Carsie Blanton

Over the past 20 years, PETER MULVEY has pursued a restless, eclectic path as a writer and musician – immersing himself in Tin PanAlley jazz, modern acoustic, poetry, narrative, and Americana stylings. Relentlessly touring as a headliner, he has also shared the stage with luminaries such as Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson, Ani diFranco, Indigo Girls, and Greg Brown, and has attracted an audience that stretches from Anchorage to Amsterdam.

In every aspect of his career, Mulvey draws on an extremely broad swath of influence; he is always reading, listening, and eager to hear new poetry, modern minimalist composers, old-time fiddle tunes, Argentinean trip-hop, or top-shelf bar bands. Said The Irish Times: “Peter Mulvey is consistently the most original and dynamic of the US singer-songwriters to tour these shores. A phenomenal performer with huge energy, a quick fire, quirky take on life, and an extraordinary guitar style. A joy to see.”

Silver Ladder, Mulvey's first full-length album of original songs in five years, is an auditory shot in the arm from the veteran touring songwriter. Produced by the indomitable Chuck Prophet, it is a lean, muscular collection of tightly constructed songs, leavening Mulvey’s tendency toward ruminative and yearning acoustic songs with a dose of sharp-witted, punchy rock and roll.


Singer-songwriter Carsie Blanton has always been a little unorthodox. She grew up listening to Leonard Cohen and John Prine; by the time she was 11 she was digging up old jazz records. When America was captivated by Britney and Christina, the soulful singer was poring through the Great American Songbook as interpreted by Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.

Not even 30, she's already self-released three full-length records, two EPs, and shot six videos — all independently; not to mention touring with legendary songwriters like Paul Simon and John Oates. For her latest record, the Kickstarter-funded Not Old, Not New, she’s recorded an album of jazz classics from the pre-bebop era. Not Old, Not New was recorded in Carsie's adopted hometown of New Orleans, and features esteemed New Orleans players like Ellis Marsalis, David Torkanowsky (Irma Thomas), and Neal Caine (Harry Connick Jr.).
