EDIE CAREY & SARAH SAMPLE to Hold 'Til The Morning' Album Release Show
Award-winning singer/songwriters Edie Carey & Sarah Sample weave their distinctive and yet perfectly blended voices in an intimate, harmony laden recording, 'Til The Morning. Edie & Sarah will celebrate the album's release with a show at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18 at Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen St., NYC.
Edie & Sarah's June 18 show will highlight tracks from 'Til The Morning, as well as fan favorites from Sarah's albums Someday, Someday and Born To Fly and Edie's albums Bring The Sea and Another Kind Of Fire.
In 2010, after releasing her third album and having her second child, Sarah Samplerealized that most of her music-making at home involved singing to her children. It felt only natural that her next record should embrace the music that was at the core of her motherhood experience. At this time, her friend Edie Carey was in the throes of a two-year struggle with infertiity following a near-fatal experience while on tour. Sarah soon became one of Edie's main sources of support, and their friendship deepened.
Edie welcomed a son in 2012 (thanks to winning a $16K IVF cycle at a raffle!), and soon the two friends began hatching plans to make Sarah's album idea come true. They wanted to not only honor the quiet moments of parenting, but also to pay tribute to the struggles of infertility, recognizing the circuitous and painful journey many people must travel to become parents. 'Til The Morning carries a message of love, comfort, and solace for any listener.
Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice and intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on -- and off -- stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Edie's wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel they have just spent an evening with a very close friend. Edie has performed across the US, Canada, and the UK since 1999. Paste Magazine declared, "Edie Carey is gifted with one of those voices that could sound great singing anything. Vulnerable and pleasing, Carey draws us into her world, where we find we have a lot in common."
According to the Utah Statesman, "From the way that Sarah Sample handles herself, one would think she'd been born on the stage." Three albums, an EP, and years of touring into her career, Sarah Sample proves she's no trend-chasing flash in the pan. Listening to her songs, one hears true commitment to a high quality body of work. Sarah has played the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest mainstage, sung on the Cayamo Cruise, won first place in the AYL Singer/Songwriter Awards, and was a finalist at Kerrville and Telluride.
