Biography: Unique and soulful is the only words to describe soul singer Gina Carey. Although many have compared Gina Carey to Broadway’s sensation and recording artist Stephanie Mills, she has her own sound and style that can easily be identified in all of her recordings. 

Throughout Gina’s musical career, she has written and recorded 3 independently released gospel CD’s (In His Time, Changes & Tell Um) and 2 soulful albums, “My Journey” and her latest “Melodic”.

Gina began her professional recording career in 1996 with her first release “In His Time” selling over 10,000 copies nationwide. In 2006, Gina was nominated by the Black Music Academy Association of America in two categories: “Best Gospel Performer – Female” and “Gospel Rising Star”.She performed at the event, held at the Cashman Theater, before a full house and won the “Las Vegas Black Music Awards 2006 Best Gospel Performer – Female” award. Later that year, she auditioned for NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

In 2007, She also performed at the first EURWEB awards with Lee Bailey and in that same year, Gina auditioned for the Hit TV show *Showtime at the Apollo* and impressed the judges so much that she was invited twice to be a guest on the show filmed in Harlem, New York. In 2008 BET J aired her “True Love” music video on the morning Cup show.

Her most recent album entitled “Melodic” was the first and only CD that was written, arranged & composed by Gina. Her multi talented husband and recording artist Urban Soul Guitarist “JOHN CAREY” produced the “Melodic” CD and is also featured on this album as the lead guitarist.

The sensual soulful sound of Gina Carey meets the electrifying/ funky jazz lead guitarist contributions of her husband, urban soul Guitarist John Carey on all 10 songs on Gina’s album.

Gina celebrates her fifth release with 10 new songs that put you back in the old school sounds of the early 80’s era.

After being in hiatus for almost four years, Gina’s husband was the inspiration behind this phenomenal project. “I wasn’t planning on recording anytime soon. I think I was becoming comfortable with just being a wife and singing backgrounds on my husband’s new CD “New Beginnings”, but my husband continued to encourage me to not give up on my passion to sing. So “Melodic” was born through that experience.” With a new love and a fresh perspective, John & Gina were able to create a masterpiece. Gina was born on October 17 in Chicago, Illinois and spent her formative years growing up in Los Angeles, CA. She now resides in Palm Springs, CA.

“I came up with the name Melodic because people are always telling me that my music is very soothing and smooth so I thought I would name this CD “Melodic” because of the pleasant sounding melodies comprised on this album. I started singing around 8 years and singing has been my passion every since. My musical influences were Gladys Knight, Denise Williams, Minnie Riperton, Billy Holiday, and Stevie Wonder. I grew up listening to real music. Singers in those days made you feel really something. I love the raw vocals and real singing from the soul. That’s the type of music I enjoy writing and performing.”

Gina has performed all over the United States and has shared the stage with many well established celebrities and will be touring throughout US this year with her husband John Carey. Gina Carey Melodic – Available CD Baby.com and I Tunes on 6/18 /11
