Up-and-coming country singer-songwriter Carter Faith has released her debut EP, Let Love Be Love, available now on all digital and streaming platforms. Signed to Altenda and Pound It Out Loud, she recently performed the lead track, “Joyride,” during her Ryman Auditorium debut, closing out the sold-out Whiskey Jam 10-year anniversary show.
Originally from Davidson, North Carolina, Faith taught herself guitar and piano, and soon after began writing songs. She has received over eleven million streams with her recent releases and has shared the stage with artists like Cole Swindell, Old Dominion, and Chris Young.
“I got the inspiration for the EP title Let Love Be Love from a really beautiful poem by Morgan Harper Nichols called Let July be July,” shares Faith. “This poem struck me because life is so fast and I for one am always worrying about the future and wanting it to speed up, but I have found that makes us miss out on most of life itself.”
The songwriter recently delivered leading track “Joyride” that has already amassed over two million streams and counting. Faith gave listeners a sneak peek of what’s to come with acoustic project The Dusk Sessions. The recordings included original tracks “Leaving Tennessee” and “Easy Pill,” as well as a reimagined version of Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.”
“As I put these individual songs together into a group and tried to put my finger on how they all somehow connected, I discovered that they each were completely unapologetic,” she adds. “The songs hold so much emotion but they don’t analyze these emotions, they just ‘let them be.’ When it comes to life and all the beauties that it holds, I don’t want to waste time analyzing it but instead just basking in the craziness of it all. Let Love Be Love is about truly experiencing life and love, and everything in between.”
