Electric Fetus

S. Carey is the moniker of Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based multiinstrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Sean Carey. Over the past decade, Carey has fostered his flourishing solo career via themes of nature and sustainability, songwriting built from jazz beginnings, and heartfelt, emotive lyricism. His latest and fourth album, Break Me Open, is best described in his own words:

In Break Me Open, I confronted darkness, I wrote about fear, I looked at love from different angles, I left it all out on the field. These past couple years have been the hardest of my life: full of grief, loss, and change. I feel like I had two choices. I could run from life, turn away, grow cold, resort to drugs, run and keep running. Or, I could give myself a deep look within. I could dig deep where the pain lives, where fear is festering, to try shed a new skin and come back a better person. Everyone is so far from perfect.This is not a ďdivorceĒ album. And while going through that has shook me to my core, leaving me at times, wondering who I am, and where to go, this record is bigger. Itís about love - past, present, and future. Itís about fatherhood - the overwhelming feeling of deep love for my kids and the melancholy of watching them grow up right before my eyes. Itís about accepting my faults and wrongdoings, exposing myself, and trying to know myself better than I did the day before. But above the darkness, itís a message of hope, honesty, and growth. Itís a call to be vulnerable: Break Me Open.
