Cady Groves

Discovered this talented girl quite a while ago on MySpace, did not have the time to share her with you back then. Still quite busy with a lot of projects for college so added a part of Cady's selfwritten bio underneath for you to read. I remember when I realized what I wanted to do in life. I was helping my mom clean out our swimming pool when an old Frank Sinatra song came on the radio. I remember saying, "Mom, I want to write things down that I have to say, and I want to sing them real loud so everyone can hear me." I was seven at the time. Ever since that moment, making music has continued to be my goal. Writing has always been a constant escape for me. A lot of horrible things have happened in my life, and without the ability to write my feelings down and communicate them with a melody; they essentially would have blown up inside of me, for all I know. Sometimes an entire song and melody will pop into my head at a gas station, or some place unexpected. I'll press the record button on my phone and sing the whole thing right there so I won't forget it. It's such a privilege and much fun for me to write songs, and then have them actually be accepted by people. If I have one thing to say--I just want people to know they are not alone. I've made a lot of mistakes, and have experienced a lot of hurt. But the one thing I feel like you can do with pain, is make it your art. If you can turn it into something you can sing along to, the healing will come through that. To imagine one of my songs could change or help someone, or make them feel like someone understands them, makes this all just that much more amazing. It's not about me being a role model, and never will be. I'm part of the crowd. I just want to speak for the whole. We're in this together. Cady released her first EP "A Month Of Sundays" in the fall of last year, and will be releasing her debut album "Life of a Pirate" next month, pre-order it here.

I downloaded her EP about a month ago and not really noticed. But it's a good one, of course.
