Biography

Gina Carey is an American independent filmmaker and soul R&B / gospel music singer based in Palm Springs, California, United States. Formerly known as Gina Green, Gina has since remarried and changed her name to Gina Carey.

Early life

Gina was born in Chicago and raised in Los Angeles.

Film career

Gina Carey is currently a filmmaker who manages her own independent film company, Gina Carey Films. The indie film company, which has successfully produced six feature films as of 2019, is based in the Coachella Valley and makes use of local talent and resources. As the first African-American female filmmaker in Palm Springs, Gina had originally started out as a self-taught, self-funded filmmaker who eventually expanded onto building Gina Carey Films.

Gina Carey Films' first movie, “The Unexpected”, premiered in 2016. Subsequently, Gina Carey Films has produced other indie films such as “One Year Pact.”

In 2017, Gina launched the 1st annual CV (Coachella Valley) Indie Film Awards, which was awarded to independent filmmakers producing low-budget films. The 2nd annual CV Indie Film Awards were continued in 2018.

Music career

Gina has recorded three albums as Gina Green, which are In His Time, Changes, and Tell 'Um. She is known for her vibrant spirit and silky-smooth vocal style, and is often compared stylistically to 1980s pop diva Stephanie Mills. Her music blends elements of contemporary R&B with 1970s soul and modern-day hip hop to create a neo soul gospel flavor.

Gina has performed on the same stage with Gospel artists Tonex, J Moss, TBN's Bill & Rene Morris, The Gospel Gangsters, two-time Dove Award nominees God's Original Gangstaz, Brent Jones, and many others.

Gina Carey is the founder and CEO of Gico Music, an independent music label and entertainment company.

Gina's debut album, In His Time, was released on Grapetree Records in 1997 under her then-legal name, Gina Brown, and sold over 10,000 copies worldwide. The album was received particularly well in Europe, topping out at number two on the U.K. Gospel charts. 2003's Changes was released independently and sold at a respectable pace. The planned release for Tell 'Um, her third album on Rite-Step Records, fell through in mid-2005 as the label folded before it even got off the ground. The album was later picked up by Nashville-based Trendency Records and released nationally in July 2006. The singles Hiding Place and Testimony received moderate airplay across the U.S. and in Europe. Both the Changes and Tell 'Um albums were produced by Isom Green, Jr., who has worked with Dr. Dre, Whitney Houston, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg.
