"Carolyn Currie is one of the hottest performers in the Seattle music scene and is considered one of the best songwriters in the country," says the Tacoma Reporter. She has delighted audiences at Bumbershoot and Folklife, California's High Sierra Music Festival and Napa Valley Folk Festival, Colorado's Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival. Described as "haunting" her "luminous voice" carries listeners to a place of reflection and emotional intensity. Femme Musique writes,
"Be prepared to experience insight, reflection, humor and beauty. Carolyn's distinctive voice weaves through your thoughts, binding itself permanently to the fabric of your brain. Her music . . . is utterly spell-binding." "Enya-like, she can transport you to other lands, or bring you home to a place within your heart," writes the Victory Review. The Tacoma Reporter notes, "Even more impressive than Currie's obvious talent as a performer is her genius as a songwriter and lyricist. You will swear, by the end of the night, that a least one of her poetic melodies was written specifically about you." Dirty Linen emphasizes all this with a simple, "Look out Dar Williams and Catie Curtis . . ." Carolyn's two CDs, No Heroes and Standing Stones have garnered multiple songwriting awards and a national following for the folk rock singer-songwriter. Her third album, Kiss of Ghosts, will be released in 2003.
