NEWS ABOUT…AWARD-WINNING COUNTRY/POP VOCALIST, EILEEN CAREY

                                  

 *Performs Locally: ROSE CITY ROCKS MUSIC FESTIVAL –

 Saturday May 22nd*

It is uncommon when you come across someone who is already a “star” in his or her own right, but relatively unknown otherwise. I’ll start off with saying I love, love, love her sound, and her music choices for this CD, “Movin’ On”. Her voice is unique, in that she has a natural talent for blending blues, pop, and country together that is all her own sound.”                                                              NASHVILLE GAB

  Award-winning Country-Pop vocalist/singer-songwriter Eileen Carey (“Americana Album of the Year,” 2009 L.os Angeles Music Awards; “Song of the Year, ” 2009 South Bay Music Awards) and her most recent CD MOVIN’ ON ( MyRecordLabel.net) continue to receive media notice. Eileen was recently either interviewed or reviewed in THAT NASHVILLE GAB,. NASHVILLE MUSIC GUIDE, MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE, NASHVILLE COUNTRY CLUB, and NEW ARTIST RADIO. Carey was also profiled in April on “CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE TV,” a 13-week half-hour television program based on the exciting and adventurous activities California has to offer (log onto www.californiaadventuretv.com, and click on “The Show” to watch).

Locally, Eileen Carey performs at the 2010 Rose City Rocks Music Festival, 72 N. Fair Oaks Blvd., Pasadena, Saturday, May 22. (Nette Radio Acoustic Courtyard). 3:40 p.m. Tickets $10. (available online at www.rosecityrocks.com).

Fans and supporters of Eileen can log onto www.sellaband.com/projects/eileencarey to donate money to her “Out With The Girls” club promotion.

MOVIN’ ON has received critical acclaim and in part, earned Carey a “Hot 100 Unsigned Artist For 2009” selection by respected international trade publication, MUSIC CONNECTION Magazine. Carey is currently being looked at by various companies for endorsement deals – among these, a major retail clothing company for use of her catchy tune, “Out With The Girls.” A U.S. Tour is in the works for 2010 as well.

Carey performed at four different showcases during the 2009 IndiegrrlWomen In The Arts Conference in Nashville. “Singer/songwriter Eileen Carey has emerged over the last few years as a both an accomplished storyteller and effective, appealing stylist,” wrote Ron Wynn in NASHVILLE CITY PAPER .

The bi-coastal Carey (who divides her time professionally between Nashville and Los Anegles) contributes the song “Faith” from MOVIN’ ON  to ROCKIN’ MOMS VOLUME 2 compilation, whose mission is “to promote, provide resources, and acknowledge the work of mothers…since 2004, the online community and website has grown to serve members from all over the world.”

“Carey’s approach and style on “Do I Dare” and “What Goes Around” shows that’s she’s able to extend her idiomatic range but still reflect the story-telling acumen and authority necessary to ensure country credibility.  NASHVILLE COUNTRY CLUB opines, Eileen Carey has come a long ways in her maturity as a vocalist…true to her song-title ‘That Was Then This Is Now’, the tune metaphorically gives her a re-introduction into her music. The production on her album also has given her a chance to focus on her ability as a singer as well as an original artist.”  MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE says, “Carey has done well with her cover of Keith Urban’s “That Was Her, This Is Now,” as well as the moving “Stand,” which might very well be the best cut on the album.  If you like your Country with a little bit of an ‘80s flair, you might like this”! ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE writes, “On Eileen Carey’s new single “That Was Her This Is Now” the country singer from Southern California uses her Nashville native, easy-flowing twang to tell the universal country-themed song of being the new woman in a man’s life; when he was mistreated, to great effect…it is the poetry of the lyrics that country fans and non-fans can relate to, even many males since they have also tried to gain a women’s trust after their hearts been shattered. Carey’s voice is warm, welcoming and full of heart…even for non-country fans, you may find yourself falling for the red head with the catchy tunes and endearing voice.”                                  

“Carey’s music is reminiscent of the Stones tapping into country with a female Jagger,” wrote respected national trade magazine, MUSIC CONNECTION, during a review of Carey’s show at renowned venue The Derby in Hollywood. “Her vocal style is a bit Reba McIntire with a touch of Bonnie Raitt thrown in…Carey delivers very solid vocals; she and her band play well together,” the review continues, “and they have a tight, cohesive feel that can only come from experienced and well-rehearsed players…Carey’s material is strong enough to find a wide audience in the country/pop market…this album could take her music to the next level.”
