Devoid of ostentation, Carey Slade’s voice reflects her character: honest, straightforward and humble, but not in any way meek. Slade emerges from a scene saturated in demure songbirds and is capable of taking the fellas on with her fierce combination of rock, folk and blues.
Her singing style brings to mind the earth mothers of rocknroll like Janice Joplin, Carly Simon and Loretta Lynn. She speaks with timeless wisdom in songs like “Walk On” and acknowledges the futility of all our wisdom in the face of love in songs like “Endless Circles” and “Wasn’t My Fault.”
