At the NoHo Arts Center on August 15th, in an evening generously hosted by Kevin Bailey and James J. Mellon, a very special night of original music by Paris Carney (and special guests) played out, accompanied by the World Premiere of “Battles of You,” her first music video, directed by “up and comer,” Nick Borges!
The admission to the concert was only $10. For $20, guests were invited to a special reception and an autographed copy of the DVD “Battles of You” for $20.
Paris Carney was born in New York City, but raised on both the East and Left Coasts. Paris comes from a family of musicians and took a leave of absence from The New School in NYC to tour and record an album under the Interscope label with her big brothers’ band, formerly Reeve Carney and The Revolving Band, now CARNEY, whose just-released single, “Love Me Chase Me,” is in “New and Noteworthy” on iTunes. Her own songwriting skills eventually caused Paris to let the air out of the “oohs and ahhs” and front her own band. Now, with a guitar endorsement from Daisy Rock (whom she met at the last NAMM show), Paris can be heard all over Los Angeles either with her own band, singing jazz standards at Teddy’s on a Thursday night, or singing and recording backup for various artists. Paris also fronts the band, Soul Puppet. She recently signed a licensing deal with DL Music. www.myspace.com/pariscarneymusic or www.myspace.com/soulpuppet.
