INFO:
Carrie Cunningham is an International Chart topping Performing Songwriter who loves to entertain! The music industry is calling her an authentic, sultry, slightly twisted and totally believable voice on the New Country/Americana scene. Carrie has the sass of Miranda Lambert and a powerhouse voice like Martina McBride; all the while, the sweetness that seethes from the rich tones of Pam Tillis; which engages and captivated the audience within minutes.  

Carrie started in music like many aspiring artists, by singing in a local band, but all the while she was attending school studying voice and composition, and singing with the Spokane Symphony Chorale.  During the Garth and Shania era, is when she started dabbing in songwriting.  In 2000, she had an acoustic duo, Mirror Image and recorded their first EP in 2001.  In 2003, Carrie went back to school for audio production.  After graduating she focused on live sound and was a live sound engineer along side fronting cover bands and eventually her own.  

In 2005, she signed on with an Independent label, Divulge Records, where she released her Honeysweet album, along with releasing a video to her song "Smile Again" in conjunction with the Vanished Children's Alliance.   She was with Divulge until 2011.

Since then, Carrie has released 3 other EP's through her own record label, Sound Barn Records and also started her own Publishing Company, Sound Barn Publishing. The three EP's under Sound Barn Records are  "The Way You Look at Me", "Secrets", and "Let's Dance".  Other Independent artists have cut songs written by Carrie and she has also had movie placements.

Carrie Is currently passionate about spreading the awareness of Domestic Violence and any form of child endangerment.  Carrie has been a volunteer with The Big Brother's, Big Sisters organization, the Lunch Buddy program, and also CASA- Court Appointed Child Advocate

She has opened up for acts like Kacey Musgraves, James Otto, Jake Owen, Crystal Gayle, Brian White, Collective Soul, Diamond Rio, Restlesss Heart, Love and Theft, and many, many others.

Secrets EP (2017)
This was the first of two EP's in 2017. Secrets is more heavily in the Americana blues genre than Let's Dance. Most of the songs are dark and very story telling. You have murder, seduction, loneliness,longing, and revenge. They all have the nice rich sound of a pedal steel, except a few of them make you imagine a mystery movie, while a few others bring you into a hotel or swanky bar.

The Way You Look At Me EP (2012)

Everything about this EP, just makes me feel good. This EP is about love. Love for yourself, family, the holy spirit. The one song I am the most proud of, has touched more lives than I probably realize, or have been told, is "Tears In The Rain". May my husband's mother and every other lost love, forever be with us.
