With her warm, graceful voice and her knack for cutting "into a subject...with a diamond-edged blade**," Edie Carey grabs hold of her audiences and doesn't let go until she steps off the stage. While her songs are what first draw listeners in, it's what she says in between that keeps them coming back. Carey's wry and self-mocking humor, coupled with her ability to tell a great story, makes audiences feel as though they have just spent the evening with a very close friend. Given the triple threat of her magnetic stage presence, heart-grabbing songs, and almost unearthly voice, it's no wonder that the word about Carey is traveling fast. Performing Songwriter called her latest release, When I Was Made, "a lovely, shimmering, heart-felt record"; Harp Magazine proclaimed it "bare of self-pity and full of down-to-earth revelation"; Paste declared it "vulnerable and pleasing...rich with humanity and insight," and Country Music Weekly gave it "****(four stars)." Since beginning her rigorous touring schedule in 1999, Carey has performed in rooms such as The Bottom Line and Bowery Ballroom in New York City, The Fillmore in San Francisco, Boston's Somerville Theatre and Club Passim, The Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton, Nashville's Bluebird Cafe, Genghis Cohen in Los Angeles, The Opera House in Toronto, and The Borderline in London. She has also played repeat performances at The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, The Southern Womyn's Festival, The Houston Women's Festival, and Chicago's Edgewater Days and Market Days. She has shared the stage with artists as varied as Leo Kottke, Ani DiFranco, Jonatha Brooke, Lucy Kaplansky, Patty Larkin, and Sandra Bernhard, and has toured extensively with Melissa Ferrick. Carey's latest recording, When I Was Made, was produced by Evan Brubaker (Holly Figueroa, David LaMotte) and Troy Glessner at Spectre Studios in Tacoma, WA. Featuring acclaimed Seattle-based musicians Jonathan Kingham, Skip Peri, Dan Tyack, and Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco), When I Was Made was released in January 2004. Edie's previous albums, Come Close, Call Me Home, and The Falling Places were released to critical acclaim in 2002, 2000, and 1998, respectively. **WUMB-FM, Boston
CHRISTINE HAVRILLA - Christine Havrilla's latest release, "Velocity," features her six piece band and an eclectic collection of songs. Listeners hear an edgy rapid start to the album. At the same time, Havrilla is introspective as sounds range from raw electric guitar to the subtleties of violin.
"Velocity" reveals Christine's pure musicianship and devotion to her craft as she co-produced the album. With Duane Large (drums), Bill Gallagher (bass), Gretchen Schultz (backing vocals), Wendy Fuhr (backing vocals & violin), Bob Beach (harmonica), Havrilla's "Velocity" offers a full, firmly established sound. Along with her earlier albums, Christine has a collection of songs that clearly define her as a pop singer/songwriter at the peak of her form.
