Colorado-based Edie Carey has been singing at festivals, colleges, and listening rooms across the US, Canada and Europe since 1998, performing alongside Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Jonatha Brooke, and Shawn Colvin. She's co-written with and had songs cut by Chely Wright and Shawn Mullins. She’s also been a featured artist on PRI’s Mountain Stage. Her latest offering, paper rings: 8 love stories, is a moving collection of songs commissioned by her fans for their loved ones. Her prior album, a duo project with Sarah Sample, won Best Children's Album in the 2014 Independent Music Awards. Carey is currently writing songs for a new album due out in 2021.
"...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 off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend. “Bare of self-pity and full of down-to-earth revelation... a little country, a little adult-contemporary, and a lot of fine music.”
