"A Philadelphia treasure."

- Jonathan Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News

"In all truth, she blew me away... one of the best singer-songwriters in the business."

- Gene Shay, WXPN Philadelphia

"Clearly, solidly and inarguably a real-deal songwriter. Sharp as a tack, possessed of a light touch, funny, and winningly direct."

-Singer/songwriter Peter Mulvey

"She’s simply one of the last true originals on the music scene, crafting poetically lilting and insightful songs that sparkle on record, but positively glow live."

- Pete Thornell (http://hplmusic.wordpress.com/)

"Carsie Blanton is a rare talent as a modern songwriter. Her sly wit and urbane imagery reminds me of a folky, female Cole Porter. I'm really happy to know that classic songwriting is in good hands with Carsie Blanton." - Singer/Songwriter John Oates (of Hall & Oates)

Carsie is a young singer-songwriter who grew up in rural Virginia and landed in Philadelphia in fall of 2006. Since then, her soulful, playful, intelligent music has earned her national respect. In her brief time as a performing songwriter, Carsie has shared the stage with nationally hailed acts Amos Lee, Nellie McKay, John Oates and Leon Redbone, and frequented noteworthy venues from The Birchmere (Alexandria, VA) to the Hotel Café (Los Angeles, CA). In 2008, Carsie toured with Loudon Wainwright III, and with Blue Note recording artists The Wood Brothers.

In July of 2009, Carsie released her second album, Buoy, produced by pop/rock mogul Pete Donnelly. While Carsie’s songs tend to be personal and lyrically rich, this release strays from the folk tradition to bring out the soulfulness, passion, and pop sensibility in her work.
