(2-LP set) Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer and educator. A friendly, un-dogmatic but at the same time deep spirituality is at the core of her artistry. She has been described as a "prairie mystic" by the Boston Globe and a person who "asks all the right questions" by Rolling Stone, and "She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, that is sooo true ..." (The Dallas Morning News). All of this alone would be impressive, but it is Carrie's deep and warm voice which ultimately dissolves any resistance and pulls you in, never to let you go. There is a reason why she is often compared to iconic singers such as Karen Carpenter or Mary Chapin Carpenter: "a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate" (The Austin Statesman). With its warm, catchy tunes and mellow, autumnal glow, "The Slender Thread", Newcomer's debut album on Stockfisch, can easily become a habit ... Pressed On High Quality 180 gram 45rpm Double LP! Made in Germany. Mastering by Hans-Jorg Maucksch at Pauler Acoustics.
