Review of Inner Frequency - Surge
on April 12, 2009

Dallas, Texas quarter Inner Frequency come barreling out of Texas with their latest EP, Surge. If you haven't heard of Inner Frequency before then you're in for a pleasant surprise. Vocalist Cara Young has a smooth a smoky alto voice that is part Annie Lennox and part Johnette Napolitano, and the band has crafted a tight, melodic sound around her voice that is radio ready.

Imagine Maroon 5 with just a touch of angry chick chic of Ani DiFranco and you have the sound of the opening track, Big Talker. Written by Cara Young, who worked for a label in Nashville in the 1990's, Big Talker focuses on the glory hounds who work in the industry. Young acknowledges that there are a lot of good, hard working people in the industry, but the folks who make big promises to gain access to an artist and then never follow through are still out there. Sometimes, written by guitarist Luke Carnevale, is the song that got things started for Inner Frequency in 2005. The song starts out in happy times but sinks into a confused sort of depression. The EP closes out with Satellite, a solid song but perhaps not as dynamic or interesting as the first two.

Inner Frequency has a distinctive sound that will garner attention. Cara Young has a voice you'll find instantly recognizable once you've heard it. The songwriting team of Young and Carnevale shows real promise, and we at Wildy's World hope to hear more from them in the future.

""You know a band is going places, when you go to see them for the first time and every song rocks""

Inner Frequency - Ginger Man, 5/24/08
This is a fun band to see live. Cara Young has a great vocal style, that’s all her own and can at times becomes hypnotic -sometimes reminiscent of Grace Slick. The band and their music have a fresh rocking groove that comes off well live, with an even mystical sound. Other members are Luke Carnevale (acoustic guitar), Brad Brock (bass), and Jon Mosig (drums). Songs from their new EP - including “I Like You Better,” “Makes Me Happy” and “Exposed” -kept everyone in the beer garden hopp’n.
For most of the show, Inner Frequency played originals written by Young and Carnevale, as well as an interesting version of “Tainted Love.” You know a band is going places, when you go to see them for the first time and every song rocks. (WiL Wesch)

""Singer Cara Young has that sultry, Terri Bozzio-like sensuality down pat, while guitarist Luke Carnevale (great name) mines '80s gold such as The Cars and The Records with prowess to spare""

Now that Black Tie Dynasty has gone and broken up, those looking for some retro, new wave sounds might want to turn their attention to a relatively new local quartet, Inner Frequency. Surge, the band's sophomore EP, hits the streets next week and the band is having at CD release party at Jack's Backyard on Friday, February 13, to celebrate.


Singer Cara Young has that sultry, Terri Bozzio-like sensuality down pat, while guitarist Luke Carnevale (great name) mines '80s gold such as The Cars and The Records with prowess to spare. Add in an interesting mix of jazz and modern pop and Inner Frequency (despite the fey moniker) is capable of defying easy categorization.

Since 2006, the duo of Young and Carnevale have been mixing and matching rhythm sections until finally settling on Brad Brock and Jon Mosig a year ago.

Sure, February 13 might be a stereotypically unlucky day (especially for those movie buffs who choose to catch the umpteenth remake of Friday the 13th in theaters) but Inner Frequency hopes to bring a little good fortune by sharing songs like "Big Talker," "Sometimes" and "Satellite" with a well-lubricated, relatively non-superstitious crowd.

"Inner Frequency in the OC (Oak Cliff that is)"

March 6, 2009

Inner Frequency knows the road to success can be considerably shorter when you have the word-of-mouth love of an area like Oak Cliff.

The five-piece rock band has been working the OC music scene for about a year, regularly “gigging” at popular new venues such as Eno’s Pizza Tavern on Bishop Avenue and Jack’s Backyard on Commerce Street.

Since 2005, lead singer Cara Young and guitarist Luke Carnevale have been building their band, which now includes drummer Jon Mosig and bassist Brad Brock. At the behest of friends and fans, the four have started migrating to Dallas’ artsy hubs in order to gain a stronger fan base.

“All of the people over there kept telling me that we needed to come down because they needed music in Oak Cliff and Bishop Arts,” Young said. “We’re friends with a blues band that set us up with Eno’s.”

Young said she called Jack’s Backyard at the request of several of her friends who live in the Oak Cliff area. Last month, the band celebrated the release of its second EP, Surge, at the popular bar and live music venue.

“I know so many people who live down this direction,” said Young, an Uptown resident who works as a personal trainer at the Hilton Anatole. “I know you live where you live, but I feel like I belong to this area of town because I work so close to right there.”

Jack’s general manager, Kathy Corbin, said highlighting new local bands is exactly what the venue is out to do.

“I researched them online, thought they had a great sound, and checked out other places they were playing,” Corbin said. “It seemed like a good fit, and they came in here and were great. We had a lot of new faces that night, and it’s always great to get a band that brings in a lot of new people.”

Corbin said that while Jack’s features a lot of seasoned artists, it generally features only local bands on the weekends.

“Oak Cliff is absolutely a great place for a band to start,” Corbin said. “We have an open mic night on Sundays that we encourage people to come to. That’s how we get to know newer players and put some people together.”

Carnevale, who lives in Duncanville, said Jack’s is a favorite venue. Inner Frequency is scheduled to play there again April 10.

“It sounds so good. They have really good sound there, but it’s still so intimate,” he said of Jack’s. “The experience you get from gigging, you can’t get that from just practicing.”

Matthew Spillers, owner of Eno’s, said he is experimenting with bands to find a sound that fits the restaurant space.

“They had a really cool sound and definitely had plenty of energy,” Spillers said of Inner Frequency. “We’re just so small. They have kind of a rock ’n’ roll element to them, so within our brick walls, it’s just bouncing noise everywhere.”

He said he is working on getting the upstairs area of Eno’s open in order to accommodate a heavier sound.

“Bishop Arts definitely embraces live music, but I think it really gears itself to a certain type of music,” Spillers said. “Lower Greenville and Deep Ellum have a completely different demographic than what’s over here. I would definitely say this area is geared to more jazz-related, or more of a folk-related types of music.”

With a polished new EP and a bigger, fuller sound, Young said Inner Frequency is going to continue its forward motion.

“I don’t want this to be a side thing. I want to get it in the middle,” Young said. “We’re at that point where we’re ready to make a really big leap.”

"Review of The Lemmontree Project"

I think it's an electrifyingly amazing thing when you hear about people from varying (and often contrasting) backgrounds, skills, and collected visions, coming together via the internet to produce terrific music. What's more amazing is that, in actual fact, it doesn't actually happen that often. Sure you can have Mr and Mr, Miss and Miss, collaborate on something here and there, but to actually convey astonishment to 'all who fall inadvertantly within hearing distance' is really quite something else! The thing is, Cara Young, Luke Carnevale, Bruce Crocker, and Julie Licata did just that when they came together via the cyber-highway and brought their varying backgrounds, skills, and collected visions into sharp focus as pop/rock ensemble 'Inner Frequency'. --

" The Lemmontree Project EP "
Genre: rock
reviewed by Madalyn Sklar on May 7, 2007

This Dallas foursome caught my attention with their EP, “The Lemmontree”. I love all the tunes, especially “Preacher Man.” I deem this CD creative with refreshing tunes that are so enjoyable I catch myself grooving along to the beat. I can’t wait to hear more from Inner Frequency!

"Music Morsels"

Inner Frequency - Lemontree Project

Dallas’ Inner Frequency creates folk fueled pop rock that has a delicate intensity with the emotive vocals of Cara Young. A mostly acoustic guitar back drop which still flaunts some wonderful fingerstyle plucking is driven by a tight rhythmic groove. “Inner Frequency” and “Yeah Yeah” pulse with diva pop vibes and haunting melodies. This is a very innovative five song taste leaving you yearning for a full fledged CD.

Bio

Sexy and sultry, smooth and smoky, sensual...all of these words have been used to describe the voice of Cara Young, lead singer of Inner Frequency. Combined with the band's adventurous rhythms and new wave feel, their tunes are catchy and implant earworms in the listener's ear.

Inner Frequency is Cara Young on vocals, Jon Mosig leading the rhythm section on drums and some synths, Bryan Plemons addin' some funk to the groove, and newest member, Billy Roberts, rockin' out on the electric guitar with flyin' fingers. The band sometimes mixes some sitar into the live shows (provided by Mark C. Lowe) for some added flavor.

The band has experienced several evolutions over the past few years, moving from coffee shops to bars & festival stages and becoming more electric than acoustic. Highlights from the past 5 years for the band include independently releasing 3 EPs, competing in the Land Shark Battle of the Bands last year (finishing 6th in the nation!), opening for Eddie Money, appearing on Good Morning Texas, and performing at Taste Addison and the Deep Ellum Arts Festival.
