Carrie Elkin to Release THE PENNY COLLECTOR on March 102:23 AM
With a voice that’s somehow both gritty and pristine, Carrie Elkin has spent the last decade developing her presence into a force of nature.
Titled in honor of the late Richard Elkin (1942-2015), a lifelong penny collector, the album lives in a similar musical realm as Patty Griffin and Brandi Carlile, straddling the Americana/roots, folk and indie rock worlds where meaningful songs meet the fierce-yet-fragile voices of powerful women.
Written in a year that was bookended by the birth of Elkin’s first child and the process of caretaking her father through the dying process, "The Penny Collector" is a poet’s momentous stroll full circle around the human lifecycle in one single year.
Following her Red House Records release of Call It My Garden, Elkin was celebrated by Texas Music Magazine as one of their artists of the year.
With her latest work, Carrie Elkin once again delivers the powerhouse vocal performance that people have come to expect, with delicate waves of intimacy that build to astonishing crashes of intensity.
