With a troubadour spirit, UK singer-songwriter Carrie Tree has spent much of her life traveling the world with her music, stirring and softening hearts along the way.
Carrie has an uncanny ability to reach into the traditions of the lands she visits, she touches a place deep inside the hearts of her listeners wherever she performs. She has been a known name in the UK’s grassroots scene for many years and has toured in countless retreats, festivals and concerts across the world. Carrie has played regularly at UK festivals such as Cambridge Folk Festival, Secret Garden and Glastonbury Festival, where she performed on the 2000+ capacity Williams Green stage. She has collaborated live and in the studio with the likes of Damien Rice, Carly Simon, Fink, Albert Mazibuko (Ladysmith Black Mambazo), Rumer, Mirabai Ceiba, Martha Tilston and Andy Barlow of Lamb.
Carrie’s third studio album ‘The Canoe’ was completed in Iceland and released in 2019. The listener is drawn into her world of mystical storytelling and melody through the production and arrangements of Markus Sieber (known for his ambient acoustic recordings as Aukai/Mirabai Ceiba).
THE CANOE – ALBUM LINKS:
“..a remarkable album.…quality writing. Recommended “
‘An oasis of calm in a world of chaos’
As a whole the album is a reminder for us to reconnect with ourselves, the human race and nature.
‘A gift to be savoured like a summer breeze’
‘Underneath the placid exterior are musical depths one doesn’t always associate with folk music.. Allow the music to wash over you and you’ll be swept away by the essential beauty’
For folks sake
‘As a whole the album is a reminder for us to reconnect with ourselves, the human race and nature’
‘Although it’s easy to place her music directly in the folk camp, her nomadic heart, absorbing lyrical imagery and deftly arrangements allow her to cross genres as easily as a canoe rides the waves.’
‘There’s a beauty within this album that bewitches and entices. The songs are beautifully scored, and actually command your attention. Rather than just being about the singer and her songs they are delivered and presented in a way that suggests magic is at work here.’
‘Very Vulnerable voice yet its able to carry a strong message… An early Marion faithful’
