Welcome to my musical world! I'm Carol Annette. I reside in P-town just 30 short miles east of Los Angeles. With 30 plus some years of songwriting and performing in a range of bands (Four Parts, The Grip, Metal of the Road, The Motherfolkers, and Technopagan).....I finally decided that it was time to put my first solo album together. The songs are a combination of older songs I have written and never managed to record and more recent material from the past couple of years. "To Hell and Forward" seemed a fitting title since some of the earliest tunes are from my years of teenage angst. As the years progessed I was able to find my way out of that hellish time in my life into a more positive space (for the most part!). Its was fun to rediscover songs from my past and breath some new life into them and of course writing new songs always feels like a sacred experience to me. Over the years I did a range of syles including blues based rock, folk rock, singer/songwriter and most recently my dabbling in electronic dance music. Some of my favorite artists include...Tori Amos, Bjork, The Eurythmics, Radiohead, NIN, James Vincent McMorrow, David Bowie, P.J. Harvey, Ani De Franco, The Cure, MGMT, Robert Plant, Sublime, The Smashing Pumpkins, Beck and U2. I can't fail to mention that I consider myself a student from the school of Pink Floyd. I didn't set out to emulate anyone in particular.....but I'm sure some of their influences may creep into my own little musical bubble.
