“Her lyrics are sexy, witty and sharp” ~ The Chicago Tribune
Carsie Blanton’s smoky vocals draws listener into her riveting tales of natural – and erotic – disaster. Brimming with catchy hooks, sensual vocals, and lyrics boasting a gift for rhyme and meter — much like early Paul Simon — Blanton’s melodic mandate for humor or playfulness, leaves audiences spellbound.“A spunky singer-songwriter with a sense of swing to match her sense of humor.” ~ The Boston Globe
Over the past dozen years, Blanton has been making music that personifies play. Her work has been called “impeccably catchy” by critic Robert Christgau, with musician John Oates admiring her songs’ “sly wit and urbane imagery” that remind him of Cole Porter. She’s toured across America and Europe sharing stages with Madeleine Peyroux, The Weepies and others. Though based in New Orleans since 2012, the self-described “proud socialist” has been on the road since her teens.
