Carrie talks inspiration and writing her full- length release, Natural Disaster, with journalist Markos Papadatos.
Carrie chats all- things music, motherhood and her love for Brandi Carlile.
Carrie is a gifted and dynamic singer-songwriter that has a unique and powerful voice in the musical universe. I’m very proud of the music we’ve made together and am not only a friend but a huge fan of hers!
Carrie’s EP opens with the soaring title track, where her vocals are slightly reminiscent to that of fellow country start Messina. Another gorgeous vocal is “Belly of the Beast”, similar to the vocals of Reba McEntire. Carrie is indeed on a mission: to deliver the best music possible to her country fans and she succeeds on this goal. She sings with a lot of soul and passion. It garners 5 out of 5 stars.
“Carrie Zaruba is a fresh new sound in Country Music and her voice is magical!”
“…there’s real talent here, in songwriting as well as singing.”
What made Baltimore native Carrie Zaruba so tough, so able to express her feelings in song? Maybe it comes from always being the last kid when your class had to line up in alphabetical order? Whatever it was, she is rising into the Country Music sky, bright, fast and impossible to ignore.Her debut album, Woman on a Mission, announces her arrival with crunchy power guitar, sizzling Country fiddle and lyrics that bounce between heartbreak and fist-pumping pride.
