Product Description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Amazon.com

Caitlin Cary's 2002 solo full-length debut served notice that Ryan Adams wasn't the only Whiskeytown alum deserving of attention. Aptly titled While You Weren't Looking, that disc was a surprisingly graceful, fully confident first effort. For the follow-up, Cary and her newly seasoned road band again recorded with producer Chris Stamey, and the result is another accomplished collection that adds richer arrangements and instrumentation to Cary's mix of rock, folk, and country tunes. Stately peals of electric guitar shimmer between verses of the ode to laziness "Sleepin' in on Sunday." Cary steps out for violin solos on "Please Break My Heart" and the twangy title cut. Whether lending color to ballads like "The Next One" or a bouncy soul kick to the up-tempo "You Don't Have to Hide," ex-Jayhawks pianist Jen Gunderman is everywhere. It's a credit to Cary that neither the newfound swirl of sounds nor the bucketful of big-name guests--among them Mary Chapin Carpenter, Don Dixon, Mitch Easter, and Springsteen cellist Jane Scarpantoni--ever threaten to steal the spotlight from her solid songs and expressive soprano. --Anders Smith Lindall

I picked out this CD based on an Entertainment Weekly review, and haven't regretted it. My criteria for "good album" is simple: I listen to it non-stop while I'm at work, and if some of the tunes stick in my head, and that's a good thing, then it's a good album.
"I'm Staying Out" is full of some lovely tunes, and Cary's songwriting is wonderful. Well-produced, this album puts the emphasis on Cary's vocal interpretation and emotional lyrics. This album has some great guest stars doing backup vocals on it, but if you want to listen to those guest stars, check out their solo albums: the focus here is on Cary.
"Empty Rooms," the first song on the album, is a slower, melodic effort about a woman recovering from a broken marriage. The lyrics poignantly and vividly sketch for us a woman left "with an empty womb, a beautiful house full of empty rooms." The track is one that features Mary Chapin Carpenter on backup vocals, but the emphasis here is on "backup."
The second track, "Sleepin' in on Sundays," is one of the better songs on the album. A song for anyone that's ever relaxed a Sunday away with a loved one, the production and melody perfectly recall a lazy Sunday.
"You Don't Have to Hide" is slightly more upbeat tune, with someone encouraging a lover to open up and stop hiding their pain. Not one of my favorites on the album, but the lyrics definitely recall the uncertainty of opening oneself up in a relationship.
The fourth track, "The Next One," is about how lonely we can all be as we search desperately for that special someone. The production and melody vividly sketch the feeling of loneliness.

I really enjoyed Ms. Cary's work with Whiskeytown, and her first solo LP, "While You Weren't Looking." This cd is quite good-strong song writing, gentle vocals that play well off of the musical arrangements, and a wonderful backing band. Among the topics she writes about are a broken marriage, sleeping in on Sunday with your lover, about letting your feelings out, a friend she's lost contact with, and she does it in a way that really makes you think about your own life. There's a nice mix of folk, rock, pop and country-sometimes within the same song like "Sleeping in on Sunday." The one straight up country song is called "Please Break My Heart" and it is a real gem. I can imagine Patsy Cline singing this song if she were still alive! "Cello Girl" is a rock song that really grows on you with repeated listens-it's one of my favorite songs on the cd. The closing song is called "I Want To Learn To Waltz With You," and it's the only one that Ms. Cary didn't write herself. It's a song of real grace and beauty, and she does a beautiful version of it here. (Just for the record, Peter Holsapple wrote it, and it was performed by his former band The Continental Drifters on the cd Vermilion.) A must have for all Caitlin Cary fans, and anyone that enjoys well-thought out songs that give equal prominence to the vocals, lyrical content, and the music that accompanies it.

She was an integral part of the alt-country band Whiskeytown with her fiddle and backing vocal work, but Caitlin Cary often found herself overshadowed by the band's lead ringmaster Ryan Adams (perhaps our era's Gram Parsons minus Gram's chemical excesses?). Since the band's break-up, Caitlin has managed to step out on her own with solid results. Her 2003 album I'M STAYING OUT is proof of that.

Although recorded in her native North Carolina with veteran alt-country producer Chris Stamey, and featuring backing help from Tift Merritt's band the Carbines and Mary Chapin Carpenter (whom Caitlin occasionally sounds like), I'M STAYING OUT has as much folk, rock, and R&B influences as it does country, with Caitlin's intricate violin work providing a lot of its traditional country base. "Please Break My Heart", its ironic title notwithstanding, frequently sounds like a long-lost Patsy Cline hit; while "You Don't Have To Hide" occasionally evokes the classic country-rock of Linda Ronstadt. It's hard not to note such influences, but that doesn't mean Caitlin is a derivative singer or a mere imitator of legendary artists. Indeed, with Nashville having succumbed to corporate greed and a maniacal obsession with pop crossovers, artists like Caitlin who evoke legends of the past while plowing their own unique ground are sorely needed and very welcome. I'M STAYING OUT is a fine second album for Caitlin, and here's hoping that she has many more great albums like it up her sleeve in the very near future.

Caitlin Cary's solo debut last year following her tour with Whiskeytown was such a stunning achievement; it was hard to fathom how she could surpass it. The answer is she couldn't. But she equaled it with "I'm Staying Out" (Yep Roc), a disc that expands on the musical foundation of her debut.
Like her first record, ""Staying Out" opens with a beautiful tune, "Empty Rooms," showcasing Cary's voice and a backing band that includes former Jayhawks' keyboard player Jen Gunderman, who contributes nice touches throughout. There are fine contributions from several guests including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Don Dixon, Springsteen cellist Jane Scarpantoni and pop master Mitch Easter.
Chris Stamey is back behind the producer's console, but this is a more varied record sonically, grounded by Cary's honeyed vocals. "Please Break My Heart" is a good ol' country waltz k.d. lang would die to record. "You Don't Have to Hide" and "Cello Girl" are catchy rockers. "In a While" is a piano-framed meditation on loss.
Most of the songs center around relationships and transitions. In "Beauty Fades Away," Cary has to the courage to wonder aloud whether a lover will still be there in the dimming of the day. In "Empty Rooms," a woman steels herself, refusing to cry after being abandoned. On "Sleepin' In on Sunday," she celebrates the leisure of a weekend morning -- and afternoon -- in his arms.
From beginning to end, "I'm Staying Out" is a fine sophomore outing, appealing to mainstream pop listeners as well as alt country devotees.
