Spotlight On The 615: Carrie Zaruba

The debut single from Carrie Zaruba is called “Woman On A Mission,” and she says when it comes to music, it’s one she has been on for quite a long time.


“I grew up in a musical family and was exposed to very eclectic sounds early on,” she tells Billboard. “I was trained classically as a lyrical soprano at the Baltimore School of the Arts. It was a conservatory-type high school, so it was very rigorous- both academically and musically. That was my background in singing. It’s almost like learning how to draw lines when you’re an artist,” says Zaruba, recently named on of the “Artists To Watch” in 2013 by the CMA.

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.
