New Music: Edie Carey – Rise

Edie Carey is a country folk singer songwriter from the US. I only discovered her for the blog back at the end of March, but this is already the third track of hers that I’ll be sharing. Part of that is because she’s about to release an album, The Veil, but mostly it’s because I love her authentic and intimate approach to music. Her latest is no exception. It’s called Rise.

Rise has a suitably uplifting feel. Its story starts with heartbreak, with Edie’s vocal pleading and frustrated. Things quickly develop to a swelling chorus with a soft country rock feel while the message remains positive – you don’t have to carry your burdens alone. There are those around you who want to help.
