Carrie Newcomer with Chuck E. Costa
Carrie Newcomer is one of contemporary folks leading performing songwriters.
Her career has spanned nearly 3 decades, beginning in the early 80s as part of the folk group Stone Soup before she branched out on her own in 1988 and steadily earning attention and respect. 2008 was an exceptional year for Newcomer, as she earned FolkWax Magazine awards for Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for her latest release The Geography of Light.
Newcomer sings about serious subjects with clarity and elegance, and a healthy measure of good humor and self-awareness, with a voice the Austin Statesman has called "as rich as Godiva chocolate." Her music resonates with Appalachian and classical influences, and is punctuated with adept guitar work and powerful but intimate vocals.
