ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Carolyn Currie’s music has been described as "haunting," her "luminous voice" carrying listeners to a place of reflection and emotional intensity. 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” and Femme Musique writes, “Be prepared to experience insight, reflection, humor and beauty . . . her music is utterly spell-binding.” Carolyn has shared the stage with greats like Jonathan Edwards, Tom Rush, Cheryl Wheeler, Dan Bern and Ellis Paul, and has wowed audiences throughout the United States playing festivals including the Pacific Northwest's Bumbershoot Festival, Colorado's Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, New York's Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas (to name a few). All three of Carolyn’s albums have won numerous songwriting awards and her latest CD, Kiss of Ghosts, was chosen by Performing Songwriter Magazine as one of the top independent releases of 2005.

Kiss of Ghosts – Reviews

“I stumbled on Carolyn Currie's music and she has become one of my all time favorite artists. Her lyrics are haunting, personal and real as is her music.” Kiss of Ghosts Customer Review

“I think Carolyn Currie is one of the best "unknown" singers around. You almost certainly won't find her music in the "big box" or chain music stores. Though I'm not particularly qualified to be a music critic, I have been a big fan of folk, ballad and Celtic music for decades. Ms Currie's voice is uniquely beautiful-- rich and sensual, yet also a perfect match for the sad/haunting songs that predominate her work (and I can also strongly recommend her earlier CDs: "No Heroes" and "Standing Stones"). She writes her own music and the lyrics are particularly poetic and often very moving. Aside from the the great "3 Lady J's" of folk music (i.e. Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Joni Mitchell), Carolyn Currie is my favorite female singer.” Kiss of Ghosts Customer Review

“Currie has a sure voice that steadily relates to each and every person it touches with an exceptional confidence that tattles away tales that we’ve all experienced. Her songs, while fragile, have a sort of underlying fierce determination that demand to be heard and refract the light tones perfectly. Utterly outstanding.” J-Sin Smother.net

“I own a new age shop and get dozens of CD demos. Many are very good, but only once in a blue moon do I get one that just knocks my socks off, Kiss of Ghosts did just this. The CD is truly mesmerizing. Carolyn’s voice is just wonderful, sweet but not fragile, full of emotion. The imagery she paints with her lyrics transports me . . . I have run the whole gamut of emotion listening to this CD, empowered, vengeful, reminiscent, and charmed. She is a masterful writer.” Cindy, owner of New Millennium

“Carolyn Currie (is) an incredible songwriter with a unique voice that sets her apart from her contemporaries. Carolyn's third album "Kiss of Ghosts", is soon to be released...in our opinion, Carolyn is simply a stunning artist.”

“Be prepared to experience insight, reflection, humor and beauty. Currie’s distinctive voice weaves through your thoughts, binding itself permanently to the fabric of your brain. Her music has a cool, layered sound and is utterly spell–binding. Just try concentrating on something else, I dare you. It’s quite impossible to not give your full attention to Currie, her enchanting voice, music and exceptional lyrics simply will not allow it.” Femme Musique
