Your crusty chronicler generally does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their “List” format, it was impossible not to be open-minded. So, with that spirit of unity and teamwork in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.
In this edition, we peruse Eileen Carey’s Let It Go. But first, for those not on your indie artists, Eileen Carey is an award-winning Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter and musician. On this artistic effort she is ably assisted by several supporting artists including: John McDuffie (steel guitar and lap steel), Grant G”nick Nicholas (trumpet), John Heinrich (steel sax and clarinet) and Byron Holly and Heather Wiggins (background vocals).
Carey explains the thought behind this disc: “I always try to give people different options as a way to look at things. Because, unfortunately, this world’s been up and down and I if can get them to think about things that maybe they haven’t before, then maybe they can ‘Let It Go’ and get to a better place in life.”
