Todd Carey signs management deal with Rock Ridge Music

Brooklyn-based and Chicago-born singer-songwriter Todd Carey has inked a management deal with Newark, NJ-based music services company Rock Ridge Music. Says Carey of the partnership: “I’ve been building a fire with my fans’ help, and it’s very exciting to have Rock Ridge Music take notice and step in to elevate what I’m already doing. I couldn’t be more optimistic about working with this amazing team.”

Says Rock Ridge Music President Jason Spiewak of the deal with Carey: “We at Rock Ridge Music are stoked to be working with Todd Carey and his team. Todd's charisma is contagious and together we will broaden his audience on tour, on the web, on the radio, and everywhere else fans are enjoying great pop music!”

Carey is planning to go into the studio to work on a new album this calendar year; even though he has 40 songs written already for possible inclusion on the album, he plans to continue writing during the recording process. “I’ve embraced the newer industry model and have put out an EP and singles since my last album came out,” says Carey. “But I’m looking forward to getting into the studio and working on a full album’s worth of material.” Already, he’s begun working with Lion’s Share, the production folks behind Andy Grammer’s Hot AC hit, “Keep Your Head Up.”

Carey’s most recent release, 2010’s “After The Morning After” EP, hit the Top 40 on iTunes’ Pop Chart and was produced by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, Five for Fighting). Previously, he released three solo albums (“Elevate,” “Revolving World,” and “Watching Waiting” [which came out through Universal’s Fontana Distribution]) and an additional EP (“Whitefish Bay Sessions”). Carey is no stranger to touring and has criss-crossed the country repeatedly, playing over 250 shows in support of “After The Morning After.” He’s toured with and performed on stage with numerous artists including Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Keaton Simons and Matt Duke. Music from his “Watching Waiting” album was featured in the film “Palo Alto” and on MTV's “The Real World.” Billboard magazine called “Watching Waiting” “…custom-made for the top of the pop charts... with a witty edge.”
