I'm originally from Sudbury, Ontario and presently live in the suburbs of Vancouver, BC. I restarted a career in 2005, I didn't think of it as a career as much as a passion and something I enjoyed doing. But that passion has swelled into a part-time career.
Somehow I fit it all in in between being a mother of 3 wonderful kids, wife of 1 handsome man and a part-time job that has nothing to do with music.
I have won a few singing/ writing contests over the years. I played with a band for a little over a year. Recorded an acoustic CD via my computer in 2005. A live CD in 2007 with a couple studio songs. In the summer of 2009, I finally recorded my first fully produced EP, "Taken Away'
This is a journey, and as long as I continue to enjoy what I'm doing, bring smiles to peoples faces, and my family supports me then it's a journey worth following.
Currently I host 2 weekly open mics. Wednesday & Fridays (8-10) at El Barrio Restaurante, 2270 E. Hastings, Vancouver. www.elbarrio.ca
Sundays I lead Worship Services at the Open Door Church @ 11391 Dartford St, Maple Ridge. www.opendoorfamily.ca and the occasional worship service at a Nursing Home. I also host a once a month (3rd Sunday) Open Mic at the church building (7-9)
Again your support and comments and love is really appreciated it.
Blessings & Peace to you and your families,
If You Only Knew Me
Dedication to my daughter
Here I Am
Classic Rock with a Country Edge
Angel On My Shoulder
Starting a new career at a later age may seem crazy yet all the same vulnerabilities are there as if you were young. I just wished I had an Angel to help me make the right decisions.
Raise Me Above
This is like a follow up to a song I wrote a year earlier "Living on the borderline". I feel God raised me above all the strain I was feeling at the time.
First release of song from my studio EP being released in Spring 2009
Headin' Down The Highway
One of my favourite things is to take a drive on a nice day, when you're in no hurry & you're enjoying the day with the music blaring...
Living on the borderline
Angel on my shoulder (Demo)
Put on Iac as a demo, had IAC Master it. Hope you enjoy!
The artist has designated this song as non-chartable.

Hugs Carolyn! I love "If You Only Knew Me". How sweet would it be if you and your daughter met as children? What a fantastic thought. What a lyricist you are!

Hey Carolyn, was checking out some music on IAC and found your song...a beautiful song, lyrics and vocals. Wish you best of luck in your music future. My son, Eric Geibel, also has a song on the same IAC site that I co-wrote with him Trouble Know I'm Here. Warm regards. Bruce

thank you so much for your answer at the blog...that time cant be bought or bought back " thing you said, stood out so much,
i have had the same thoughts about things in the past and not being there for others when I was pursuing my own ambitions and self importance and when you come right down to it, it is more important to care for yourself with time for ones self and placing people over things or ignoring supposed special opportunities sometimes is the way to go.....so thank you for your insightful comment, some wisdom indeed ,perhaps from experience
