Biography

Carrie Haber has been described as "expressively theatrical with a darker edge" and "totally memorable".

From Malta, now residing in London, Carrie began developing her musical talents at the tender age of 5 with piano, incorporating songwriting and singing by ten, and a first public performance at 16. Carrie's songwriting demonstrates her ongoing fascination with the human experience, the hypothetical question, and personality disorder. She has been compared to Tori Amos, Bjork and Regina Spektor though she is well on the way towards developing her own unique artistry, sound and performance style.

With regular gigging around London and Europe Carrie is steadily attracting enthusiastic fans to her music and performances. She has gigged in France, Denmark, Sicily, Los angeles, and regularly in Malta, including support act for Bob Geldof and The Feeling, and as the feature act for Sting's 'after party'. Carrie was awarded Best Songwriter and Best Female Artist in the Malta Music Awards 2009. Shaun Grech from 'Life & Style' (Malta), wrote, "Carrie is gifted with an amazing vocal range, mature songwriting and piano playing skills... destined for success beyond our shores".

After seeing Carrie perform in LA, producer/songwriter Patrick Leonard (Madonna, Roger Waters, Mariah Carey, Natasha Beddingfield) became smitten. During a recording session at A&M studios Patrick told Carrie "You are scary!" referring to the fact that she had just recorded both the vocals and the piano part of her song "Naked" in one perfect take! Right now he and Carrie are in discussion regarding further recording opportunities 2010.

In 2009 Carrie released her EP 'It's Complex' with a video of the single 'Me Oh My'. Carrie's main focus in 2010 will be writing and co-writing, a UK tour, building the fan base and developing her show.

Lyrics

Me Oh My

Written By: Carrie Haber

I've got to tell you how I feel
It's so unreal, unreal
I've got to tell you how I feel
If only you would believe

Me oh my
I thought this would go by so fast
But it didn't, but it didn't, but it didn't - did it (x2)
I must tell you my one secret

I've got to tell you how I feel
It's so surreal, surreal
Like growing towers out of beans
The heat is killing every breeze

Me oh my
I thought this would go by so fast
But it didn't, but it didn't, but it didn't - did it (x2)
I must tell you my one secret

The rain will wash away our memories
The sun will melt our patience till it's drained
That's why I won't hide
I must tell you ...

I've got to tell you how I feel
It's so unreal, unreal
I've got to tell you how I feel
If only you would believe

Me oh my
I thought this would go by so ..

Me oh my
I thought this would go by so fast
But it didn't, but it didn't, but it didn't - did it (x2)
I must tell you my one secret
