Michelle H. loves this song, so she asked Cari to do an unplugged version after a recent show…here’s the clip…
Hear a live version of the song that got Cari’s CD, Swagger, accepted for play on Pandora! Played on Cari’s beautiful custom Fairbanks F-20 Gold Sparkle guitar.
Cari’s latest release is now live on Pandora Radio. That means you can create a “Cari Ray Radio” station and hear tracks from Swagger along with other great artists from Shawn Colvin to Bonnie Raitt to The Indigo Girls.
“One of our very favorite singer/songwriters to ever come through Logan Street. Outstanding vocals, harmonies, musicianship and great songwriting. Clever and relatable lyrics and storytelling.” -John Gilmore, Logan Street Sanctuary
Cari Ray’s eclectic Americana blend offers a little something for everyone. A hint of blues, a little folk-rock, and a slight flavor of old-time country. And her live show delivers it all handily, with quick wit, infectious groove, and a warm, inviting voice. With a unique blend of heart and grit, this con-summate entertainer is winning over audiences of all ages
One spin of Cari Ray’s “SWAGGER,” produced by Country Blues legend-in-the-making, Reverend Peyton (of Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band), will explain what all the fuss is about. With her 3rd release, the blues roots that seeped through on past recordings are front and center like never before. Here’s what Rev. had to say about working with Ray. “Cari Ray’s songwriting is clever and catchy. Her voice is huge, seriously huge. I had such a great time producing her record, Swagger. Her talent shines bright.”
Cari continues to draw accolades for songwriting, most recently with her track “It’s About Me” winning the blues songwriting competition at the 2015 Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival. Solo or with her band, playing for 20 or 2000, Cari finds a way to strike a perfect balance between energy and intimacy.
