Another Kind of Fire
As an established indie artist, Boston-based Edie Carey has toured with the likes of Norah Jones and Ani DiFranco, performed at the Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City and had songs featured on TV shows such as Charmed and MTV’s Road Rules. But her most impressive achievement to date has to be writing and recording her fourth album, Another Kind of Fire.
From the opening bars of the atmospheric and slick “Hollywood Ending” to the sparse and breathless ballad “What Love Looks Like”, Carey has created an album bursting with songwriting depth and melodic richness. Producer Crit Harmon may be responsible for the lush tapestry of sound on Another Kind of Fire, but Carey is entirely responsible for the mature vocals and unforgettable melodies on tracks like the heartfelt “The Night” and the beautiful “My Heart”.
Drawing comparison to folk-pop artists such as Catie Curtis, Carey’s songs consistently maintain the delicate balance between commercial potential and a true indie spirit. Carey may have called her label Accidental Poet, but on the evidence of Another Kind of Fire, her musical success has more to do with talent than good fortune.
