Carl Storie’s career began in Indiana at the young age of 15. By 17, Carl signed his first recording contract with RCA Records in NY and recorded his first album with the Chosen Few at the historic Chess Records studio in Chicago. In the early seventies, Carl began his tenure as the lead singer with the Faith Band.
Faith Band was an American rock band from Indianapolis, Indiana. From 1973 to 1979, they released 5 albums: Faith in 1973, Excuse Me, I Just Cut an Album in 1977, Rock'n Romance in 1978 and Face to Face and Vital Signs in 1979. Faith gained national popularity in late 1978/79 with Rock'n Romance, which contained the Carl Storie written song Dancin' Shoes, of which Nigel Olsson's cover of the song would become a Top 18 hit, while Faith Band's version would reach #54 on the charts. This was a rare moment in music history—two different bands simultaneously competing on the charts with the same song. Although most Hoosiers would readily admit that Faith Band had the better version, Nigel’s version scored best on the charts with his international following as the drummer/singer for Uriah Heep, Elton John and others. With Dancin' Shoes unprecedented dual promotion, there's no doubt the song attained worldwide acclaim and remains a rock 'n' roll classic today.
After Faith disbanded, Carl Storie and Faith bassist Mark Cawley formed the duo "Blinding Tears" in 1985, and released one album: Blinding Tears on Riva Records in 1986. Carl Storie released one solo album, Carl Storie in 1999. Today, Carl’s primary focus is writing/recording songs for his new album.
