Carly Dow’s music will leave you charmed and haunted. Her wildcrafted soul-folk blends inspiration from wordsmiths Gillian Welch and Amelia Curran, with an edge reminiscent of Neko Case. Carly Dow’s songwriting reflects a deep appreciation of beauty and darkness balanced throughout personal, physical and natural histories. The depth, space and stark allure of her home province of Manitoba seep into her music as primary influences, which is emphasised by her striking, smoky vocals. Soft and sultry, pretty and gritty – Carly Dow’s music has it all.
Love, loss, sensuality and environment are themes carefully crafted throughout Ingrained, Carly Dow’s acclaimed debut full-length album, which she co-produced with Darwin Baker and Jesse Matas (Crooked Brothers).
Carly Dow has performed across Canada and is touring the UK for the first time in January 2017.
