Edie Carey

“Accidental Poet,” one of Edie Carey’s earliest songs, describes a particularly eloquent friend, but could just as easily refer to Carey herself and the circuitous and serendipitous route that led her to become one of the country’s most notable young songwriters. Somehow, all of the seemingly unrelated turns – from her intention to become a doctor, to a tiny music room in the basement of a Morningside Heights’ chapel, to a year in Italy – managed to steer her towards music.
