Cary Grace biography
Cary Grace composes, produces and performs music, which is strongly related to the classic British psychedelic progressive rock sound. She was born in United States, where she started her musical career. In 2005 she moved to England, and also then directed more strongly to British prog sound in her music. On her records she sings, and plays both guitar and vintage synthesizers. With her collaborators she creates moody music with strong composed melodies and lyrics, and also providing space for free cosmic jammings. The melodic side of her music could be compared to early 1970's Pink Floyd, and the sound of analogue synthesizers in the improvisational sequences has little similar feeling as some of the Hawkwind records have. These elements are accompanied with both folk rock moments, slow cosmic bluesy passages and heavier guitar riff patterns. The most disturbing avantgarde solutions are not used, helping to create pleasant, sincere and emotional musical experience. Her records are recommended to the listeners interested of classic Brittish psychedelic progressive sound of the seventies.

Review by Rivertree

— First review of this album —
3 stars Featuring twittering synths, psychedelic guitars and celestial vocals Cary Grace appears in a reliable manner again with her unique cosmic singer-songwriter approach. 'Constant Things' sounds like a retrospective view in some way. This time presented with an instrumental outfit, at least the song Vanishing saw the light of day some years ago already. So overall I would not be surprised if all the tracks are leftovers deriving from previous recording sessions.

Well, taking my personal taste as a starting point I would like to mention the jamming parts of the album, to name the extended instrumental Nightfall first and foremost, the band acts in best space rock tradition, the album's highlight if you ask me. And now it's time to point to something new, besides the cool synths Cary also cares for some smooth keyboard adds here, sounding close to Rhodes piano .. ahhh ... and two guest guitarists are helping to provide a lush sound.

The opener Pilot and The Twilight Sea both attract attention due to her ethereal voice - chirping birds and sparkling water are additions to Mountain Song - this one is evidently close to a typical singer-songwriter appeal. Finnish artist Eetu Pellonpää has provided some nice psychedelic artwork for the album - reduced on the black and white contrast with intent, I'm sure, and especially corresponding to this song.

All in all 'Constant Things' can't knock my socks off like it happened when listening to the album 'Perpetual Motion' or the fantastic 'Green Carot Jam' which are heavier on improvisation. However, comprising one gem at least this is a fine production nevertheless, You should know ... Cary Grace has way more to offer than acoustic guitar and some chords. I warmly recommend to check out her music ... and bet you won't regret!

— First review of this album —
5 stars I consider this EP as the most precious record of Cary Grace's discography, from both augmented and personal subjective points of views. The compact selection of the fine quality songs compromise in my opinion the majority of the fine elements dominant in her sonic art in prolific manner, and the quality of compositions, arrangements and performing is top class on each song. The personal sound lingering between American and European psychedelic moody music emphasizes very laidback trip between both external and internal worlds.

The first track "Amber" opens with heavier notes, then calming to gentle chord progressions accompanied with pretty singing. Mellow, slightly sad moods, with hints of hope wave along the shores of a spiritual ocean, tension rises and shifts to a riff section reminding the sound of early Uriah Heep. A more self-confident dedication phase with convincing vocal is united with thoughtful and touching lyrics, shimmering mellow vintage hard rock aesthetics from a very romantic philosophical core. Music descends back to more tender motives and then rises again to a bass dominated jam sequence and closes with melody theme reprisals. Second song "Firefly" hovers relaxed in a hazy summer's sunlight, building from quite minimal elements a beautiful tonal figure ideal for calming visions of ideal summertime memories. The third piece "Common Ground" is maybe most powerful of the five songs, starting euphorically mellow, but concealing surprisingly powerful attack theme, fitting to the compositional logics and increasing contrast intensity perfectly, as the touching lyrical performance shifts naturally to the more powerful punch back and forth. "Hollow Things" is named correctly, as it's delicate soundscapings dominate the positive song, gently haunted keyboards allowing graceful elevation. The experimental sound arrangements in the end lead directly to the final track "2000 Light Years from Home", which first focuses more to the abstract aural realms, and then reveals it's dramatic rock motive. This later disappears once further back to space, continuing to lingering in cosmic electronic void, and later the rock theme is reprised, and finally the record ends with long glide to emptiness.

The record is packed to environmental friendly cardboard covers, and illustrated with pretty photographs and artist's signature. The CD itself is also a really beautiful vinyl replica, giving the final touch to the perfectionism of this record. All this also done in quite clearly self-made effort manner, escaping plastic corporation product solutions, and still reaching great quality. I also believe this EP would be a good sampler for anybody interested to check out Cary's music with economically feasible and fine quality product. Her earlier records are more roots oriented, then following records yet more psychedelic, this standing between as a prolific catalyst.

Where You Go
Cary Grace Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Eetu Pellonpää
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars The values of beauty have many forms, and in this album that quality can be seen as in a kind of transition phase. Romantic American roots country music is morphing as a more classical British psychedelic rock music, and these orientations match actually very well, containing stylistic interfaces and interesting points for contrasts. By adjusting sound tones, expanding composition length and allowing more musical solutions governed by the poetic justice, the musicians find a safe passage over the Atlantic to the pond's other side vintage musical styles. Further onward wind is blown to the sails by the keyboards, audio effects and dreamy lyrics. These compositions are great as always, giving room to free jamming, being extremely mellow, and supporting Cary's beautiful vocals wonderfully. Some songs are quite guitar dominated, and also the cosmic vintage synthesizers present, though still finding their way as one of the main factors in Cary's British-era sound. Quality control has been very fine as usual, and I like this music uniting American and UK vintage sounds, a theme which will later be enjoyed further in the upcoming albums. A very recommendable disc for those who are searching both beautiful and personal mellow psychedelic music, especially as nice vinyl replica which the printed CD's are.

Take This Love With You
Cary Grace Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Eetu Pellonpää
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars In this single I believe are crystallized both Cary's origins in American music, and also the psychedelic vintage sound of her British years. "Take This Love" has very mellow and romantic melodic characteristics, and the open echoed ambiences give room for focusing strongly to the vocal performance, which is now more in front than the vintage keyboards. When I contemplated what other stuff would associate with this music, I concluded to a more psychedelic incarnation of "Wrecking Ball" album by Emmylou Harris, mostly the song "Goodbye". Cary's very beautiful composition goes more further in surrealism with ghastly walls sound and screaming solo guitar, supported by slowly swinging guitar chord progression and impressionistic audio treatments. I was also curious to hear how this tender psychedelic performer would treat Bob Dylan's song, also familiar to me for the 13th Floor Elevators album. Her version implements more detailed rhythm arrangements to the opening and middle sections, and contains the most aesthetically beautiful vocal performance of this song which I have yet heard. The American sound is delivered with the slide guitars, and psychedelic sound elements are present in the strongly used echo treatments and dreamy attention to musical supportive details mirrored at the background and in the end of the song. I have liked very much Cary's earlier records, and I'm curious if this single would be an indicator of new directions in her artistic direction. Strong compositions, fine vocals, wide walls of soothing echo sounds, larger array of musical elements and professional band executing the pleasant arrangements culminates to this personal sound.

Review by Eetu Pellonpää

4 stars This nearly 24 minutes long improvisation introduces Cary's band's strong jam potential, which in her studio releases usually is blended with predefined song elements (a single-malt improv?). In the beginning bass guitar creates a logical rhythmic and melodic starting point for the reactive and creative musical interaction. The jam follows the stylistic line of the "Perpetual Motion" album, having dominant cosmic vintage synths and strong electric solo guitar presence, resembling slightly the sound texture of 1990's Hawkwind releases if searching a comparison. Short pauses in rhythm create open calmer sections for the group to search a direction, and it's fun to listen how the performers support each other and offer musical elements for mutual evaluation, and then continuing the voyage with agreed themes within the groovy causeway towards the next galaxy. This EP supports well her previous album where the free playing has also a very strong role, there though implemented to a compositional context. This EP would probably please also any prog fan interested of improvised playing, in addition of those already knowing Cary's earlier records.

4 stars You do not like green carrot jam?

Have you ever seen green carrots in reality? I can't remember - not to mention worked up to (a) jam! What the hell is this? Very rare - 100% organic usually ... announced on the jar label at least. Made by mum with love and hope? ... sorry, now I'm getting off the point. This is an EP holding one long 24 minute improvisation song - wrapped by a pun - an original excerpt left from the 'Perpetual Motion' sessions in April 2009 which I've already reviewed.

You can bet a jam jar that this track got on this production in its original state - live as such even including some slight drum problems which proves the original character. Well to be exact, except minimal overdubs nothing is polished and reworked. The song holds nearly the same spirit as 'Helleborus', only violin player Graham Clark is not aboard here. This means as for a jam as it is we have a grooving fundament with driving drums and Andy Budge's playful bass. The guitar is soloing a lot with variations from psychedelic to jazz rock accompanied by Cary's well-conveived squeaking, bubbling and swirling synthesizer adds.

This reminds me of Oresund Space Collective in parts. What makes it enjoyable all along are the changes to spacey floating excursions here and there. Probably I'm wrong but during this moments the guitar sounds MAN (Micky Jones) reminiscent to me - exciting! As usual you can enjoy a collective playing which technically deserves the name 'Cary Grace Band'. Anyway - 'The recipe is a secret, its rare ingredients are arcane and unobtainable' Cary is revealing about the production. This jam is delicious by all means and can be ordered as a nice-looking black vinyl replica CD in mini record sleeve via her own label Door 13 Music.

I do! I like it, Sam-I-am!

— First review of this album —
4 stars Nice vintage soundscapes start this CD-single song, based on firm spaced out bluesy drive and dreamy beautiful singing, leading the willing listener to the psychedelic realms of Cary Grace. Neat use of different echo and reverb treatments in synths and voice emphasize the cosmic aspect of the composition, which also has some heavier guitar riffings in the end, where the whole stuff eventually seems to cross the event horizon of a black hole or something similar. This tune gives a good example of the musical style of the artist, and is recommended along her long players to anybody open for a romantic approach towards classic psychdelic art rock sound.

Review by Eetu Pellonpää
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars The most recent double album of CARY GRACE wanders in the realms of pleasant vintage psychedelic rock music. The album is built from three types of songs; Longer jam-oriented songs varying length from eleven to twenty four minutes, shorter compositions emphasizing melody and songwriting approach, and the some shorter middle sections, resembling little "Promenades" of Moussorgy's "Pictures at an Exhibition" for these tracks.

Beautiful "Scarab" opens the album with pretty acoustic minor-key melodies and vocals, giving fine first impression for anybody open to acid folk, pleasant lady singer's voice and an analogue synthesizer sounds. First "Between Pages" shifts in as calm and melancholic progression lead by keyboards. The next song is then a first longer track here, "Cassiopeia 1572" running over thirteen minutes. Oriental resembling chords starts the song, and it's feeling is more playful and peculiar. Tender instruments are weaved around a bass guitar playing nice high pitch patterns. Like the name suggests, the synthesizers deliver spacey cosmic tones to the pleasant, free and relaxed cosmic jamming built from two modal themes between a more stagnant galactic aural space. Second mellow "Between Pages" introduces the longest track of the album, "Queen of Pentacles" running over twenty four minutes. The song forms a kind of circle, borne from quiet pulsing, distant sounds and growing bass guitar presence, then chord change leading to a theme for singing and marching rhythm which switches with a harder guitar riff. Later the song ends to same theme and ambience from where it started, and between lies a fine, long, hypnotic jam lead by both synthesizers and guitar solos. This spontaneous song really flows pleasantly and logically, pleasantly feeling much shorter than the time it really lasts.

Second disc starts with the third "Between Pages", which delivers more playful feeling after the long trip, and leads to "Dream Catcher", an euphoric and beautiful song with some slightly oriental chords. Fourth "Between Pages" is a bluesy shorite, referring the melody of the first song in a nice way. It prepares well for the following "Helleborus", written and performed in the way of bluesy 60's American psychedelic sound (Jefferson Airplane is an association here for me). In the jam section a violin mingles neatly with the guitar, creating a relaxed hazy summer feeling in line with the mellow melancholy of the other tracks of the album. Vocal sections visit and fade away from the theme variations, and the song ends to an electronic ambience leading to the final title track, "Perpetual Motion". This song excluding 20 minutes of length starts pleasantly, fading in directly to an active improvisation process, pleasantly wandering keyboards presenting the theme for group's support. A bluesy melody theme circles lingering around one note, tension gaining height calmly. The bass progression varies the note progressions for calmly voyaging synthesizers and guitars in a dreamy echo-treated realms, flowing towards a quiet cosmic direction, where the song and album at the end fades.

So, the dominant overall impression for me here was a calm, pleasant, mellow and pretty psychedelic musical trip. Often this kind of music is also aggressive, neurotic and chaotic, but here we get quite accessible, but still vintage, personal and pleasant experience without psychosis. Thus I find the album and artist recommendable to the vintage psych prog portfolio for the fans of the music genre concerned. If describing with comparisons, some kind of idea of the music style could be blending cosmic synth sounds of 70's Hawkwind to the tender "Meddle"-era Pink Floyd tones with touch of psych folk, strong synthesizer presence and female voice in front.

Where You Go
Cary Grace Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by BoldmanUK

4 stars I came across Cary Grace about 2 years ago after hearing one of her tracks on a Live365 prog station. I was immediately impressed with the dreamy, laid back feel of the track (it was Real Life , now one of my favourites) so sought out more of her music. I was able to get a download of "Where you go" and since then I've picked up the actual CD from her website, which is a beautifully produced package, well worth the extra. I loved the detail of the CD cover which looks like a miniature old-fashioned vinyl disk. The track listing is even split into two "sides" called "This Side" and "The Other Side".

Back to the music: Real Life: a very laid back song, with a steel-guitar-like lead guitar which gives the track a bluesy feel. After a spacey guitar-led intro, Cary's vocals wash over the music, with a velvet caress that sends a chill down the spine - "I am the infinite blue sky...". I get the shivers when she goes into the "This must be real life..." section. My second favourite track on the album.

Bellerophon: with a backwards intro and a joyous guitar riff, Cary starts singing about the Greek Hero who captured the winged horse Pegasus. Lots of interweaving keyboards keeps this track interesting and makes it another favourite.

Must be Voodoo: Cary voice in this track switches from sultry purr to a strident lead vocal for the chorus, with some bluesy guitar work in the middle section.

Electric Light: Another very laid back track, with some very psychadelic lyrics and a lead guitar that makes me think of David Gilmore.

Heavy Gold: So laid back I'm almost horizontal now! Soulful drums are one of the main features along with intricate vocals and a superb slide guitar, with a saxophone appearing quite suddenly in the middle to perform a solo, followed by more slide guitar and Cary's superb voice.

Pandora: released as a single with a cover version of Cream's Tales of Great Ulysses. This is probably one of her most "commercial" tracks, with a pacier feel and more conventional structure and arrangement. That is not to say it isn't enjoyable, it just isn't as stand out as other tracks on the album.

Flowers of Stone: We switch back to a slower track again with Cary's distinctive vocal purr.

Marionette: Nice enough song, but doesn't really do anything for me. Nothing wrong with it, I just don't connect with it. Some interesting lyrics however.

Summer: Finally, the best track on the album and my favourite CG track so far. Opening with Distant bird song and some reberv heavy bells that can make your teeth rattle when listening through headphones, the song opens out with some very Dave Gilmore like guitar and a bass-line that will loosen the fillings in your teeth! When the vocals arrive, you just sit back and let it all wash over you. I haven't felt like this listening to any new music in years! I get the shivers every time I listen to this track.

Overall, a wonderful new discovery and I've since acquired most of her other albums directly from her website. Highly recommended! 4.5 stars!

This is my first review in ProgArchives and I don't think I could choose a better album to be my first!

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Cary Grace is releasing albums since 2004, experienced in composing and guitar playing. Her new production now appears as a double CD album - a really refreshing discovery as for my impression. When starting to listen to the opening song The Scarab first you may think of such a singer/songwriter girl we have plenty of. It's a really mellow acoustic ballad - 'from horizon to horizon ...' - a nice refrain - whoops - but then you will soon take notice of synths and psychedelic guitar coming up which sounds quite off the beaten path. This is interesting and makes curious.

The songs are instrumental half way through although Cary has a charming voice. This might convey that she doesn't make the most with her talents. But obviously there are other preferences too - the cornucopia of VCS3 synthesizer elements and the compositions as such which are not fitted to herself exclusively - it's the whole ensemble which impresses on 'Perpetual Motion'. Finally the result is variety based on a collective work and covering diverse progressive rock styles.

For example we later hit upon the spacey chilling Cassiopeia, 1572 provided with a looping behaviour and wonderfully swirling and bubbling goodies all around. And the long track Queen of Pentacles definetely can be redefined as 'Queen of Perpetual Motion' if it was up to me - wow - a mainly improvised monster track contrasted by some vocal passages. What an energetic performance developing from floydy psychedelic to jazz rock(!) over the course of time. Synthesizer, electric guitar and violin are harmonizing as well as duelling - this is amazing!

Second disc starts with one of several short interludes you will find named Between the Pages - seemingly representing something like a backbone for the whole production. The folk tinged Dreamcatcher brings another new facet as well as Helleborus - more blues coloured for the start and evolving to another nonchalant jam with Graham Clark's violin support. Very impressing up to this point - and the title track is still missing ...

... 'it must be a perpetual motion' - they let it flow and take time for more than twenty minutes! An exciting laid-back spacey one basically, repetitive bass, hypnotizing synthesizer and hallucinogenic guitar appearance. There's so much tension here - hard to describe. Someday I decided to put on my headphones to listen once more - and realized that I was definetely too hasty to assign the crown. Not a song which unfolds its beauty at the first glance - but then ...

'Perpetual Motion' is delivering structure and improvisation quasi emancipated, a well-balanced progressive rock production consisting of a bunch of impressions. A great step forward compared to what I know from her previous albums. This foreshadows some other surprises just trying to be a little bit visionary. Highly recommended by all means - don't miss that - 4.5 stars really!
