MICHAEL CAREY Producer. Guitarist. Vocalist.
Michael Carey is an award-winning composer, producer, songwriter and session musician equally at home writing, producing, mixing, and/or playing on albums by platinum and cutting edge acts including Escape The Fate, Idina Menzel, Mary Lambert, Gavin James, Pablo Alboran (6x platinum) and composing for commercials, themes and underscore for clients including Disney, Miramax, CBS, TBS, Coca-Cola, Outback Steakhouse and NASCAR to name a few. His recent work co-writing and producing Santana singer Andy Vargas’s debut single “The Beat” garnered a 2016 Hollywood Music In Media Award (R&B/Soul), and his 2015 co-write of Escape The Fate’s hit single “Alive” helped propel the band’s album to #2 on the Billboard hard rock charts.
Underlying his diverse body of work is a focus on fundamentals; emotional impact, structure, storytelling, and execution that remain constant whether writing songs, producing albums or scoring for pictures.
While much of his work - writing, composing, mixing - is by necessity, solitary, his greatest joy is in collaborating with artists, musicians, and directors.
