This Chicago born, guitar slinging songwriter just hit the top forty iTunes charts with his 5.25.2010 EP release “After the Morning After”. “Todd Carey not only attracts your attention, he holds it…Carey’s music is filled with class, style and the occasional electric guitar that strokes the listeners’ curiosity level making it an easy decision to want to hear more”
Produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, Five for Fighting) The new “After The Morning After” EP “kind of runs the course of a relationship,” Todd describes. “My last record was about the birth and the bright-eyed newness of a relationship, but this group of songs is more diverse.” “The First Day” offers an optimistic outlook of endless possibilities and reminds listeners to take time to enjoy the journey, while “Gotta Be Next to You” pines that despite the convenience of technology, it can’t replace the feeling of being in the presence of a loved one. “Once in a Lifetime” acknowledges the turning point in a relationship and reveals hints of desperation. The most contemplative song on Sessions, “After the Morning After” is one of resign, reflecting on the joy and pain of touring. It confesses that praise from fans, while appreciated, can also ring empty, particularly when life on the road affects relationships at home. Todd knows the touring routine well, as he crisscrossed the country, playing over 250 shows, selling out hometown shows in Chicago and Wisconsin, and became a fixture on the college circuit while promoting “Watching Waiting”.
