CARRIE ELKIN is one of those rare artists with a tidal wave singing voice, and a stage whisper writing voice that brings you to the edge of your seat, emotionally. Like Patty Griffin or Brandi Carlile, she straddles the Americana, Folk, and Indie Rock worlds, where meaningful songs meet the fierce-yet- fragile voices of powerful women. Like these other seminal artists, Elkin has the gift of projecting very personal intimate moments into transcendent universal experiences that move us all.
‘an earthy combination of strength and compassion . . . reminiscent of the winsome beauty created by a young Nanci Griffith’ – Austin Chronicle
‘Carrie is a fantastically warm singer…a master of conveying the message and emotions of her characters’ – Fish Records, UK
‘I have never seen a performer so in love with the act of singing. That’s the gospel truth, and from what I’ve subsequently learned I’m not the only one to believe or state that. Onstage Elkin was simply a force of nature…’ – Maverick Magazine
