This record attempts to translate the emotion of longing into sound. Thats why the title track describes the process of want, bordering on obsession.- Todd Carey

Acclaimed for his hot-wire live performances, Carey has been hailed as a "talented musician with a lot of energy and an established following" (MTV Online), to a "star front man (with) solid material," (Music Connection). Given such effusive notices, it should come as no surprise that Carey's engrossing release on Inspiration Factory/High Wire Music/Fontana (Universal's Independent Arm), showcases his unique take on contemporary pop-rock song craft. Produced by Marshall Altman, (Marc Broussard, Matt Nathanson, Brooke Fraser), recorded by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Rachael Yamagata, Warren Zevon), and mixed by Brian Malouf (O.A.R., Natasha Bedingfield, Pearl Jam) Watching Waiting stands out like an oasis of emotionalism in a cynical rock 'n' roll wasteland.

Carey's songs would be impressive enough if they were simply wonderfully crafted, radio-ready gems. But theres an actual story behind Watching Waitings pop-inflected melodies, bedrock rhythms and introspective lyrics. Back in 2004, Carey found himself at a crossroads. Born and raised in the Chicago area, he had moved to Los Angeles in the late 90s to study music at the prestigious University of Southern California. Before long, he was earning his rock 'n' roll keep as front man for the improvisational LA band, Telepathy. Though Carey's charismatic stage presence helped transform Telepathy into one of southern Californias most successful club acts, the singer-guitarist found himself beset by feelings of restlessness, and returned to Chicago with new direction. "It was the live thing," Carey recalls with a laugh, referring to Mid-Wests fanatical crowds. "I missed playing shows for audiences who really want to grow with their artists." MORE

    I saw your concert at Jammin Java, the guitar duet/battle/whatever you did with Keaton Simons at the end of your set was totally epic. Otherwise the show was awesome! Aug 25
