Over the last two years, Gina Carey has been one of the busiest singers in music. What’s been a hectic couple of years, started with the release of Melodic in August 2011, which Gina wrote, arranged and produced. Melodic went on to reach number one in the UK Soul Charts and was her fifth solo album. Then on St. Valentines’ Day this year, Gina released the first of three albums she’d release in 2012. Love Letters, was a fusion of  Nu-Soul, smooth soul, R&B and jazz and was released on the same day as husband John’s Smooth, Soulful and Funky. Then just three months later. Gina would release her second album of 2012.

Gina’ second album of 2012, Love Letters 2 was an innovative idea, which I’m sure other artists will use. Love Letters 2 featured four tracks from Melodic and Love Letters, plus a trio of tracks from Gina’s forthcoming album Live, Love and Laugh. As well as featuring some much-loved favorites, Live, Love and Laugh gave listeners to hear a sneak-preview of what her new album would sound like. However, fans of Gina Carey’s music are is for a feast of music over the next few weeks. 

The first course in the musical feast that Gina Carey is about serve up, is the release of her new single Live, Love and Laugh, which I’ve been given a sneak-preview of. Then on September 4th, Gina will be releasing the first installment of her new album Live, Love and Laugh. Unlike previous albums, Gina’s tempting listeners with three volumes of Live, Love and Laugh. Volume 1, entitled Live will be released on 4th September, with Volume 2 Love released on January 1st 2012 and Volume 3 Laugh being released on 1st May 2013. Later this week, I’ll be reviewing Live, Love and Laugh, but before that, I’ll tell you about Gina’s new single Live, Love and Laugh.

Swathes of grand strings build the drama up before Live, Love and Laugh reveals its soulful delights. A flourish of strings signal the arrival of Gina’s cascading vocal. Gina’s vocal is heartfelt, full of passion and positivity, while she adds multi-tracked backing vocals. Melodic keyboards, crispy drums, guitar and percussion combine, as this paean to positivity unfolds. With a mixture of emotion, and sincerity, Gina delivers her vocal. She does so as if she means every word. Meanwhile, the arrangement unfolds in waves, with keyboards, drums and guitars key to the single’s sound. When combined with an uptempo, catchy arrangement, the result is an irresistible and hook-laden single, that will have you wanting to hear much, much more of Gina Carey’s music. Luckily for you, I’ll be reviewing the first volume of Live, Love and Laugh later this week, which I’m sure you’ll love.
