ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ABOUT "CALL ME HOME"...

"Call Me Home," the second album from award-winning singer-songwriter Edie Carey is appropriately titled as the record calls Carey back to her roots in pop, the music that inspired her as a child. "People often assume I was raised on Pete Seeger and Joni Mitchell, and while my parents were fairly well-versed in folk, I thought it far too embarassing to like what they liked," jokes Carey. "So instead, I escaped to my room, rolling up my 10-year-old eyes, and began creating dance videos to the likes of Debbie Gibson, Mister Mister, and Madonna. I had such an incredible sense of freedom and abandon at that age...I wanted to recapture that feeling, and lace it into the music I am making now. I tried to conjure up what it was that would inspire me to dress up in sequins and start performing splits for unsuspecting relatives...that's always a good motivation for a song, right?"

While Carey conveys that playful sense of abandon with songs like "Disco Ball Heart" (Track 1) and "Come Close" (Track 6), she also allows a glimpse of her more serious side, as she conjures emotions from everyday images she carves in haunting detail ("Violently," track 4; "August," track 2). While one story brings home the terror of confessing love to a roommate over a morning bowl of Wheaties ("Call Me Home," track 8), another places you behind the eyes of a mother who has lost her only daughter ("Black Wool Dress," track 9). The range of emotions as as wide as the range of styles she uses to convey them.

"Fall or Fly," track 3 off of "Call Me Home" won Edie a spot as a semi-finalist in "Roxygen on Oxygen," a music competition sponsored by Oprah Winfrey's website for women, Oxygen.com, and was heard on MTV's "Road Rules." Another track, "Come Close," was featured on the WB's "Charmed."

Produced by Tom Cangemi, "Call Me Home" features such acclaimed musicians as drummer Shawn Pelton (Shawn Colvin, Saturday Night Live), bassist T-Bone Wolk (Shawn Colvin, Carly Simon, M2M), and special appearances by ModMusic Records' Trina Hamlin and Red House Recording Artist, Cliff Eberhardt.

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 last 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 "****."

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.

Amazing, never going to leave my cd player.
This was my first journey into the world of Edie Carey, and I am ever so thankful that I picked up Call Me Home. This cd is never going to leave my cd player. It has everything from wonderful upbeat folk goodness to slower melody type songs with beautiful lyrics. The entire thing has beautiful lyrics, and songs. Amazing! Five stars!

Edie's melodies follow me everywhere I go...
I can't stop listening to this CD. Edie's melodies seem to be following me everywhere I go, whether that is in a work meeting, walking on the street or in the shower. She's really testing her wings in Call Me Home - and showing off her true colors and amazing range. She brings anyone's worst fear to life in the heartbreaking Black Wool Dress and then makes you rock & roll in Come Close. There was a time when Edie's advice in Fall or Fly was the only advice I needed in dealing with affairs of the heart - and when Nothing Else was the hardest reality to face. Every song touches a different corner of the human soul - the ones that you keep hidden, the ones that you wear on your sleeve, the ones you never knew you had. Do yourself a favor - buy yourself this CD and start every day with it!
