Carsie is a young singer-songwriter who grew up in rural Virginia, logged time in Eugene, San Francisco and Philadelphia, and landed in New Orleans in 2013. Carsie’s songwriting is known for its wit, insight, and melodic sensibility. Her live performances are lauded for humor, wit, and the clarity of her voice. Since 2007, Carsie has toured extensively throughout the U.S. as a headliner and as support tour for Paul Simon, Shawn Colvin, Bruce Hornsby, Joan Osborne, The Weepies, Loudon Wainwright III, John Oates, The Wood Brothers and others.

In 2012, she released her third studio album, Idiot Heart, produced by Oliver Wood of the Wood Brothers.  The Washington Post says “Idiot Heart is funny. It’s tender. It’s cute. It’s edgy. It’s fresh. It’s folksy without crossing into the realm of kitsch. Each track bursts with its own pithy, poignant commentary on that ficklest of organs for which the album is named.” – Jess Righthand
