Out of the Fast Lane
Artist Information Instrumentation Carolyn Justice-Vocals, Fender Flower Telecaster guitar, Dot semi hollow guitar, and acoustic guitar. This album was recorded in Nashville at the United Artist Tower. Biography I write my own songs including lyrics, melodies, and arrangements. Even though I was born in St. Louis, Mo., I grew up in the country and most influences came from spending summers on my grandparent's two hundred acre farm in the ozarks of Missouri. Those memories helped me to paint pictures through song lyrics. Grandma's diary is a true rendition of what life was like on that farm and 'yes' Grandma really did have a diary. Very upbeat tunes are my favorites but I like writing a mix, even some grassy stuff and I love ROCKin guitar in country music. My original tunes and vocal style and phrasing was influenced a great deal by a mix of Elvis Presley, Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Sammy Smith, and Shania Twain. Although my vocals are mostly compared to Patsy Cline in press reviews. Of course other events in my life triggered ideas for songs and I try to write positive messages and walk the listener through the story with colorful images through lyrics. The melody and lyrics usually come to me at the same time but I do also get a song title in my head and then build around that. This is my second album but the first for having written all my own songs which I also produced. I have had airplay all over the world for which I have received several awards.
