Universal Republic Records has signed on their latest contribution to the pop world. Erin McCarley is a new artist with a great voice and music to match. Talented and heartbreakingly honest, McCarley is pretty upfront about her feelings “It’s hard for me to write about being happy,” McCarley admits. “I don’t prefer being sad, but it’s a real spot for me. If you met me, I’m not this dark, sulking person, though I’m not bubbly by any means, either. I guess it comes down to the fact that I’m not afraid of being sad.” Check her out.
Erin McCarley Biography
She’s only in her twenties and already exudes an old soul attitude. Erin McCarley grew up in the burbs of Dallas in what sounds like a June Cleaver household. Growing up in such a solid family unit you would think McCarley would be pretty content. Instead the artist says “It kind of gave me an unrealistic view of everything.” The unrealistic which seems to have added a dose of wisdom to her lyrics.
Since her childhood in Garland McCarley has laid her roots in San Diego for a time selling clothes in a boutique. Around that time the pop singer began writing her own songs and cites Fiona Apple and Spoon as her creative muses.
“Most nights I’d end up with an unfinished song. But when the day would come when all the pieces would align, and I’d know this is a song for people to hear, there is no better release in the world.
Since then McCarley has moved to Nashville, now her current home, were she writes and sings. McCarley debut album, Love, Save the Empty, is due out this October.
Check out her new track, Pony, after the jump.
