Carsie Blanton has been called many things- a provocateuse, a hedonist, a revolutionary. And though her art reveals itself in many forms, it’s her songwriting that draws people in. Currently making her home in New Orleans, Carsie Blanton has always been a little unorthodox. Raised on a commune near Luray, VA, Carsie was unschooled until she left home for Oregon at the age of sixteen when she began songwriting. Her lifelong love of jazz, Motown, and classic songwriting led to a strict code for what makes a good song: hooks, humor, sex, and soul. With an eclectic range of influences and inspiration that includes Fats Waller, Nina Simone, Dolly Parton, Chance The Rapper and Courtney Barnett, Carsie has created a genre-defying sound that matches her singular style.
