Album Notes
With brilliant creative intrigue and regarded as one of the city’s best singer/songwriters, Carolyn Striho made her name fronting the dynamic Detroit Energy Asylum and her work with Patti Smith. And in the last couple dozen years as a solo performer, Carolyn has gained a strong reputation for charismatic, high-energy stage performances with her songs, vocals, guitar and keyboards. Wildly original, melodic and passionate, Striho’s music has been described as being written “from the silver edge of midnight” (All-Music Guide, USA) Besides her infamous live shows at many festivals, clubs, art galleries in the region and Canada, Carolyn’s played Europe and Japan several times. Carolyn’s also played many shows in Toronto and London U.K. with Patti Smith and opening for Steve Earle in England as well. Nominated for nearly sixty Detroit Music Awards in recent years, Carolyn Striho won Outstanding Rock/Pop Songwriter of the Year two years in a row - 2016 and 2015.
Other big award wins include Carolyn’s Outstanding Acoustic/Americana album of the Year 2014 for “Word Attack” and Outstanding Rock/Pop album of the Year 2010 for “Honesty.”
Carolyn is best known for her new music and catchy, magically intense live shows and songwriting. Her live performances with her latest band, her legendary shows and writing fronting her well-known Detroit Energy Asylum band, with Patti Smith, and her punk rock/art rock years with Rough Cut and the Cubes, as well as performing with Don Was and the Was Not Was Band, Iggy Pop, opening for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, The Ramones and the Slits, Carolyn’s brand new music is being remixed for a new CD coming out soon.
Carolyn won a Billboard Magazine Honorable Mention for the Song of the Year for “Enchante”.” Carolyn’s performed in Tokyo and Osaka for 2 months and had yet another Italy tour in August 2014 as she has been played 6 overseas tours
“The delightful difficulty people have in pigeonholing Striho was underscored in one of Carolyn’s Detroit Music Award trophies in 2010, a startling victory for her techno remix of “Promised Land” from her Outstanding CD of the Year in Rock/Pop, “Honesty.” (Ben Edmonds, Detroit Free Press/Mojo Magazine).
