Edie Carey in the Paste Rock 'n' Reel at Sea Cayamo Contest

News from Edie Carey in my inbox this morning:

I just heard the exciting news that I am one of 20 semi-finalists in the Paste Rock 'n' Reel at Sea Cayamo contest. If I win, I will get to perform aboard the Cayamo Cruise in February '09 alongside Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin, Lyle Lovett, Brandi Carlile, The Indigo Girls, and more! (gasp)

Now that I made it to the semi-finals, I need to gather as many votes as possible to advance to the finals. I would be so grateful for your vote(s). You can vote once per day per email address, and the way they've got it set up, you get to listen to a bit of each artist's song to vote. I just did it, and it took me about 7 minutes.
It's a bit more time-consuming than your basic select-and-vote,
but it's a great way to hear some wonderful new artists.

Voting begins today, and it will be up for 2 weeks:

In addition to voting for Edie, you should check out some other great songwriters, including one of Minneapolis' own--the great Brianna Lane.

I've been trying to remember to vote for Edie, early and often. I hope she gets to go.
