Emotional, intelligent and human is how Edie Carey describes her music that you can tune in to hear on our live, Take 10 on Friday, Feb. 9 during the noon hour on the Gazette News Facebook platform. Carey sings and plays guitar in a manner she jokingly describes as, "Ugly cry-inducing music. My shows are pretty emotional. That's why I inject a healthy dose of humor into them to balance it out."

Carey, who has been a professional full-time musician since 1999 is a world traveler when it comes to her performances which she said include many memorable moments.

"I remember singing in Toronto, 12 years ago. I was singing a song about my dad. It's called, 'If I Start to Cry.' I looked down into the audience and watched this man with tears streaming down his face walk out of the room. I learned later that his father was dying from cancer," she said.

The backstory to that song is that it's about her parents' divorce when she was very small. Carey said that song for her really touched a nerve and is her favorite song that she composed.

"It was one of the most honest songs that I've written and I'm glad it touches people the way it does. My purpose as a songwriter is to keep connecting with my audience," she said.

Carey has put out nine albums and continues to write and perform music here in the Pikes Peak region and across the world. She said her goals are simple but yet complex, "I want to be great singer and songwriter and keep connecting with my audience and my fans."

Carey will definitely touch a nerve for you with her robust singing and songwriting skills on Friday's live Take 10.
