Carey briefly describes each of the songs on MOVIN’ ON. "That Was Her This Is Now" is "about being the new woman in a man’s life;’ "What Goes Around" opines that "what you put out (in the Universe) comes back to you;" "Moving On" (the title track) talks about "when relationships, passion, and communication have run their course, it’s time to move on;" "Stand" is about "never giving up on your dreams;" "Do I Dare" discusses "taking the next step in life;" "He’s Not Mr. Right, He’s Mr. Right Now" is "just having fun in your present relationship…with no ties."

"Out With The Girls" finds Carey singing that "girls – poor, young, rich, and old – all need a night out on the town!;’ "Faith" details "being in the wrong relationship and you don’t know it…you’ve gotta have a little faith in yourself." "Newsflash" ends the disc on a positive note: "when you think things are bad, life can turn on a dime…don’t ever give up!"

A prolific songwriter, Carey’s "Hollywood" (from her most recent album, HEARTS OF TIME) was nominated in the "Country Single Of The Year" category for the 2008 L.A. Music Awards. Carey is nominated in the "Best Country Artist" category for the 2008 Los Angeles South Bay Music Awards, happening February 21, 2009 at the L.A. Sports Arena in downtown Los Angeles, Calif.

Carey is a dynamic live performer that crosses musical genres. "Carey’s music is reminiscent of the Stones tapping into country with a female Jagger," wrote Doug Deringer in respected national trade magazine, MUSIC CONNECTION, during a review of Carey’s August 2008 show at The Derby in Hollywood. "Her vocal style is a bit Reba McIntire with a touch of Bonnie Raitt thrown in…Carey delivers very solid vocals; she and her band play well together," the review continues, "and have a tight, cohesive feel that can only come from experienced and well-rehearsed players…Carey’s material is strong enough to find a wide audience in the country/pop market…could take her music to the next level."

Brian Lush, Producer and Host of American Radio Network program ROCKWIRED, says, "I am personally very excited to see this album hit the shelves…!" Christi Broekemeier of the Hollywood-based publication ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE writes, "on Eileen Carey’s new single "That Was Her This Is Now," the country singer from Southern California uses her Nashville native, seemingly easy-flowing twang to tell the universal country-themed song of being the new woman in a man’s life, to great effect…it is the poetry of the lyrics that country fans and non-fans can relate to. Eileen’s voice is warm, welcoming and full of may find yourself falling for the redhead with the catchy tunes and endearing voice."
