|New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
From soulful songs of love and loss to empowering anthems of courage and heroism, Meghan Cary is renowned for her innate ability to connect with others through authentic story telling. Now, on the heels of her latest album hitting the top of the charts, she is taking her passion for prose one step further by unveiling her debut book Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs on March 8 - International Women's Day.
The companion to her critically-acclaimed album Sing Louder, this mesmerizing collection of essays provides fans with a deeply introspective look into the inspiration behind her most profound album to date. Featuring 10 first-person stories, each dedicated to a different song, the book begins with an eloquent forward from the author before delving into the raw, compassionate and sometimes downright hilarious side of one of Philadelphia's favorite female folk rock artists.
"I've been telling my story from the stage for years - in song and in words. But I really enjoyed digging even deeper into the stories behind the songs on "Sing Louder" to write this book", said Cary. "So much good can come from sharing our stories. When we hear and relate to someone else's story, we're inspired to share our own, and maybe even write a different ending. I wanted to release the book on International Women's Day as my thank you to all the women who have been courageous enough to raise their voices and be heard. It's time for all of us to sing louder!"
Sing Louder: The Stories Behind The Songs is 35 pages and includes original photography from Cary, as well as art work and imagery that has inspired her songwriting process. It was edited by Linda
Waverka and is being self-published by Cary and Peter
Farrell, her husband and musical partner.
Meghan Cary: The Stories Behind The Songs will be available at live performances, as well as online at www.MeghanCary.com starting March 8.
