EILEEN CAREY IS #FLYAH

EILEEN CAREY ARTIST BIO
One of the hardest thing for human beings to learn is how and when to let things go. So when an artist like Eileen Carey comes along with a powerful message about doing just that, it’s a welcomed sight. 
Eileen CareyThe award-winning California-based singer/songwriter’s fourth and latest album LET IT GO features songs which follow through on the theme on letting go of those ties that bind us to the past and perhaps no song is more evident than the title track, “Let It Go,” a thumping up-tempo country pop tune about forgetting the small things or events from our past that lead to insecurities and indecisions of life.
“I Always try to give people different options as a way to look at things,” Eileen says. “Because, unfortunately, this world’s been up and down and if I can get them to think about things that maybe they haven’t before, then maybe they can “Let It Go” and get to a better place in their life.”
The remainder of LET IT GO, which was tracked in Nashville and produced by Travis Allen Childress, follows this concept with the strong opener “Bring On The Big,” a radio-ready anthem about looking forward to what life has to give us while “Bottle Your Crazy Up” smolders as it tells a story of a woman who moves back into the dating pool and finds Carey telling her friend to stop short of telling her life story. It’s the wisdom that comes along with a been-there, done-that mentality that only comes through life experience.
Along with the strong originals are a handful of covers, including a cover of The Motels 1982 hit “Only The Lonely,” The Katrina and the Waves 1985 hit “Walking On Sunshine,” and a cover of The Pretenders’ “Don’t Get Me Wrong” from 1986. Each song showcases a different side to the theme of LET IT GO and add a different layer of personality to the album. “Only The Lonely” comes at us with a retro-cool feel, “Walking On Sunshine” has that effervescent sheen of happiness that just makes you smile while “Don’t Get Me Wrong” is a smart modernized Pop/Country take on one of the 1980s most Iconic songs.
Eileen CareyEileen Carey is at the top of her game with LET IT GO. As such, everything about LET IT GO suggests an artist who has lived enough life to offer nuggets of wisdom and advice to anyone willing to listen.
Born and raised in Ohio but having called California home for over two decades, Eileen Carey’s career has grown from unknown to respected artist in that time. She’s won two Los Angeles Music Awards (2009’s Americana Album of the Year award for MOVE ON and 2010’s Producer’s Choice Award for Dance Single Of The Year) and also an South Bay (L.A.) Music Awards recipient. Eileen has been the artist Ambassador for the beauty salon chain Supercuts and has been recently sharing the stage with many of California’s premiere artists.
Carey was surrounded by music while growing up in the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio and became an accomplished drummer by the Age of 13. After growing up a musician throughout the region, Carey sensed the need to move on to bigger and better things than her small Ohio town could possibly hold for her so she set off for California in the late 1980s where she eventually studied acting, film and theater. The studying paid off as she has performed roles in films like Hoffa, Basic Instinct and the original Batman film, along with advertising campaigns like Ray Charles’ national Pepsi commercial as one of his original “Uh-Huh Girls.”
With a life as varied and interesting as Eileen Carey has lead, it’s no wonder she’d be drawn to songs like “Let It Go,” the kind of songs that remind so many people that life is good if you just choose to let it happen.
“I just try to give people a different way of thinking, a different outlet,” Says Eileen Carey. And she certainly does that with her fourth album of new music, LET IT GO.
  Put That Tequila Down and “Bottle Your Crazy Up!”
Hold the ice, Eileen Carey has good advice in her latest single. It’s mixed for good ole’ country ‘Dance Halls Days’ and already has the music charts ablaze.

“This world’s a rollercoaster of up and downs; through my music I try to get people to a better place in their life through a new perspective."- Eileen Carey

(PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, USA) September 3rd, 2014 – Whoa girl, put that tequila down! ‘Let It Go’ or you might do something you’ll regret! Instead, “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” as the lyrics suggest, in the latest offering from country artist Eileen Carey’s album, Let It Go. The song “Bottle Your Crazy Up” goes down smooth – as it is mixed into three flavors. Two versions are blended for “Dance Hall Days.” A third, bottled for radio currently has the country charts ablaze!
Eileen Carey's Bottle Your Crazy Up“Bottle Your Crazy Up” is the second single to drop off of Let It Go, which is Carey’s fourth album released since her debut in 2002. Critics have hailed Let It Go as her best work to date. The song follows the creative blueprint this award-winning songwriter always rolls out when composing, “It is the story in any song is key for me,” she explains. However, Carey is especially excited about this single as she offers more insight, “This single speaks of a woman telling another not to rebound after a breakup on her first date. She advises her friend not to drink the tequila, to be on her best behavior, save the crazy for later.”
The original version of “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” is currently ascending the country radio charts and has already moved into the Top 40 on the New Music Weekly Country Main Charts. The other two versions include a dance and club mix, which are slated for use in Eileen’s whirlwind radio and dance club tour which has dates booked through Kentucky and Tennessee from September 22nd, 2014 through September 26th, 2014.“Bottle Your Crazy Up” was penned by Bart Almond and Amy Dalley and produced by the talented Nashville/Los Angeles based Travis Allen Childress of Nashville Tracks.
There’s a reason Eileen Carey is one of California’s most popular country songwriters and performers; she hooks her songs with message and melody. “Bottle Your Crazy Up is fun-loving dance song with the boot-scooters in mind. It’s lyrically-loaded, line-dancing lover’s lick. So, hold the salt, lime and ice and before you take that drink… think! Put it down, Let it Go and “Bottle Your Crazy Up.” Save all that energy for the oak floors and Eileen’s dance hall tours!

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
