One of the hardest things for humans to do is to let things go. When an artist like Eileen Carey comes along with an encouraging message to do just that, it is a welcome sight. The award-winning California-based singer/songwriter’s fourth album, 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.
The present has been quite kind to Carey, as she is riding the wave of being named the 2016 National Radio Hits Favorite Female Country Artist of the Year and the New Music Weekly Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year. 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.
With a life so varied and interesting, 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 Let It Go and Carey’s newest material, that Carey wants to teach fans.
