ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Carley’s debut CD, "Set Sail," was recorded at Steve Collins’ Troubadour Studio in Lockhart and features Carley on vocals, guitars, double bass, mandolin, keyboards, banjo and pump organ. Konya and Collins (Deadman) add a variety of sounds; Daniel "Deemo" Moss (The Blue Hit) plays cello and Katy Rose Cox (Shotgun Party) violin. The result is an eclectic mix of ten songs that showcase the range of Carley’s songwriting and performing talent.

Carley’s music is very Kerrville, very backyard Austin (and environs) – as gentle as Winter (the friendliest wolf you ever petted), as pure as snow, as honest as Abe himself. This tiny woman with the little girl speaking voice and womanly singing voice is always surprising – one day in native dress, the next in high fashion formals – and always disarming, bringing peace and joy wherever she goes.

"Set Sail" opens with a song about Carley’s own "Gypsy Soul Blues" – this is a woman whose chief frustration is not getting her songs and her spirit out to a broader audience, yet! "To Bee" may sound lighthearted, but Carley has spent countless hours working with beehives to save the vital critters so they can keep pollinating our flowers and things. Every song tells a story – but the best way to experience Carley’s music is up close and in person. She WILL sing in your backyard – and mend your fences while she’s changing strings, or instruments.

Singer/Songwriter
Carley's music and songs are a refreshing break from the major label grind that tries to define and control music strictly for their own profits. Her love for music is genuine and she is motivated primarily by a desire to share it with others. Her original music is unique and comes from within, rather than following behind a popular bandwagon. She uses "off color" minor scales in the melodies, and suspends the notes while singing with her soft calm and sometimes melancholic voice. The rhythms she chooses swell and subside with the mood. All of this adds an etherial almost mystical air to her music and is truly a wonderful experience.
