News from Carolyn
Finally Spring! It’s been a long year, and hoping for live shows again and better days. I’ve been busy narrating books for audio, and also, teaching and recording new songs.
Right now, my “Detroit (Maiden Energy)” audio book is available on many audio platforms including Google Play. If you haven’t downloaded it, join in at https://www.chirpbooks.com/audiobooks/detroit-maiden-energy-by-carolyn-striho. “Detroit (Maiden Energy)” is also available at Detroit area bookstores and in northern Michigan, as well as on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Thanks for the support! I also just narrated and provided my song “Sometimes I Wonder” for Jen Knox’ “Resolutions” – check it here at: https://www.scribd.com/audiobook/499282472/Resolutions-a-family-in-stories And here’s how to listen to a sample and download another book I narrated, Romayne Kazmer’s “Letter that Moved My Father” https://www.booktopia.com.au/letters-that-moved-my-father-romayne-kazmer/audiobook/9781736767788.html
Also, thank you again for the Detroit Music Award nominations for 2021. I’ve received 4 nominations in the Rock/Pop and Classical Categories, and Scott Dailey also received a nomination. We’re honored and best wishes to all musicians, artists, writers and performers in April and beyond 🙂 https://www.detroitmusicawards.net/2021-nominees
We’ll be booking live shows when the coast is clear, and have some cool venues we’re looking forward to playing. We’re hoping to have the new album out later this year digitally and maybe CD/vinyl formats, too. And the U.K. is calling…our shows are scheduled when everything is a go again.
Sending love, empathy, kindness, and hope to you,
“Love the colour of your heartfelt voice, lovely intro on ‘Cornered Room’ great song! ‘Let It Go’ another favourite of mine, nice rapping, and love the gypsy feel on ‘Russian Inn’ beautiful violinist. Stunning album, love it”
Striho continues to share her brilliance, effortlessly moving from bluesy and jazzy to belted out rock & roll. Her latest release, Afterthought, showcases all of these styles, along with a few more that might surprise people. The musical poetry is undeniably Striho however, and she manages to pull everything together with the ease of a seasoned pro and the flair of a master illusionist. She makes her own creative path and people can’t help but follow where she leads…
“Afterthought moves through a host of musical moods, from the moodier, darker vibe of the opening title track to exotic gypsy-rock feel of “Russian Inn” to the lively, driving sound of “Love Won’t Stay Close” which you can hear exclusively for now in this Freep First Spin debut.”
