We love good music and spare no opportunity of listening and reviewing any latest release. And the most recent one we came across is ‘Feel Fearless’ by Carolee Rainey. Rainey is exceptionally talented singer and songwriter. Before moving on to the album let’s have an insight of her career till date.
In an earlier lifetime of performing, Rainey did a lot of busking, playing bars, hotels and cruise ships. There were publishing deals, almost record deals, voiceovers in movies and a job as A&R for Atlantic Nashville in LA. Eventually, the tides changed, and Rainey found herself immersed in a life of painting and photography, exploring the solitude and realness of a painters life.
After a friend took her to a Rickie Lee Jones concert, Rainey found herself transformed by the performance, and immediately began writing her own songs. “It was the next stop on the train for me” she says. Tight backing musicians create magnetic listenable support to Rainey, including Doug Yowell, Richard Hammond, Thad DeBrock, Everett Bradley and Clifford Carter on acoustic piano and keys. The EP was produced by Grammy and Emmy award winning producer Robert L. Smith at Defy Recordings and Avatar Studios. She asks that listeners tune in to her songs because “they’ve got life, wisdom and lightness even if they can get lonely and dark.”
Now coming back to the album it self. It’s a 6 track album. Even though all the 6 tracks are beautifully done but the one that impressed me so much is “Mystic Rose”. The song starts with a melodious and engaging tone. You will feel compelled to listen to the track. One thing you will feel not only in this track but throughout the album is dynamic and inspiring voice of Rainey and particularly in this track it also has a strong vocal projection. And the variation of her vocals makes it more interesting and appealing.
The next track that impressed me is “Feel”. The track is simply done and not overly complex. The chorus is impressive, the pitch range varies, making it rich and engaging. Overall the Album definitely is professional and creative. We find it extremely good and the singer has talent and the music, lyrics and production everything has been done exceptionally well throughout this album. I would say listening to the music was a real entertainment and I am sure you would put it to repeat mode.
