Carsie Blanton is a songwriter with hooks, chutzpah, and revolutionary optimism. Inspired by artists including Nina Simone and John Prine, her music is a jaunt through American popular song, from sultry jazz to pop-punk protest anthems.
Her live shows seek to delight and galvanize, with her Handsome Band serving up juicy three-part harmonies and melodic basslines to drive home each well-crafted refrain. A seasoned performer, she explores the political and the burlesque while bringing her audience together in humor, hope, and camaraderie.
Carsie’s latest album, Lovin’ Is Easy, is an intimately-recorded collection of songs from throughout her catalog, produced by Tyler Chester (Madison Cunningham, Andrew Bird) and featuring fan-favorites such as Fishin with You and Smoke Alarm.
