Todd Carey to release 5-track duets EP July 17, announces tour


By Alan Ho

Chicago native and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Todd Carey will be releasing his latest EP called The Duets Project in an online-only exclusive July  17, 2012.  Says Carey of the EP in a press release by Rock Ridge Music:  “The Duets Project came about in a very natural and organic way. Fans and friends had been requesting stripped-down and intimate recordings of songs from my catalogue.”

The EP will feature 5 female singer-songwriters dueting with Carey:  Daphne Willis, Alysse Fischer, Dawn Mitschele, Sarah Miles and Amber Rubarth.  Says Carey of his choice to record duets:  “Having the material and desire to collaborate with a variety of female singers for a long time, it became the perfect opportunity to combine both ideas. While writing and recording the high-energy pop music for my next album, it became a quiet and meditative outlet artistically. It was also a great chance to debut a songwriting direction I’ve been exploring with the track “Float Away” [a track on the EP].  I’m really happy with the resulting EP and to be working with the Rock Ridge Music label.”

True to his prolific touring, Carey will hit the road once again this summer for the “Float Away Tour” with Bushwalla, which has already stopped in Milwaukee at Summerfest this month.  Additionally, Carey has two dates with Tony Lucca in Florida in September before he performs at Hotel Carolina in Isle of Palms, SC.  (See below for a list of tour dates.)
