Brenda Carsey

Brenda Carsey is a Los Angeles-based vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Carsey has been performing since the age of five, from choirs, orchestras, and marching bands to national anthem performances to rock, pop, folk, hip hop, and electronic groups (Feral Kizzy, Centuries, Cesar Saez), stage shows (Cabaret Versatile), and solo projects (Brenda Carsey & the Awe, Side Show, eminent.ruth). Carsey's primary self-accompanying instruments are piano/keys and acoustic guitar. You can currently catch her out playing live solo and with her band Brenda Carsey & the Awe.

Brenda Carsey & the Awe deliver a funky, energetic show, seamlessly mixing a unique blend of Alternative Soul, R&B, and Progressive Trip Hop. The group is led by songstress and keyboardist Brenda Carsey and grooved out by the Awe-some rhythm section featuring a line up of rotating musicians. Carsey’s Voice is, in a word, uninhibited, mixing a syrupy sweet sound with a beautiful darkness and a vocal range with a potential of virtuosity. This Los Angeles, CA based artist has played at heavy hitting music festival Lightning in a Bottle (2017), Feed LA Festival (2016), and Echo Park Rising Festival (2014, 2015, 2016)! Carsey has toured the entire Western US from San Diego to Seattle, to Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and also Nashville and New York. She has also grooved and swooned on the stages of The Hotel Cafe, The Teragram Ballroom, Mrs. Fish, Good Times at Davey Wayne's, Harvard & Stone, The Federal Bar, The Lost Knight, and The Virgil (to name a few). She will stop you in your tracks with poetic lyrics, fluid melodies, engaging chords progressions, funky rhythms, and a voice filled with passion and soul.

Carsey is set to release her first full-length studio album July 16th, 2017 with a release party and performance on the main stage at The Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, CA! The album features the Awe and was engineered and co-produced by Brian Frederick of Hybrid Studios and Stacks FX.
