Biography

EILEEN CAREY

Eileen Carey is a two-time Los Angeles Music Award winner, a South Bay (L.A.) Music Award recipient, and was just awarded Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year 2016, by the New Music Weekly. In January 2016, Eileen was featured on KCAL-9/CBS LA The Weekend Morning Show, after having been called called one of Los Angeles’s Top 10 Female Musicians by CBS LA.

 Her current album, Let It Go, her fourth career release, has had three chart singles, with the second, “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” topping all the New Music Weekly Country Charts, resulting in a NMW nomination as Female Country Artist of the Year; along with the A-list women of country music 2015. Once again topping the New Music Weekly country charts with her re-mix of a off her third career CD, the award winning Movin On, called "Faith." "Faith" reached beyond 'country' and Eileen was nominated for four awards by her peers including three crossover awards Top 40/Hot AC of the Year 2016. Eileen's YouTube channel has 110,000 plus views.

Among the many charts topped in 2014-2016, and awards nominated for Let It Go, including Best Country/Rock Track of the Year for “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” The Academia Music Award best describes Eileen's track as, “A clever country jam … dulcet vocals to superb instrumentation, illustrating one of the most stringent performance standards we've encountered.”

This past summer Eileen, besides her usual string of California county fairs and festivals, 4 years running on some, (OC Fair, SummerFest/Venice Beach for the Make-A-Wish Foundation San Diego County Fair), headlined a sold-out fundraiser for the non-profit FixNation, a cause very close to Eileen's heart, the rescue of feral cats and homeless animals, at the legendary Autry in Los Angeles, and hosted by Morgan Fairchild. An event visited by a number of celebrities and supported by Jay Leno's 4 passes to his garage. After having played Summerfest on Venice Beach for the third year in a row Eileen was the Spotlight Artist for the 2014 Fest.

In May of 2014 Eileen, who created the blog called TheMusicMom.com, a portal for information on raising children while rocking the house, was the country music mom representative in a Nick Jr. Docu-comedy called Take Me To Your Mother with actress Andrea Rosen, in an episode that included five other women musicians raising children called 'Andrea Gets In Tune.'

No stranger to Nashville, Eileen Carey has performed and toured the Nashville area for years. In 2015 she showcased at the Country Radio Seminar; and in June she played consecutive night at Toosties and Rippy's, and greeted her fans at the World Famous Tootsies table all five days of the CMA Festival at the new Music City Convention Hall.

Carey was surrounded by music while growing up in the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio and became an accomplished drummer by the Age of 13. After growing up a musician who played throughout the region, Carey sensed the need to move on to bigger and better things than her small Ohio town could possibly hold for her so she set off for California in the late 1980s where she eventually studied acting, film and theater. The studying paid off as she has performed roles in films like Hoffa, Basic Instinct and the original Batman film, along with advertising campaigns like her role in one of Ray Charles’ Diet-Pepsi commercials.” In 2012 Eileen was elected as an Artist Ambassador for the salon chain Supercuts which she maintained for two years.

"Eileen Carey is a singer-songwriter-vocalist in the Pop-Country genre who has emerged over the last few years as both an accomplished storyteller and effective, appealing stylist, while making music that deftly combines country influences with pop arrangements. Her songs also offer distinct, prominent messages about personal empowerment and emotional fulfillment."

Lyrics

That Town

Written By: Eileen Carey Paul Masvidal Marta Woodhull Philip Shenale

Old black GTO
Jimmy's on the horn and it's time to go
We got good at nothin' but hangin' out
Joe's drunk shootin' pool
Donna's at the jukebox
singin' tunes
at Billy's bar we call the shots

CHORUS
I just lean back I don't care
I got something else to be
That damn town's got nothin' on me now
If ya blink fast I'm not there
I got somewhere else to be
That town can't slow me down
I'll be all right, yeah, all right

I'll pack tonight break away clean
but another fool on my phone machine says
I won't get far out on my own
Well, if that's a friend, I don't need that kind
another weight I'll leave behind
and find my crowd on down the road

CHORUS
I just lean back I don't care
I got something else to be
That damn town's got nothin' on me now
If ya blink fast I'm not there
I got somewhere else to be
That town can't slow me down
I'll be all right, yeah, all right

Joey

Written By: Eileen Carey Paul Masvidal

Every night she sits by the bay
and dreams about a boy
in blue jeans
with wavy blond hair
and deep, dark eyes
the cutest smile
with plenty of style

CHORUS
Joey wishes upon a star
dances around the golden moon
and blows a kiss to the north
Love is coming my way
Yeah, love is coming my way

As she starts to walking away
there’s a silhouette glowing in the bay
She turns around
and there he stands
Oh, she can hardly breathe
when he touches her hand

CHORUS

Don’t forget to hold onto your dreams
You got to live your life
Never give up on your lucky dime
It’s just a matter of time

Joey wishes upon a star
dances around the golden moon
and blows a kiss to the north
Love is coming my way
(Repeat)
Love is love is love is
Love is here to stay
Love is here to stay

Hearts Of Time

Written By: Eileen Carey & Irene Tuomainen

Hearts of Time

He was a sailor from a far away land
And She lived her dreams building castles of sand
The tide turned around and they melt into one

Now the wind beaten boat rests safely at shore
And she dosen’t play hide and seek anymore

It was magic that found them
When the wind swirled around them
Look what came out of the blue

Deep inside their eyes there’s a story lying
And deep inside their hearts there’s no denying
They know without knowning
But They trust where their going
Its written by the Hearts of time

The moment I saw you It happened to me
Some things can’t change when they’re destined to be

It was magic that found us
When the wind swirled around us
Look what came out of the blue

Deep inside our eyes there’s a story lying
And deep inside our hearts there’s no denying
We know without knowing
But we trust where we’re going
Its written by the hearts of time

Life is like a merry go round
Just jump on board and go
Enjoy the ride while you can
When it stops You’ll Never know
chorus

Hollywood

Written By: Eileen Carey & Irene Tuomainen

Hollywood

Walking down Hollywood Blvd
Where streets are covered with famous stars
They’ve all been there
And here we are
Where it all began

Suddenly I’m gone with wind
Flowing on air with Fred and Ging
I’m crusing with Marilyn in a Limousine
Shinning like a girl’s best friend

Hollywood
Shine your light on me
Roll out the carpet
Cause I’m back upon the screen
Hollywood
Where my life is a dream
You make me laugh
You make cry
You take me places I never been

There’s Ratpacks and Rebles without a cause
And Make believe in the land of OZ
I’m walking with hands full of fairy dust
Holding on to now and then
Holding on

Chorus

Good Time Charlie

Written By: Eileen Carey & Treven Wong

Good Time Charlie

He’s hikin to LA
To be star one day
He’s gonna put his name
On the walk of fame
Plucks upon his banjo
Bangs upon his tin can
Plays his spoon and washboard
He’s a one-man band

Good Time Charlie just dreamin his life away
Good time Charlie He playing his tunes a OK
Good time Charlie just dreamin his life away
He knows he’s a dreamer and that’s OK

Lunch with Steve Spielberg
A Featured guest on Leno
He’s busted rhymes with P Diddy
doing time with J Lo
Gonna need an agent
To allocate his time
Gonna need a Lawyer
To read between the lines

Good Time Charlie just dreamin his life away
Good Time Charlie He’s playing his tunes a OK
Good time Charlie Just dreaming his life away
He knows he’s a dreamer and that’s OK

He’s livin the life one a day at a time
And always with a smile
Some say he’s out of his mind
But they punch a clock
To get what they got
Unhappy all the while
Searching for what they can’t find

Chorus

Lazy

Written By: Eileen Carey Marta Woodhull John Philip Shenale Paul Masvidal

Just look at you flat on your back in your sacred cave
Beer Bottles to the ceiling in a pile of trash
Big screen Oblivion looking silly in your cheese head hat
But a fool like me comes back

It used to be anytime anyplace in between
Just you and me and a table party for two
With c- span e- span x-y-z there’s nothing left for me
But starin at the man in the moon

Oh what a day
I want the best I only want the best of you
Your Lucky Day
And I’ll be giving and giving it all to you

When you’re a little bit lazy
And I’m a little Tired
I get a whole lot crazy
And You’re so lazy
I’m a little bit wild

I’ve been know to kick start an old engine or two
I’ll put my sweater to your leather it can’t get any better
I’ll take care of you
Guz a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do

Oh what a day
I want the best I only want the best of you
Your Lucky Day
And I’ll be giving giving it all to you

When you’re a little bit lazy
And I’m a little Tired
I get a whole lot crazy
And You’re so lazy
I’m a little bit wild
And a whole lot crazy for love

When you’re a little bit lazy
And I’m a little Tired
I get a whole lot crazy
I’m so inspired

Faith

Written By: Eileen Carey & Kathyrn Grimm

FAITH

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THESE GIRLS COMING UNGLUED
WASTING ALL THEIR TIME ON SOMEONE SO UNTRUE
WORKING OVERTIME TRYING TO GET THE WRONG MAN’S ATTENTION
STANDING IN HIS SHADOW PRETENDING THIS IS LIVING

C’MON GIRLS, YOU GOTTA HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN YOU
THE SUN IS SHINNING DOWN
GONNA CHASE AWAY THOSE BLUES

YOU’VE BEEN TRIPPING OUT ALL NIGHT
TRYING TO SHAKE AWAY THE DOUBT
JOHNNY WALKER AIN’T GONNA BE YOUR TICKET OUT,
YOUR TICKET OUT
HE PLAYS ON YOUR EMOTIONS, EVERYONE CAN SEE
THE ONLY THING HE’S GIVING YOU IS MISERY, MISERY

C’MON GIRLS, YOU GOTTA HAVE A LITTLE FAITH IN YOU
THE SUN IS SHINNING DOWN
GONNA CHASE AWAY THOSE BLUES

Break down!! OK GIRLS LISTEN UP NOW
HE’LL NEVER TRY TO WALK IN YOUR SHOES
TAKING A BACK SEAT WILL JUST MAKE YOU LOSE
THE MORE YOU GIVE, THE MORE HE’S GONNA TAKE
SO DRY THOSE TEARS, IT’S TIME TO WALK AWAY

CHORUS

Out with the Girls

Written By: Eileen Carey Kathryn Grimm

OUT WITH THE GIRLS

IT’S BEEN A LONG WEEK
OF WORKING TEN HOUR DAYS
SALLY FOLDS THE LAST LOAD
MARCY PITCHES THE HAY

ACROSS TOWN JODY’S DRESSING
FOR AN EVENING OF FUN
SHE’S BEEN GIVING AT THE OFFICE
SHE’S SO GLAD TO BE DONE

WORKING GIRLS OF ALL KINDS
HAVE EARNED THIS MOMENT OF BLISS
FROM THE WAITRESS AT JOE’S
TO THE ATTORNEY WITH THREE KIDS

IT’S JUST ANOTHER NIGHT OUT WITH THE GIRLS
FROM THE DOWNHOME TO THOSE IN DIAMONDS AND PEARLS
COME TOGETHER TO ESCAPE FROM THE GRIND
FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE BUT ONLY FUN ON THEIR MINDS

DAYS OF DREAMIN’ OF THIS
HAVE FINALLY COME TRUE
DANCING IN A NEW DRESS
AT THE WILDHORSE SALOON

FANCY CARS AND PICK UP TRUCKS
RHINESTONE BOOTS AND NIKES
DOLLAR BEERS AND CHAMPAGYNE
FROM THE POOR TO HIGH SOCIETY

WORKING GIRLS OF ALL KINDS
HAVE SLAVED ALL WEEK FOR THIS
FROM THE STAY AT HOME MOM
TO THE COMPANY PRESIDENT

CHORUS

THEY MINGLE AND DANCE
TO COUNTRY, HIP HOP AND ROCK
NO CELL PHONES IN SIGHT
AS THEY ALL ENJOY TONIGHT

CHORUS X 2
