February…floating….

11913244_10207346355282659_1703785275_n Well, here I am in February with miles to go before I sleep…we had many submissions in the Detroit Music Awards again this year and wanted to thank you the artists, musicians, songwriters and music community as you get ready to vote for nominations www.detroitmusicawards.net . Finally, the new music will be coming out and gigs being planned as we travel to northern Michigan for a private party first, then going to Mexico again this Spring! New dates coming sometime… www.reverbnation.com/carolynstriho – And between teaching and writing, back in the studio rehearsals and new video, busy times this winter.  David Bowie meant so much growing up and all my life, right in sync with his music and performing- rest in peace doesn’t quite fit the pages of meaning he gave…sending prayers of hope and faith to Flint, Michigan – and to everybody…a super rocking February month to you, peace!

love,

Off of our 5th European tour, we began to cut a new CD/album with a new direction, brand new songs and special guests. There’s never-heard-before tracks I wrote and recorded, too-bonus! Hoping for a spring/summer release in 2016 – going back to the studio – and thanks for radio airplay in Detroit, Metro Detroit, northern Michigan, England, Italy and New Zealand.. Great shows this year with the full band at Callahan’s Music Hall and O’Mara’s Irish Pub, my second time performing on Detroit’s famous Concert of Colors with Don Was on bass, my guitarist/comrade Scott Dailey and Don’s house band! at Orchestra Hall/Max Fisher Music Center.  We also did 3 nights acoustic at the Beaver Island Music Festival in Lake Michigan, back to our 5th year at Metro Detroit’s huge Arts Beats & Eats Festival, shows at Majestic Café  (in the Majestic Theatre Detroit) and other area clubs including Stray Cat Lounge.  In October, I visited Patti Smith at her great “M Train” book reading at Michigan Theatre Ann Arbor, and also was lucky to go back to Jamaica!  Invited to the Grammy Music Awards again & congratulations to the nominees  ..everybody love, health, peace & understanding to a Happy New Year 2016  xo

happy Fall, sisters and brothers, xo

C good DinosIt’s October, somehow September just came and went after our heat stroke show at the big festival in Michigan, Arts Beats & Eats–and a month spent writing/recording new music, and teaching.  Closer to a new CD release..with the excitement of receiving a fresh Outstanding CD of the Year in the Detroit Music Awards with “Word Attack” for 2014 and Outstanding CD of the Year for Rock in 2010 with the wild ride of “Honesty,” it’s neat to be working on new songs.

Some great show announcements – I’m performing with my full band on a show with Jill Jack and Escaping Pavement in November.  We’ll be at the Majestic Café, Saturday night, November 7th. The Majestic Theatre Complex in Detroit has always been a great place to perform and the Café is great.  Played there recently in 2013 at the Majestic Theatre with Patti Smith and her band, and back at the Majestic Café for our CD Release party hosted by the terrific Ann Delisi/WDET-FM.  So we’re back with a great lineup of Jill Jack and Escaping Pavement for a super night in Midtown Detroit, Saturday Nov. 7, 2015 – tickets http://www.ticketweb.com/t3/sale/SaleEventDetail?dispatch=loadSelectionData&eventId=6186785

Then comes a big blast of a holiday party we’re doing with the gypsies of the Rio/Striho show returning! This is a really stellar show we’ve done together many times at Callahan’s Music Hall, the Loving Touch, and U Detroit. We’re back on Friday night, December 4th at O’Mara’s Irish Club in Berkley, Michigan.  The Carolyn Striho Group and Rio & the Rockabilly Revival will be performing new music, holiday music, incense, candles, peppermints, a great menu, cozy December of the new holiday moon coming in.  Rio/Striho shows always sell out. And we might have a few preview copies of my new CD…check tickets at Brown Paper Tickets on line http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2386293

More shows coming in, thanks and mark down Sat. Nov. 7 at Majestic Café in Detroit and Friday Dec. 4 at O’Mara’s in Berkley, Michigan !  xoxo carolyn   www.reverbnation.com/carolynstriho and remember, please support artists – I’m at I Tunes, Amazon and http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/carolynstriho1210620656_1011942958840453_3119412732854041417_n

August Music News to September, festivals and recording!

621545_10151147127362593_950713554_oOur next show is Sunday September 6, 2015, at the big Arts Beats & Eats Labor Day weekend.  We’re back for the 4th time at Arts Beats!   We missed the 2014 Festival as we were back in Italy performing on tour. And in 2013, I had to undergo surgeries. So this year, the full band is back for an exciting show at Arts Beats & Eats 2015 on the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort Rock Stage, 4 pm to 5:15 pm –  www.artsbeatseats.com

Wow, we’ve had a great summer with super shows, including Detroit’s Concert of Colors. I was honored to perform once again with Don Was and the All-Star Revue backing Scott Dailey and me for the Electrifying Mojo Celebration! What a stellar lineup of great acts and driving music, it was standing room only at Max Fisher Music Hall/Orchestra Hall in July here in Detroit.  So many thanks to Ismael Ahmed, Ann Delisi, WDET-FM, Roger and Margaret White, Kim Silarski, The Arab-American Museum, Chris Tayler, my musician friends, family & fans, fantastic All-Star Revue band and Don Was! www.concertofcolors.com

Then the northern Michigan tour was great – we hit the Beaver Island Music Festival, traveling on the ferry from Charlevoix was a blast to the island – history, mystery, energy, rustic stage at the Festival way deep in the woods…we performed with great bands from Detroit, Chicago, northern Michigan, friends and fans from Indiana and Kentucky, Canada. Artists folk and laid back camping families, people buying merch including our CDs and my hard-to-find vinyl Thank you!  Delicious whitefish, smoked fish and the best baked beans. Removed from the world but in a world of song and dance -Beaver Island – thank you, Carol and BIMF~! www.bimf.net

A new album is coming together as we add more shows, including some guest appearances and private parties. I’m thinking 11705518_10153403749702593_8649756901732348210_oof releasing singles, but likely doing the full-tilt record.  The songs are sounding really good with some new directions ….and I keep writing, so I’m still hoping for a 2015 Release.  I’ve also added special guests-Barbara Payton (Bob Seger) came by and did stellar back up vocals and Erin Zindle (Ragbirds) dropped by for some super accordion and more. I’m adding a secret, amazing saxophone player and we just added Detroit WAE’s Khary Frazier’s compelling rap/spoken word.  I’m also working on my other CD with some of the “greatest hits” and never-before heard songs.  It’s all coming together, I think!

11705427_10205299359776179_2165184957907309377_oLove to great days and thanks for listening.11816147_10207238386023495_4433093590672328214_o
