Carsie Blanton - Stan Rogers Folk Festival - Canso, Nova Scotia, Canada

Carsie Blanton



Carsie Blantonis a songwriter with hooks,
chutzpah, and revolutionary optimism. “It is possible
to face the world as it is – rapidly heating, ruled by
grifters, ravaged by profitable wars – and still have
hope,” she says of her forthcoming release, After the
Revolution. “Not the narrow, grasping hope you might
hang on an election or a billionaire, but a patient,
zoomed-out hope.”

Blanton’s ninth full-length album draws from her
many influences. Tracks like My Good Friends evoke
her childhood in Appalachia, while Ain’t We Got Fun
showcases a musical roux earned from a long stint in
New Orleans. The title track, a hard-rocking protest
anthem shows that her commitment to the good
fight need not obscure her considerable acumen as a
writer and musician.

With her unique mix of humor, soul, and political wit, and fifteen-plus years on the
road, Blanton has amassed a dedicated fan base and a small menagerie of viral hits
(Rich People, Shit List, Fishin’ With You). Her forthcoming album After the Revolution,
produced by Grammy-winner Tyler Chester, is slated for release in March of 2024.
