WINTER - 2015! 

Hey everyone – hope you're all having a happy winter 2015 so far! Life is busy but great as I continue my journey in this crazy business of making music, managing music and teaching music!

There are three artists I'm currently working with and I'm so excited about being involved as these teens spread their wings in their musical journey. I've been managing and writing with all of them and we are creating songs I hope will resonate with you.

17 year old Riley Lynch is currently touring the New England area and I'm often joining him on stage playing guitar while he belts out his songs – it's truly amazing to witness him expand his fan base, become a more seasoned performer, and write more mature songs customized for his incredible voice. We are about to film his first feature music video for “Holding Stars” and I will be sure to let you know when it's released!

17 year old Julia Russo is truly one of the most gifted lyricists I have ever worked with. We have such a wonderful way of co-writing, as I am usually the composer and she the lyricist. We are currently in the studio finishing her first 7 song CD of original songs (untitled at this writing) and I'm helping her get her feet wet on stage as well. Julia's voice is so unique – unlike any I've heard and I'm thrilled to be working with her.

19 year old Allie Martocci is about to burst onto the teen scene – she's already played the Middle East in Boston, and next up at Revolution Music Hall in Long Island. We are in the middle of finishing two more songs before heading into the studio for recording! Allie has a power-house voice and a rock and roll attitude – I know the path is wide open for her to soar!!

I've got a few of my own songs in the oven and will be releasing them soon. I'm excited to get out and perform with my band, or at songwriter rounds so check out the tour page and come say hello!

A shout out to ALL my vocal and guitar students (45 of them!) who continue to amaze me every time I see them and work with them. Often it is I who learns more from them, and always there is joy in the journey. I've been exploring songwriting with a number of my students and I know it's just a matter of time when I'll be singing their praises as we record and release fresh, original songs! 

Music is my life, my love and my passion and I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love every single day. Thank you to all the gifted musicians who make me a better one.

 

Peace and Love to you all.

NEW SINGLE OUT!!!  

 Hi Everyone!!  I just released my latest song, "Why" and it's available right here to listen to (or purchase!) Hope you enjoy - I was inspired by a friend going through an "on again/off again" relationship, and remembering that I had one of those in my past as well...
Cheers to all and be sure to check out my tour page for upcoming shows!!!

Peace and Love,

Carrie


STRENGTH TO MOVE 

The release of a new album is always exciting for me - it's one more body of work I can share with you. I was having coffee this morning and the beautiful cardinal came by to say hello. This bird visits me almost every morning - for about a year now. I started writing a song about him - turned it into a sparkling pop song and that just got me thinking. The one question I get asked a lot is - "what kind of music do you play?" I try and search for an answer to that one and I'm always stumped by that.

For me, the beauty of being an artist is that I write what I feel. I think the more appropriate question would be - what kind of music do I love? I love a great melody, and I love thought provoking lyrics - I love to listen to a good story in three minutes - I love being moved by a song.

"Strength To Move" is a blend - there are some jangly pop songs, there's country pop, there's a little bit of folk. I don't ever stick to one genre and I like it that way. I can write a song with more blatant lyrics like the cheater song - "There's The Door", or bring it down a notch to more reflection on "Double Dare". Why don't you take a listen and send me an e-mail - YOU tell ME what kind of music I play - I want to know! Thanks for taking the time to listen to my new album...

Available from the Store Page or on Itunes!
