Carey is founding member and driving force behind the band GROOVESPEAK, out of Leadville Colorado, which has been rocking the mountains since 2003. He has also continued to play solo acoustic gigs(everything from apres ski to weddings). Currently he and his founding partner from Groovespeak, Brian Woodward, are writing songs and working on a new album(or two). Carey started his music career touring the southeast; where he played with such groups as The Fringe, Psilly Psyche Band, The Spores, Planet Earth, Shot, and Group W. He opened for The Grapes, the Black Crowes, and Col. Bruce Hampton, among others. His first CD, Planet Earth-The Circle was recorded in Athens GA, and includes grammy award winner Derek Trucks on the title cut. Carey first played in CO in 1991 with PPB(again in 1993-see music clips), and began coming here semi-regularly in 1996 to play with 2 Miles High and the Cloud City Fatties. In Colorado, he has opened for Shakedown Street as well as Jeff Francis(of Dispatch) and Barefoot Truth.
