Award-winning Texas folk/country singer, Carrie Elkin, is set to entertain an intimate gathering of music lovers on Friday, Nov. 30, at Juniper Trails Bed and Breakfast (www.junipertrails.ca) in Williams Lake.

With her Red House Records debut release, Call It My Garden, Carrie Elkin (www.carrieelkin.com) has emerged as one of the defining new voices in the world of Texas singer/songwriters, being celebrated by Penguin Eggs as their Criticsʼ Favourite Discovery of 2011.

Penguin Eggs isn’t the only Canadian institution to recently discover this wispy Texan, as 2011 has seen her explode from the ranks of the unknowns to being a headline artist in major festivals all across Canada, says her biography.

She’s an artist full of contrast and contradiction, with a voice that’s somehow both gritty and pristine.

The Austin Chronicle calls it “an earthy combination of strength and compassion . . .” The contrast is reflected in her writing, as well, which is at once devastatingly intimate and embracingly universal.

It’s this ability to make a greater connection from the minutia of life that makes Elkin’s songwriting so compelling.

The voice, the stories, the images, the grace and infectious enthusiasm – it’s a complete package. But it’s the power of her live performances that really have been creating an incredible buzz around this young artist.

Maverick Magazine said: “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.”
