Review by Daniel Hoyt & Staff
Eileen Carey’s arrangement of “Jingle Bell Rock” is a cool little take on a traditional holiday favorite that adds sparkle without taking away the original credibility of the song.
Fans of every genre will love Eileen's version of this timeless song. The song combines country-pop and rock elements. Vocally Eileen has a nice country pop-rock radio-ready sound while the original nature of the tune retains it's classic 50's rock and roll vibe.
This arrangement has a very nice groove to it. There's a wonderful sax solo that plays with jolly soul. Background harmonies are perfect adding a nostalgic vibe. Eileen's vocal interpretation is very well-done as she has a natural vocal talent that is expressive and highly enjoyable.
Overall, a Christmas song has very good potential for any artist from a marketing stance. Eileen's rendition of "Jingle Bell Rock" has the potential to be a charting holiday hit. Eileen Carey takes a stab at the Country Christmas market, which is perfect for any artist, and she hits the mark spot on. The arrangement is wonderful, the musicianship is tight, and Eileen's vocals are expressive and fun - it certainly has all the characteristics to become a hit on everyone’s Christmas Playlist this Holiday Season.

About Eileen Carey
Passion, positivity, and persistence are the three words that best describe award-winning country pop singer Eileen Carey. Carey’s endless enthusiasm, and determination to see the good in life have produced a career that teaches that “slow and steady may win the race, but genuine and likable earn the winner much applause.”
Originally from Ohio, the California-based Carey is described by Elmore Magazine as “a little bit cosmopolitan, a little bit country, and a whole lotta musical chameleon, one who effortlessly blends pop, rock, and country music.” Masterfully mixing those genres has provided Carey with numerous awards and accolades over the past three years, including the Los Angeles Music Awards 2017 Live Country Music Performer, and 2016 Female Country Artist, as well as the 2018 New Music Weekly Country Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Following in the footsteps of what The Hype Magazine calls a “long line of radio hits,” Carey’s recent single “Anything That Reminds Me of You” reached the top of the New Music Weekly radio charts in the spring of 2019. The New Music Weekly placement has solidified Carey’s seemingly permanent residence on national radio charts. Her title of AC/Hot AC Breakthrough Artist of 2019 put her in the company of other skyrocketing artists such as Post Malone, Five Seconds of Summer, and the duo of Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Perhaps most indicative of her blossoming career is the who’s-who of legends with whom Carey has shared a stage, including Wilson Phillips, Don McLean, Jefferson Starship, Rita Coolidge, The Motels, Johnny Rivers, Peter Noone, Nelson, and Tal Bachman.
Whether it is the romantic fantasy of “In the Air,” the sad-but-wise poignancy of “Let It Go,” or the sisterly advice to an unhinged friend in “Bottle Your Crazy Up,” audiences sing along to lyrics that reveal Carey’s genius for capturing the full spectrum of the human experience. Carey’s exceptionally positive take on life is revealed in songs such as “Faith, “In the Air,” and “Bring on the Big,” and this unfettered positivity has inspired the songstress to take part in several projects aimed at making Carey, as well as those around her, healthier and happier human beings. These projects include promoting physical and mental health via kickboxing and time spent outdoors, caring for animals through her work with FixNation, and providing thoughtful parenting advice on her blog The Music Mom.
Based on her rapidly growing fan-base and the industry buzz surrounding each new release, it is safe to say that Carey’s approach is working.
