Blush was a collaborative project with Cary and Chris Sidwell/Alf Hardy of Crokodile Tears.
Cary had been playing bass guitar with the Roy Wood Big Band. Recording original songs under the name of ‘Blush’ enabled her to keep a fluid band line up and change musicians as needed. The ‘Independence Day’, album was released in 2006. This was the first album of totally original material featuring 14 songs written by Jon Lord, Myself, and Graham Wale with the exception of ‘Loving you baby’ written with Phil Brown of local reggae band ‘City Dread’. The songs were all sung and played in a poppy style by me with help from Alf Hardy who was the engineer at Cabin Studio in Coventry at the time. The album came together over a couple of years. One track ‘Obsessed With You’ appeared on several compilation albums released Worldwide and Cary travelled to Berlin in 2004 with Barry Tomes Gotham Records label to promote a compilation album on his label.
The follow up album ‘More Blush’ was written and produced over four years working with Alf Hardy at Cabin Studio and collaborations with local musicians Crokodile Tears. Two songs ‘Strong’ and ‘Runaway’ feature Crokodile Tears vocalist Amy Myers. The track ‘Seven Years’ with backing vocals from Chris and Amy received airplay on the BBC Coventry and Warwickshire Saturday night show ‘Introducing’. Several tracks are on the playlist of ‘Girls rock radio’ in the USA. Cary plays bass /rhythm guitars throughout the album singing vocals and backing harmonies. The album was also released as instrumentals called ‘Less Blush’
