Carrie Baxter seeks closure in ‘Pray’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Waterford native Carrie Baxter has kicked off 2021 with the release of her new single ‘Pray’.

Moving over to London in 2009 to study at the London School of Musical Theatre, Carrie’s been steadily honing her craft since and released her debut single ‘Lady’ in 2019.

Her latest effort, ‘Pray’ is a head nodding track and its laidback energy is indebted to a more traditional hip hop sound while simultaneously benefitting an injection of soul from Baxter’s trademark vocal palette.

Speaking on the song Carrie said, “I wrote ‘Pray’ in 2018, it is the last song from a  batch of very honest stories I wrote about a tragic love affair.  The lyrics fell out of the pen and the beat is in homage to my first love: hiphop. It feels good to open the year with a track that I have held close for a long time.”
