When you're as naturally talented and driven as Carré Callaway is, it's easy to get ahead of yourself. As a young girl growing up in Denver Colorado, it was always clear that she was going places, and getting there fast. Carré (pronounced "Car-ray") taught herself to play guitar at the age of 13 and began performing in the local folk scene almost immediately afterwards. She had the kind of book smarts to gain so much extra credit at high school that she ended up graduating two years before everyone else her age did. And by the time she was 17, she was opening for Nine Inch Nails at their arena-sized shows for their 2005 With Teeth tour- at Trent Reznor's personal behest. "When I told him I play music and he asked to hear some of it, I think it was a joke," she remembers of the chance meeting at Reznor's New Orleans studio that sparked his interest. "The songs I had written at the time weren't the kind of thing you would expect he would be into. I think he expected me to suck and he'd get a laugh out of it. But he immediately said that I should record something."
