GENRE: FOLK ROCK

 

 

Hi, I’m Carsie. I make songs, records, videos, blog posts, and mischief.

I live in New Orleans, and I love all kinds of music: Ray Charles to Joni Mitchell; The Beatles to Erykah Badu; not to mention Nick Lowe, Tom Waits, Dolly Parton and Billie Holiday. I love songs, but I hate genre. I think making music is like making love: if you only know one way to do it, you must not be very good at it.

I grew up in Luray, Virginia, and left home at sixteen. I’ve toured all over the US, Europe and Australia, with many of my songwriting heroes (Paul Simon, The Wood Brothers, Madeleine Peyroux, Anais Mitchell). I write great songs, and I cover great songs that I love. I find four-leaf clovers. I fall in love a lot. I’ve been skydiving, but I’ve never been to high school.

I believe that music is more important than money. That’s why all of my music is available to stream, download or purchase for any price you want. That’s also why I release my music under a Creative Commons License. That said, I need money to live (and to keep creating!), so if you love my music, please consider becoming a patron.
