Skyflight Productions presents an evening with Carrie Welling on Thursday June 30, 2022 at The Albert S. George Youth Center at Barnesville Memorial Park in Barnesville, OH. No stranger to change or the exploration that comes with it, Carrie Welling has been navigating lifes twists, turns, demons, and discoveries from a young age. A self-described military brat, Wellings struggle to feel rooted in any one place carved a unharmonious path of heartbreak, doubt, and insecurity that defined her 20s and early 30s a journey that lead to her soul-defining rebirth as an international touring artist with a place to call home in Nashville, TN.
Her bold, sultry voice, reminiscent of Sheryl Crows grit, Natalie Maines twang, and Stevie Nicks heart, is upstaged only by the genuine love and connection this natural performer has with her fans both on and off stage. But embracing confidence has not always been easy for this singer-songwriter, who speaks candidly about her battle to be good to herself, and to quiet the inner voice nagging her to be perfect. Through the process of creating her latest work, a collection of songs that encapsulate Carries determination to embrace self-love, self-care, and leave the past behind, shes found a place of peace and healing, recognizing that authenticity and vulnerability is the glue that binds us all.
Melodies rich in folksy, Americana roots, paired with empowering, honest lyrics are stunningly showcased in Wellings full length album High Heels and Heavy Things. Created in a home studio in Nashville with purely organic instruments, this raw and vulnerable record was produced by Eric Holljes (Delta Rae) and features songs co-written by the talented likes of Holljes, Mary Bragg, Alex Wong, and Matt Zavala.
High Heels and Heavy Things has been a long time labor of love since its conception in 2015, to its birth in 2020. In between studio sessions Carrie took to the stage, opening for notable artists such as Delta Rae and David Cook, and performing at popular music festivals including the the Island Hopper Music Festival (Ft. Meyers, FL). Shell be a featured artist at the Songwriters Island Showcase at Island Hopper Music Festival (Isla Mujeres, Mexico) in May 2021, and is scheduled to embark on an international tour through Germany and the Netherlands in Spring of 2021. In the interim shes logged countless hours on the road, performing at venues and house concerts across the US, as well as an international tour through Germany and The Netherlands.
