With a life so varied and interesting, award-winning singer/songwriter and loving mother Eileen Carey has encountered her share of highs and lows. She is well aware of the benefits of holding on to the good moments while letting go of the bad ones. It is this lesson, delivered to pop perfection on her recent record Let It Go, that inspired Carey to reach fans via The Music Mom.
The Music Mom reveals Carey’s desire to positively impact others by the sharing of her experiences and wisdom:
“The world is filled with ups and downs, so I want to help people see things in a more positive light and find a better place in life.”
One of the hardest things for humans to do is to let things go. When an artist like Carey comes along with an encouraging message to do just that, it is a welcome sight. Let It Go is a collection of songs that encourage listeners to break the ties that bind them to the past while fully embracing the present.
Make no mistake: the present has been quite kind to Carey, as New Music Weekly recently named her its 2017 Crossover Artist of the Year. Gracefully breaking down the barriers between country and pop, Carey was also the recipient of the Producer’s Choice Award for 2016 Female Country Artist of the Year at the Los Angeles Music Awards.
Credited by POPDOSE with “blending pop, country, and rock in a way that feels uniquely hers,” Carey was named alongside country heroes Tim McGraw, Kelsea Ballerini, and Old Dominion. According to NMW, the winners for the 2017 New Music Awards also include Ed Sheeran, Adele, and The Chainsmokers, who are top major label winners, while Carey was one of a handful of independent artists.
Having recently made her third consecutive appearance at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Carey’s “Bottle Your Crazy Up” reached #1 nationally in 2015, where it competed with major-label country performers.
Carey won The Academia Music Awards Best Country/Rock Song of the Year for “Bottle Your Crazy Up.” Akadamia.com called Carey’s composition and performance “a clever country jam with dulcet vocals and superb instrumentation, illustrating one of the most stringent performance standards we’ve encountered.”
Recorded in Nashville and produced by Travis Allen Childress, Let It Go is the embodiment of Carey’s mission to provide listeners with a uniquely positive approach to life: “This world has lots of ups and downs. If I can get people to let go of the bad stuff, hopefully they can get to a better place in life.” The positivity continues on Carey’s newest single, “In the Air,” as she counters recent terrorist attacks, racial violence, and global turmoil with her feel-good ode to the City of Love, Paris, France.
Carey’s last three music videos, “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” the feel-good summer release “Party at the Beach,” and “Faith” have accumulated more than 105,000 Youtube views. Her single “Faith” reached the very top of all the NMW country radio charts (main, indie, Internet), and also reached the very top spot in all the NMW AC and Top 40 charts. “Faith” also made an appearance on Music Row’s Country Breakout chart.
