"For a musician to emerge out of the assembly line of singer/songwriters, they need to possess something more than talent. They need passion—a certain wonderful strangeness to stand out amongst the Adele imitators. And it’s safe to say that Long Beach native, Brenda Carsey, has enough passion, drive, and, well, weirdness to ensure that one day soon, we’ll all say, “Oh yeah, I knew her when.” ... a unique blend of styles, mixing a syrupy sweet sound (Colbie Caillat) with a beautiful darkness (Regina Spektor and Feist) and a vocal range with a potential of virtuosity" (Joe Lapin of OC Weekly).
Brenda Carsey is a Long Beach-based vocalist, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Carsey has been 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, Centuries, La Chilanga Banda) and solo projects (Lazy Daze, Brenda Carsey & the Awe, Side Show, eminent.ruth). Carsey's "voice is, in a word, uninhibited. She plays with soulful low notes, a raspy, rock belt, and playful, even childish high notes, sometimes all in the same song. She confidently tackle[s] different genres, too" (Chantel Donnan, Music In Press).
