So, I’m sucker for two things that have drawn me to Cady Groves: acoustic guitar and female vocals. Her music rings with those two, barely drifting from the path with occasional supporting strings and tinker toys. Her range and dictation of voice and the creative clear guitar riffs can pull a listener in and refuse to let go.
Lyrically, it’s very interpersonal and direct. They dive deep into her own soul and life giving a long look into a 20 year old’s life of complication and a “take on the world” attitude. It’s a wonderful thing to see a writer not hold anything back. Her words always seem to have a bouncy tempo that captivates and entertains.
She has released two EPs capturing about 12 original songs all available on iTunes for not a ridiculous price. I highly recommend “A Life of a Pirate” if you’re into acoustic folk pop. I was hesitant for a long time but once I purchased ALoaP I don’t regret it a bit.
What’s also awesome about her is that she keeps it real with her fans. She’s constantly on Twitter and replies to messages on myspace. Cady also does stickam, which is interactive webcam chat. She’s very involved in what she’s doing, she knows that it takes real work to reach what you want; that it wont be handed out on a silver platter.
