I just won the Outstanding Rock Songwriter of the Year 2015 in the Detroit Music Awards in April. I’m grateful for so many nominations over the years and some really cool wins. Detroit is an amazing music city and to be honored once more is really great.  www.detroitmusicawards.net.  And what a super show we just had at Callahan’s Music Hall in Auburn Hills, Michigan for the Rio/Striho return gig, sold-out with so many new fans and friends!

We also had more airplay on WCSX-FM 94.7 with Doug Podell, WDET-FM with Ann Delisi and on WHFR-FM 93.9 with Scott Boatright – – as well as in Germany and Australia – – thank you again!  I’m adding some requested older material and albums to my websites this year, and also to CD Baby, soon.  http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/CarolynStriho1   And you can request my CDs or download music on I-Tunes, Amazon and CD Baby – just type in “striho” – or through area record stores and from me of course! Just as an aside, we fund everything ourselves; we don’t fund raise and kickstart or gofund me/indie go.  So I’m really grateful for your purchases.

Busy recording the new album in the studio, spring into summer as the focus is on film work/writing.  The next local show in the Detroit, Michigan area is with my full band on May 9th at the Stray Cat Lounge in the Detroit Metro area at Clinton Township, Michigan – delicate, passionate, raw power, and new music –  http://www.thestraycatlounge.com/

And there is some cool stuff coming up; I have some great festivals I’ve been invited to do and one is at the Concert of Colors Don Was 2015 All-Star Revue at the Max Fisher Music Hall in downtown Detroit –  we’re performing again with Don and the All-Star Revue on Sunday night, July 12th 7 pm!   www.concertofcolors.com

Also this summer is a weekend coming up performing at the neat northern Michigan’s Beaver Island Festival – another one-of-a-kind festival!  http://www.bimf.net/artists-2015.html.   We have a possible return to Europe to play on a new tour…and a new album/CD release this year.    More info at info at www.reverbnation.com/carolynstriho with New Songs posted later this year xo
