The companion to her critically-acclaimed album Sing Louder, this mesmerizing collection of essays provides fans with a deeply introspective look into the inspiration behind her most profound album to date. Featuring 10 first-person stories, each dedicated to a different song, the book begins with an eloquent forward from the author before delving into the raw, compassionate and sometimes downright hilarious side of one of Philadelphia’s favorite female folk rock artists.
“So much good comes from sharing our stories," says Cary. When we hear someone else’s story, we’re inspired to share our own, and maybe even write a different ending. I released this book on International Women’s Day as my thank you to all the women who have been bold and courageous enough to raise their voices and be heard. It’s time for all of us to sing louder!”
Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs is 35 pages and includes original photography from Cary, as well as art work and imagery that has inspired her songwriting process.
Available at live performances, as well as here online.
