Minnesota-based singer-songwriter Joe Carey has been making rock and roll noise for over three decades. Often splitting his time between bands and his solo work, Carey has been an impact on the Twin Cities rock and indie-alternative music scenes for almost two decades.
“Carey plays vocal-driven, guitar-heavy stuff reminiscent of what would happen if The Black Crowes played a friend’s barbecue. It’s upbeat, driving rock for the kind of folks who say the Foo Fighters are the best thing Dave Grohl has ever done, and the kind of folks who mean it. That’s the thing to take away from Carey: He knows what he likes, and that’s what he plays.” AV Club
“It’s truly refreshing to hear somebody really be who they are, say what they want, and play what they want…Carey is one of those rare artists who can record with nearly the same enthusiasm and gravitas as they do in a live setting, and more than a few of these pleasant little gems prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.” ‘Round The Dial———-
With six full length albums to date, Martin Devaney, “the unofficial mayor of St. Paul”, is one of the Twin Cities best known songwriters. A former member of Heiruspecs and current front man of his side project Crossing Guards, Devaney is first and foremost a songwriter. Whether playing solo or with his rotating cast of players with a full band, he has crafted a tight set of songs over the years.
