John Carey Feat.Gina Carey – Step Show
I think I was becoming comfortable with just being a wife and singing backgrounds on my husband’s new CD “New Beginnings“, but my husband continued to encourage me to not give up on my passion to sing. So “Melodic” was born through that experience.”
With a new love and a fresh perspective, John & Gina were able to create a masterpiece. Gina was born on October 17 in Chicago, Illinois and spent her formative years growing up in Los Angeles, CA. She now resides in Palm Springs, CA.
“I came up with the name Melodic because people are always telling me that my music is very soothing and smooth so I thought I would name this CD “Melodic” because of the pleasant sounding melodies comprised on this album.
I started singing around 8 years and singing has been my passion every since. My musical influences were Gladys Knight, Denise Williams, Minnie Riperton, Billy Holiday, and Stevie Wonder. I grew up listening to real music. Singers in those days made you feel really something.
Gina Carey Unbelievable
I love the raw vocals and real singing from the soul. That’s the type of music I enjoy writing and performing.” Gina has performed all over the United States and has shared the stage with many well established celebrities and will be touring throughout US this year with her husband John Carey.
