Bio And Musical Info

Carrie Elkin is a troubadour in the most classic fashion, Carrie Elkin has ridden a Gypsy breeze of serendipity for the last ten years, landing for a time in Cleveland, Athens, Taos, Steamboat Springs, Colorado Springs and Boston, finally coming to settle in Austin, TX in the summer of 2007.

It’s exactly this sort of openness to the people and places that pass through her life, and to the opportunities that might emerge in every new and particular circumstance, that grew to become the central theme of this new album . . . and the very process by which Elkin somehow managed to find herself in the midst of some of Austin’s finest musicians and producers, literally, within days of arriving in town.


While already making quite a buzz around the Austin scene with her highly spirited and spontaneous performances, Elkin spends the majority of her time on the road still, touring nationally and in the UK and Europe. Here are a few examples of the wonderful reviews Carrie has received:

  • I have never seen a performer so in love with the act of singing. That’s the gospel truth, and from what I’ve subsequently learned I’m not the only one to believe or state that. Onstage Elkin was simply a force of nature…Arthur Wood, Folkwax
  • Carrie Elkin’s fourth release resounds with a sense of warm, earthy poetry that combines a strong folk/soul framework, her own sweet-toned but characterful vocals and quietly offbeat writing that never seems wilfully eccentric.HC, Maverick Magazine
  • We,happily accept everything Elkin has to offer, especially the way she finds humanity in her heartworn heroes.Minor 7th
