Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton is based in Philly, grew up in Virginia, started her first band while living in Oregon, and based her latest album on her experiences from frequent visits in New Orleans, the city that stole her affection. Currently, touring all over the US, and today she stopped by for Live Music Week to share some acoustic jams from Idiot Heart, her richly influenced and witty third release.

In studio, she performed three tracks including “Chicken,” which she says is one of the songs she wrote about her friends’ romances while her own love life was feeling non-eventful (Awesome first line: “Loving you is like kissing a chicken”). Her combination of classic pop, folk, rock, and blues give her an old-school uniqueness, while her lyricism and flair are candid and refreshing. Also, rumor has it she can do the Lindy Hop.

  1. Saw Carise with Paul Simon in Richmond,VA. She was not in the advertising for the show, but what a pleasant surprise. She blew the crowd away with her songs, wonderful voice, clever lyrics and her engaging and witty stage presence. There was a very long line buying her CDs during the intermission and after the concert. Idiot Heart is a fabulous album, a must have for any music fan.
