EILEEN CAREY/Let It Go:

When you gotta make a living, it’s a long way from being one of the Ray Charles Uh Huh girls to being the ambassador for Super Cuts, but since Carey’s act is built around been there/done that and owning it while passing on the wisdom, it’s all good is the watch word here. Her messages don’t hit you over the head, and since Charles liked country music so much, it shouldn’t be such a stretch finding the transplanted Ohioan to LA tracking her music in Nashville. All that and she still has time to cover ‘Walking on Sunshine’. A worthy successor to the divorcee pop pioneered by Dory Previn et al in the 70s, somebody has to chart the course for the rest. This certainly won’t take the guys away from March Madness but the girls have to be doing something in the meanwhile.

Eileen Carey Answers Digital Rodeo’s “Inquiring Minds Want To Know” Questions

One of the hardest thing for human beings to learn is how and when to let things go. So when an artist like Eileen Carey comes along with a powerful message about doing just that, it’s a welcomed sight. The award-winning California-based singer/songwriter’s fourth and latest album LET IT GO features songs which follow through on the theme on letting go of those ties that bind us to the past and perhaps no song is more evident than the title track, “Let It Go,” a thumping up-tempo country pop tune about forgetting the small things or events from our past that lead to insecurities and indecisions of life.

“I always try to give people different options as a way to look at things,” Eileen says. “Because, unfortunately, this world’s been up and down and if I can get them to think about things that maybe they haven’t before, then maybe they can “Let It Go” and get to a better place in their life.”

Below read Eileen Carey’s answers to Digital Rodeo’s “Inquiring Minds Want To Know” questions:

1. In the last year what is the one thing you accomplished you were surprised by?

“Everything surprises me. Every time I listen to my new CD Let It Go, I am surprised that my art and voice keeping growing! Grateful as well!!”

 

2. In the upcoming year what are your top three goals musically that you want to accomplish?

1) A hit single 2) Create alliances with the most creative people in country music. 3) Reach an international audience.

 

3. What is your guilty pleasure when you get off a tour?

LOL…they are not very guilty. Hanging out with my family, my animals and my friends. It is much more exciting than you would imagine though!

 

4. What is your current challenge personally you are pushing yourself to achieve?

“Always the same challenge. To write better songs. To sing them better. To put on a better show. I am living my dream and my passion. I am always pushing myself to give more of myself to my fans. To the world at large.”

 

5. Who would be your “dream artist” to do an opening act for and why?

“Keith Urban. My biggest single to date is a tune he and Vernon Rust wrote called “That Was Her This Is Now”. I have recorded the only version of that song.”

 

6. Who was your most influential artist in your early years?

“So many, but Martha Davis, Patsy Cline and Chrissie Hynde to name a few prominent influences.”

 

7. Do you have hobbies that keep you busy when you are not on the road/in studio?

“Do I? Been kickboxing with regular workouts three times a week for the past 10 years! Been rescuing feral cats for years; and of course I am TheMusicMom.com; which is becoming less of a hobby all the time, and more of an active way I can be of service to other women with children in the music business!”

 

8. “What is at the top of your bucket list besides music?

“I want to write and direct movies!”

 

9. Do you have a “lucky charm” you carry on stage or a routine for good luck you do before you go onstage?

I am not superstitious. I carry my faith with me wherever I go!

 

10. What is your favorite comfort food?

I’m Irish! Potatoes! Any kind of potatoes!

 

11. Current project you are promoting (SINGLE – TOUR – CD etc.) and what are you most excited about it??

“After two years in the making of Let It Go, you know I am excited about the CD release. I believe it to be my best recording to date.”

Eileen Carey Releases “Let It Go”: A Song That’s More Than A Song

Award-Winning Singer Will Showcase New Single and Album at Country Radio Seminar

(Nashville, TN January 31, 2014) Sometimes a song is more than a song. Think Garth Brooks’ “The Dance,” which animated an entire generation to see life for its possibilities, not its pitfalls. Or Joe Nichols’ dare-to-dream epic, “The Impossible.” Now comes Eileen Carey’s sassy new single, “Let It Go,” to remind us that we can soar if we only have the grit to cast off those petty circumstances that tend to tie us down. Eileen will debut “Let It Go” on CDX No. 588 and MPE on Monday, Feb. 3, and follow up the release with performance, interviews and meet-and-greets at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville Feb. 19-21. “Let Is Go” is the title track from Eileen’s current album set for release this February.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Eileen Carey currently lives in California, where she’s distinguished herself as a singer, actress and artist-ambassador for the Supercuts beauty salon chain. In 2009, she won the Los Angeles Music Award for Americana Album of the Year and in 2010 the Producer’s Choice Award for Dance Single of the Year. Her movie credits include Hoffa, Batman and Basic Instinct.
“I try to use my music to give people a different way of thinking, a different outlet,” says Eileen. In “Let It Go,” she achieves that goal magnificently.

Movin On with Eileen Carey

clip_image003Sometimes you get to listen to music you would never have bought or listened to if not someone else had brought it to your attention. Eileen Carey’s Movin On is like that for me. The album’s genre is country/pop, which is part of the reason it is unlikely I would have ever heard of the album if my good friend Joey Alkes had not brought it to my attention.

Eileen Carey is a stranger to the European music scene. That’s a pity, since she would definitely be able to build a fanbase over here. Movin On contains honest, simple music that is easy on the ears. What’s also easy on the ears is Eileen’s voice: it goes strikingly well with the genre. Movin On is a well crafted album that I am sure will grace many music collections all over the world.

For those that don’t know her, Carey is a “Best Female Vocalist” winner at the 2007 South Bay Music Awards. Movin On has won the “Americana Album of the Year” at the 2009 Los Angeles Music Awards and also “Dance Single of the Year 2010” with “Out with the Girls”, which is the 7th song on the album.

Movin On starts off with an upbeat hit single called “That Was Her This Is Now”. If moving on is the album’s theme, this song fits it perfectly! It is one of the more upbeat songs on the album, which holds five upbeat songs and four slower songs.

Track list:

1. That Was Her This Is Now
2. What Goes Around
3. Moving On
4. Stand
5. Do I Dare
6. He’s Not Mr. Right He’s Mr. Right Now
7. Out With The Girls
8. Faith
9. Newsflash

Album info:

* Artist: EILEEN CAREY
* Title: “MOVIN ON”
* Release date: November 21, 2008
* Label: RolleyCstr Music
* Producer: My Record Label Team
* Producer/Engineer: Bryon Holley, Benjamin Robinson
* Engineer: Marv Treutel

To be perfectly honest, the album had to grow on me. On the other hand, it has: what really did it for me is listening to it with some good quality headphones and the correct equalizer settings.
The album snugly fits into the country genre with its collection of country easy-listening tunes.

I can’t wait to hear Eileen’s voice on a real pop-rock album. I wonder what her next album will bring…

My favorite songs are:

* That Was Her, This Is Now
* Stand
* Do I Dare
* Faith (great guitar solo!)
* Newsflash

Eileen’s band members are:

* Suzanne Morissette, drums
* Vincent Bonham, keyboards
* John Mc Duffie, guitar
* Masa Kohama, guitar
* Rob McDonald, bass

What The Press Is Saying About Eileen Carey And Her CD “Movin’ On:

 

“Eileen Carey’s voice is a droplet of honey dangling from a hive: glistening, all natural, and inviting…but don’t be fooled by the coating because the woman beneath is strong, confident, and just a little bit sassy! Lyrically Carey is smart, to the point, and colorful. Potent lines such as ‘Your lips have lost their poetry’ from the title track deliver her message with absolute focused precision and flair. Eileen has something to say and she says it dynamically. An upbeat, empowering twirling dance that relishes life in the moment and celebrates the wonder, joy and excitement of what comes next.”

SONGWRITERS MONTHLY

 

“Upbeat, easy on the ears, blue skies and country sunshine – that’s the sounds of Eileen Carey!! I must admit – although I’m from Texas – I somewhat tend to favor rock and pop music over country music. But I also must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed listening to several of Eileen Carey’s songs when I received them. They got my attention and kept my attention throughout each of the songs. The bright acoustics, clever lyrics and crystal clear sounds of Eileen Carey may just be the type of country music I could really become a BIG fan of. Send me more Eileen!!”

SONGWRITERS WEBCAST

 

The bi-coastal Carey blends a winning combination of smart, from-the-heart lyrics with a radio-friendly blend of Pop and Country. One of those songs, the playful, upbeat “Out With the Girls,” won “Dance Single of the Year” at the 2010 Los Angeles Music Awards and was successfully remade into a country/dance song to accompany a nationwide dance club promotion.
