Carried Away is a Canadian Contemporary Christian musical group made of Colleen Walker, Pam Walker, and Christine Prankard.


Pam Walker and Colleen Walker are sisters and along with their cousin Christine Prankard form the group Carried Away. As a family, they have been singing together as long as anyone can remember. It wasn't until the year 2000 however, that they became "Carried Away". It was at that point that they heard the song "Carried Away" by Sonicflood. Listening to the song, the girls were inspired by Jeff Deyo as he sang the chorus with such passion and conviction, "I want to get Carried Away." The song immediately struck a chord in each of them. They decided to make a career out of singing.

Eventually they traveled to Nashville, TN and while they were there the girls had the opportunity to meet with producer Otto Price (Producer of BarlowGirl, Out of Eden, GRITS). Shortly into their first conversation with Otto, the girls discovered a common theme. Otto Price just happened to be a co-writer for the Sonicflood song Carried Away.

The girls truly believe God gave them the name Carried Away to inspire others to hope for the day when we will be carried away into an eternity spent with God. After a time of being known as the two sisters and a cousin, the three girls took on Carried Away as their group name, group hope, and a powerful message to tell the world.

Otto Price agreed to produce Carried Away's first full release in 2005, titled "Closer to You" that included the song that inspired their name. Their recording of the song "Carried Away" featured Jeff Deyo of Sonicflood. The album had two number one hit singles in Canada in 2005-2006 and also won two GMA Canada Covenant Awards for 'Pop Contemporary Album Of The Year' and 'Song Of The Year' in 2005.

Carried Away is currently busy on the road playing shows. Most recently they performed at the Women of Faith Conference in Calgary, Alberta for 8500 ladies. When they aren't performing, they're busy songwriting for their upcoming album, titled "I Want You", which is scheduled to be released in 2007.

Canadian trio Carried Away snagged four nominations September 12, 2007 for GMA Canada’s 29th Annual Covenant Awards held October 26th in Calgary, Alberta. The group was nominated for Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year ("I Want You"), Song of the Year ("Mystery"), Seasonal Song of the Year ("Soaring Trough the Sky") and Group of the Year, alongside downhere, High Valley, Relient K and Starfield.
