Brenda Carsey (with a short-lived stage name "eminent.ruth") is a Long Beach-based singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Since the age of five, Carsey has been active in the world of music. Her youth filled her ears with the sounds of soul, blues, and hip-hop, which was responsible for forming her unexpectedly soulful voice and melodies. Her late high school and college years filled her ears with the enormous spectrum of rock and electronic music, both of which were responsible for forming her structure, edge, and experimentation and her passion for rhythm patterns and bass.
Brenda is constantly growing and changing and it shows in her music. She has a strong desire to express thoughts that most suppress and to bring a positive and sincere message to the world. She is currently involved in two musical endeavours:
Her solo project and band in which she puts no limits on herself in regards to genre and what sounds she is capable of creating. Sounds of alternative rock, blues, trip hop, and rhythm and blues, just to name a few, can be heard in Carsey's music presented in two different experiences: acoustic, featuring Carsey on guitar and piano playing solo or along with bass and drum; and Side Show, more of an electronic performance featuring originally produced beat compositions, piano, and voice).
Her other endeavor is a five piece rock/blues band called Feral Kizzy in which she plays keys and backing vocals.
Carsey has also performed with hip hop artist Distract-Ion both on his record "M.I.N.D." and live.
She has also worked with producer Jason Johann of Good Lyfe Addikts and was featured on three different singles.
With three albums under her belt, Carsey is now writing and preparing to record her fourth album, set to release in summer 2012.
We shall see where the future takes Miss Brenda Carsey.
