Recently we got the chance to sit down with indie singer/songwriter Cary Brothers. Brothers is the founder of the widely popular travelling singer/songwriter showcase called the Hotel Cafe Tour. The tour over the years has had a rotating cast of talented artists such as Ingrid Michaelson, William Fitzsimmons, Sara Barielles and more, many of whom have broken onto the scene with the help of the tour. Cary himself first gained wider spread notoriety after his song "Blue Eyes" appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Garden State. And in 2007 he released his first full length LP titled Who You Are , which includes his hit single "Ride".
We sat down with Cary and touched on how the Hotel Cafe tour got started, his early beginnings in film, songwriting, the music business, how he met Zach Braff and more.
