"The standout, though, is Cari Ray's "Wade On In", whose Sunday-morning lyrics are offset perfectly by Ray's Saturday-night vocals: she's got just enough whiskey and smoke in her pipes to make a song of salvation credible."

Q: Cari, -nicely constructed songs, nice musical blend, and great vocals. Do you play all original songs?

A: Hi Craig, thanks for asking, and for the compliment. The answer is yes, all of my songs are original. I have experimented with a little co-writing and have a few that were jointly penned, but otherwise, I write 'em, then I sing 'em!
