Brenda Carsey is a Los Angeles-based vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Carsey has been studying music and performing since the age of five, from choirs, orchestras, and marching bands to national anthem performances to rock, pop, folk, hip hop, and electronic groups (Feral Kizzy, Cesar Saez), stage shows (Cabaret Versatile), and solo projects (Brenda Carsey & the Awe, Side Show, eminent.ruth). Carsey's primary self-accompanying instruments are piano and guitar. You can currently catch her out playing live solo and with her band Brenda Carsey & the Awe.
Brenda Carsey delivers an engaging, energetic show, seamlessly mixing a unique blend of Alternative Soul, R&B, Progressive Rock, and Trip Hop. Carsey has an unmistakable sound that is modern and unique while some how simultaneously a retro call to music from the 1950's, the late 1960's/early 1970's, and the 1990's. Carsey plays both piano and guitar. She performs both solo and as a full band under the name "Brenda Carsey & the Awe". As a band, the group is led by songstress and keyboardist Brenda Carsey and grooved out by the Awe-some rhythm section featuring Matt Brundrett on drums and a rotating line-up of phenomenal musicians. Carsey’s Voice is, in a word, uninhibited, mixing a syrupy sweet sound with a beautiful darkness and a vocal range with a potential of virtuosity. This Los Angeles, CA based artist has played at heavy hitting music festival Lightning in a Bottle (2017), Feed LA Festival (2016), and Echo Park Rising Festival (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017)! Carsey has toured the entire Western US from San Diego to Seattle, to Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and also Nashville and New York. She has grooved and swooned on the stages of The Hotel Cafe (main stage, with her sold-out album release show in July 2017), The Teragram Ballroom, Harvard & Stone (featured resident artist for the month of November 2017), Good Times at Davey Wayne's, The Federal Bar, and The Lost Knight (to name a few). She will stop you in your tracks with poetic lyrics, fluid melodies, engaging chords progressions, funky rhythms, and a voice filled with passion and soul. Carsey's first full-length studio album Solitary Refinement dropped July 16th 2017. The album features the Awe and was engineered and co-produced by Brian Frederick of Hybrid Studios and Stacks FX, who has worked with names like DJ Quik, Whiz Khalifa, Isabella Summers (the Machine of Florence + the Machine), and the Backstreet Boys on their 20th anniversary record.
In Miwa Gemini's music we hear elements as disparate as the intense atmospheres of The Doors, Chris Garneau's pop experiments, Tom Waits' decadent sonic carnival. Miwa's delicate, magical soprano defies all comparisons contributing to a sound that's quite unique in today's overcrowded music scene. - Deli Magazine, NYC
