Indie Folk Pop
Carsie Blanton is a singer/songwriter based in New Orleans. Her newest record, So Ferocious, is “a playful indie-pop record for smart, ferocious libertines”. Her albums range from folk and pop (Buoy, 2009) through Americana and rock (Idiot Heart, 2012; Rude Remarks, 2013), to classic jazz (Not Old, Not New, 2014). When asked about the genre of So Ferocious, Carsie told DIME Magazine, “ making music is like making love; if you only know one way to do it, you’re not very good at it.”
So Ferocious was released on August 2nd, along with three music videos, all of which explore the album’s themes of pleasure, ferocity, and female empowerment. Carsie will be touring to promote the record throughout the fall in the US and Europe. Carsie has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe since 2006, as a headliner and as support for Paul Simon, The Wood Brothers, The Weepies, Shawn Colvin and many more.
Her live performances, which include material from every album, have been praised for their wit, humor, and captivating charm. In addition to her four full-length albums and two EPs, Carsie has gained popularity for her blog (which tackles questions of love and sexuality) and music videos (including So Ferocious and Baby Can Dance).
