ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of the best singer-songwriters in the business".
-WXPN’s Gene Shay

Carsie Blanton is a rare talent as a modern songwriter.
Her sly wit and urbane imagery reminds me of a female Cole Porter. Classic songwriting is in good hands with Carsie Blanton." - Singer/Songwriter John Oates (of Hall & Oates)

"Sharp as a tack, possessed of a light touch, funny, and winningly direct." - Singer/songwriter Peter Mulvey

Carsie is a young singer-songwriter who grew up in rural Virginia and landed in Philadelphia in fall of 2006. Since then, her soulful, playful, intelligent music has earned her national respect.

In her brief time as a performing songwriter, Carsie has shared the stage with nationally hailed acts Amos Lee, Nellie McKay, John Oates and Leon Redbone, and frequented noteworthy venues from The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA) to the Hotel Café (Los Angeles, CA). In 2008, Carsie toured with Loudon Wainwright III, and with with Blue Note recording artists The Wood Brothers.

In July of 2009, Carsie released her second album, Buoy, produced by pop/rock mogul Pete Donnelly. While Carsie’s songs tend to be personal and lyrically rich, this release strays from the folk tradition to bring out the soulfulness, passion, and pop sensibility in her work.

Once in a While....
Once in a while something special happens in the music business and changes the way you listen to everything else.
Its no exaggeration to say that that's what happened when I heard Carsie Blanton. She is a poet. Carsie writes songs that
tell stories through the use of intelligent lyrics, sly wit and poignant sensibilities. I have seen her perform to audiences of all ages and hold them spellbound as she weaves her tales. An added bonus on this CD is that she has gathered some outstanding musicians to accompany her, and it's obvious from their joyful playing that they had a blast peforming together. This CD is an absolute delight. I've just bought another one, because I gave the first two copies away to friends!

one of the best CDs ever....
...yes, EVER, I tell you!

Every single one of the songs on this album is catchy, clever, thoughtful and fun. I can't wait to hear what Carsie Blanton comes up with next. I can tell - it will be good.
