Carrie Webber is part rock, pop, folk, blues, funk and country. Even if she's hard to label, one well-respected local music source said she's the real deal.
"Whatever Carrie decides to sing " no matter what type of music " she has the versatility and the voice to do it and do it well," said Charlie Rayl, a longtime music instructor who has performed with Webber since 2003. "I've worked with some pretty talented singers over the years, and I can honesty say no one is better than Carrie."
At 29, the Davis native admits she is too old to be a pop idol, but that is not going to stop her from pursuing her dreams.
"I suppose compared to a lot of people in this business, I'm still a newcomer. One thing I am always trying to do is grow as an artist, and I've been so fortunate to be surrounded by so many great influences," she said.
NO LOOKING BACK
In 2006, Webber released her first independent solo album ("This Time"), as well as a new CD ("forever and six conversations...") with her band ReVeL.
"It took a while for me to build the confidence to do this, but there is no turning back now," Webber said. "I love it. I love to sing. It's what I do, and I'm passionate about it."
Having watched Webber come into her own, Rayl believes the sky's the limit.
"Carrie is one of those one-in-a-million girls," he said. "I honestly believe she has a great future in music." "Jay C. Upchurch
