Album Notes
Washington Post review: ...Creed has a lovely voice...that brings a certain purity and elegance to the performances on "Peace of Wild Things." In fact, most of the songs wouldn't sound out of place on vintage recordings by Baez or Collins, whether it's the reflective title track, written by Paul Reisler, or the antiwar anthem "I Didn't Raise My Boy to Be A Soldier," orchestrated for solo piano by Creed; or the folk chestnut "Shady Grove."

When the mood is intimate and tender as on "Who Do I Love?" a mother's ode to her child, Creed's voice is as warm as it is naturally tuneful. She displays her whimsical side, too, most notably while teaming with duet partner Randy Barrett for "Band of Twelve," a Bob Devlin-penned novelty that hinges on its chorus: "Jesus had a band of twelve/But he never made a record deal."

As on previous recordings, Creed is surrounded by kindred spirits in the studio. Many well-known performers in the Washington area contribute to the album's acoustic charms, including Zan McLeod on guitar/bouzouki, Sue Richards on Celtic harp and Jody Marshall on hammered dulcimer. - Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

This album, released on Azalea City Recordings, has won a coveted Washington Area Music Association annual award (a Wammie) for top Contemporary Folk CD, and has also charted repeatedly on a folk DJ listserve which compiles national and international playlists.

Carey has won Wammies for her vocals and also First Place awards from the Songwriters' Association of Washington Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. The songs she writes and the covers she chooses to record are sometimes inspiring, sometimes irreverent and downright quirky, but always thought-provoking without being heavy-handed. Give a listen and see for yourself!

What a wonderful artist! Carey Creed is able to find just the right inflections for each type of song. "Peace of Wild Things" is haunting and beautiful. I hope to hear much more from Carey Creed!!
