Carrie Newcomer Releases a New CD
Monday, February 22, 2010
Carrie Newcomer has released a new CD, Before and After (Rounder Records). Known for her reflective, poignant lyrics, Newcomer has focused much of this project on change and transformation. She blends her rich alto voice with poetic lyricism on this skillfully arranged and performed collection of folk roots tracks, with Appalachian and classical influences. The album features Mary Chapin Carpenter on the title track, Before and After. The combination of two of acoustic music's most talented female vocalists is subtle and beautiful.
