Soulful Sundays at the Market with Carrie and the SoulShakers

Carie and The Soul Shakers are an elixir, a potion, an aphrodisiac.

Carie Anne MacAlpine with her voice and Vinny Johnson with his guitar, are the primary chemists. They are the medicine woman and man for an aching soul or a broken heart. Their numerous performances in the Bay Area have ulminated in the the building of an electric and ecstatic altar where band, fans and newcomers become the congregation. Attend! you will dance. You will sing. You will be overcome by the soul. The grit will get you. You will not be the same.

Johnson and MacAlpine found instant chemistry from the start. In the fall of 2013, MacAlpine had been discouraged by not finding a sound she imagined. She approached local guitar veteran, Johnson, to seek his help in closing out two of her remaining year end shows before she quit the music scene. A year later the two had written more than a dozen songs, produced an EP, gathered a stellar line-up of fellow musicians, and racked up prominent gigs in the Monterey Bay area.
