Cari Ray & The Shaky Legs

Musical partnerships come in many forms and achieve different levels of success. You work with other musicians, and the whole you create from your individual parts feels like it moves the material along in a way you couldn’t on your own. But once in a while, there’s a pairing that rises to achieve something special, almost magical.

Collings 01 as she was upon return: dirty, cracked top, lifting bridge.

I like stories. Like hearing them. Like telling them. Like making them up. But it’s better yet when a good story actually happens to you. As I left home on a sunny Wednesday morning a few weeks ago, I had no idea the story that was in store for me that day. Continue reading →

“Strong singers figure out how to play a few chords to get by.  Great fret-masters eke out a tepid set of vocals for the same reason.  Then we sit down and watch someone [like Cari Ray] who can nail them both.” – Donovan Wheeler, National Road Magazine

 

Cari Ray is a storyteller who who tells her tales through song; songs that manifest themselves in one’s mind in a way that transports you to somewhere in the early 20th Century.

Her influences as a writer and performer are front and center in her original material, spanning a wide range of early american music… a helping of acoustic blues, a little folk, a rasher of ragtime, and a slight flavor of old-time country. Her live show serves it up handily with quick wit, tasty fingerstyle guitar, and a huge, evocative voice.

She continues to draw accolades for songwriting, most recently with her track “It’s About Me” winning the blues songwriting competition at the Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival and selection to the Dripping Springs 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. With a unique blend of heart and grit, this powerhouse entertainer just doesn’t miss.
