations show in galleries and private collections worldwide, and can be seen on screen in film and television.
