Described as 'haunting' her 'luminous voice' carries listeners to a place of reflection and emotional intensity. Femme Musique writes, 'Be prepared to experience insight, reflection, humor and beauty. Carolyn's distinctive voice weaves through your thoughts, binding itself permanently to the fabric of your brain. Her music . . . is utterly spell-binding.' 'Enya-like, she can transport you to other lands, or bring you home to a place within your heart,' writes the Victory Review. The Tacoma Reporter notes, 'Even more impressive than Currie's obvious talent as a performer is her genius as a songwriter and lyricist. You will swear, by the end of the night, that a least one of her poetic melodies was written specifically about you.' Dirty Linen emphasizes all this with a simple, 'Look out Dar Williams and Catie Curtis . . .' Carolyn's two CDs, No Heroes and Standing Stones have garnered multiple songwriting awards and a national following for the folk rock singer-songwriter. Her third album, Kiss of Ghosts, will be released in 2003.
