"Carrie has the amazing voice everyone around town knows, and is a true country pro"~ Michelle/KUPL Portland.  


This EP was a fun one to write. This is the second EP for 2017 and it is a fun pop country album. Each song has a different flare of its own and they all make you want to dance. Whether it is salsa, a country line dance, a traveling cha cha, or even just whistling along, each song will make you want to do something more than just listen.

Carrie Cunningham Biography

Carrie Cunningham is an International Chart topping Performing Songwriter who loves to entertain! The music industry is calling her an authentic, sultry, slightly twisted and totally believable voice on the New Country/Americana scene. Carrie has the sass of Miranda Lambert and a powerhouse voice like Martina McBride; all the while, the sweetness that seethes from the rich tones of Pam Tillis; which engages and captivated the audience within minutes.  

Carrie started in music like many aspiring artists, by singing in a local band, but all the while she was attending school studying voice and composition, and singing with the Spokane Symphony Chorale.  During the Garth and Shania era, is when she started dabbing in songwriting.  In 2000, she had an acoustic duo, Mirror Image and recorded their first EP in 2001.  In 2003, Carrie went back to school for audio production.  After graduating she focused on live sound and was a live sound engineer along side fronting cover bands and eventually her own.

Since then, Carrie has released 3 other EP's through her own record label, Sound Barn Records and also started her own Publishing Company, Sound Barn Publishing. The three EP's under Sound Barn Records are  "The Way You Look at Me", "Secrets", and "Let's Dance".  Other Independent artists have cut songs written by Carrie and she has also had movie placements.
