St. Paul, MN — Red House Records is pleased to announce the signing of Austin, TX singer-songwriter Carrie Elkin. Called “spellbinding” by BBC Radio, her insightful songwriting, soulful vocals and lively performances have won her fans across North America, Europe and the UK. Her 2007 self-released album, The Jeopardy of Circumstance, received rave reviews and landed her official showcases at South By Southwest (SXSW) and the International Folk Alliance.
Hot on the heels of her recent success, comes Carrie’s new album Call It My Garden. Produced by fellow Austin artists Danny Schmidt and Colin Brooks (The Band of Heathens), the release is scheduled to come out in early February 2011 and is sure to be a hit with folk and Americana fans.
Carrie keeps a rigorous tour schedule, performing solo and with such notable acts as Jesse Winchester and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band as well as Red House artists Greg Brown, John Gorka, Storyhill and Danny Schmidt.
