Multi-talented song writer, author, and activist
Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter and performing artist but she's also a social and environmental justice advocate, interested in spirituality and helping move our political conversation in a more productive direction.

Newcomer has toured with Alison Krauss, had a song recorded by Nickel Creek and has also written and produced a theater production, "Betty's Diner: The Musical." Newcomer was named one of the "50 most influential folk musicians in the past 50 years" by Chicago's WFMT, while Boston's WBEZ listed her as one of the most influential folk artists in the last 25 years. She is a poet, an author, and a calming, ethical voice in a sea of chaos.

"To my mind - a writer's mind - Carrie Newcomer is much more than a musician. She's a poet, storyteller, snake-charmer, good neighbor, friend and lover, minister of the wide-eyed gospel of hope and grace. All this, and she comes with a voice that declares, "Sit down here a minute and listen." Who could ask for more?" - Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

"Carrie Newcomer - a great gift to humanity. Her music - a great gift to our souls." - Jill Bolte Taylor, Author, My Stroke of Insight

"I love Carrie Newcomer. She writes and sings about what is most personal to her and in doing so she speaks to the wider world. Her song 'Geodes' will make you catch your breath with its wisdom and beauty." - Mary Chapin Carpenter

"She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true.'" - The Dallas Morning News
