New Orleans based singer, songwriter and provocative chanteuse Carsie Blanton has announced national tour dates in support of her upcoming album Buck Up due out February 15th.
Blanton has unveiled a new video for the song “Jacket” (from the upcoming album) via social media and you can view it HERE. In her words, “a silly, sensual, hyper-saturated celebration of a few of my favorite things (hot boys, humor, rollerskating and . . . fruit)”, this video captures her characteristic humor, razor-sharp wit and charm. Rolling Stone Country recently highlighted Carsie’s song “Buck Up” in a roundup of “10 Best Country, Americana Songs To Hear” calling it “a bright John Prine-worthy folk song about maintaining a bright disposition in dark times . . . a singalong for the dispirited and downcast, urging everyone within earshot to persevere”.

The inspiration behind Buck Up hit Carsie following the 2016 elections when as she puts it “America broke my heart, and then some scoundrel re-broke it.” The new album, which features Oliver Wood on the title track, is a collection of narratives flecked with grief but told through Carsie’s infectious swagger, humor, buoyed by her characteristic silvery vocals.
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.
Carsie Blanton will be hitting the road on February 25th and will be opening for The Wood Brothers on a string of West Coast dates in support of her new album. A full list of upcoming 2018 tour dates and additional information can be found at https://www.carsieblanton.com/shows.
