CARSIE BLANTON is a songwriter with hooks, chutzpah, and revolutionary optimism. Inspired by artist-activists including Nina Simone and Woody Guthrie, her catalogue careens through American popular song from folk and swing to pop-punk protest anthems.
With her unique mix of humour, soul, and political wit, and fifteen-plus years on the road, Blanton has amassed a dedicated fan base and a small menagerie of viral hits, with probably her best known being 2020’s tear-jerking tribute to John Prine, Fishin’ with You.
Her forthcoming album After the Revolution, produced by Grammy-winner Tyler Chester, is slated for release in March of 2024.
“Strikes a balance between the seduction of jazz and the outspokenness of pop punk.” – KUTZ 98.9 Radio
