A recent Colorado transplant from Chicago, singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice; her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs; but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on- and offstage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Careyâs wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.
Carey has been singing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the U.S., Canada and Europe since 1999, performing alongside Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Brandi Carlile, and Shawn Mullins. Sheâs also been a featured artist on NPR's Mountain Stage. She's been a winner or a finalist of song competitions at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Lilith Fair, and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
Her latest full-length offering, "'Til The Morning," is a joint effort with award-winning singer-songwriter Sarah Sample. It was entirely funded on Kickstarter by their loyal and steadily growing legion of fans, as were Carey's previous three records. Produced by Scott Wiley (Bonnie Raitt, Ryan Adams), the duo's CD has garnered several music awards, including the coveted Parents' Choice Gold, as well as "Best Children's Album" in the 2015 Independent Music Awards.
