Carrie is heading to the NORTHEAST in just a couple of weeks time with her touring partner, Luke Jacobs. After spending the summer at home in Austin working on new songs, a new recording, and catching up on some much needed r&r, the duo is now ready to get back in the van and head to a city near you!!! The tour starts Oct. 2nd in the DC area at The Birchmere, and will include tour stops in NYC, Philly, Northampton, and more...
It has been an exciting couple of weeks around here in Austin, TX. I have switched musical gears from performer to producer and am currently working on a debut album for my exceedingly talented touring partner, Luke Jacobs. We recorded the basic tracks this past week at Ohm Recording Facility here in Austin with drummer, Brannen Temple and bassist, Kyle Kegerreis - both of whom are not only dear friends, but DAZZLING musicians. Now we've got some harmony vocals and fiddle to add by yours truly, as well as a few finishing touches by some special guests to be named a little later... Album to be released in early 2015!
A big thank you to Sarah Wilson for the impromptu photo session in between takes:
About three months ago a package arrived in the mail containing a beat up old 35mm camera. It was the type of device that youngsters under the age of 25 have only seen (ironically enough) in photographs, or perhaps found abandoned and residing on a shelf at a Goodwill. The task was simple: Capture your perception of Texas on a roll of film and send the whole lot back to the folks at the Twelve Project...
So I did. Hayes Carll did the same along with ten other musicians. It was fun y'all, and now twelve of those warm and fuzzy film prints (one per artist) will temporarily hang on the Grand Opera House lobby wall in Galveston. The prints will be auctioned off in an effort benefiting Galveston area, arts-loving youth. Cool!
You can read more about the Twelve Project here.
You can get tickets to the September 6th Hayes Carll & Carrie concert here.
Carrie and Luke are excited to be performing in Fish Creek, Wisconsin at the Door Community Center. Where is Fish Creek you ask? Hold your right hand palm up and pretend that it is the state of Wisconsin. Fish Creek, located in Door County, is the peninsula that is your thumb jutting into Lake Michigan. No excuses folks:) We'll see you there cherries and cheese curds in hand!
