“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. “— Mary Chapin Carpenter
Carrie Newcomer is a performer, recording artist, and educator, described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe and one who “asks all the right questions” by Rolling Stone. Her song “I Should’ve Known Better” appeared on Nickel Creek’s Grammy award-winning gold-certified album “This Side”, and she earned a regional Emmy for the PBS special “An Evening with Carrie Newcomer.” Recent appearances on PBS’s Religion and Ethics and the National Award Winning Krista Tippett’s On Being, have focused on her use of creative art form as a spiritual/mindfulness practice, her work in social/ environmental justice, interfaith dialogue, progressive spirituality and as a champion for a new political conversation.
For Newcomer, writing songs is not about telling her individual story; rather, it’s about the experience of being human. Her songs are “always pointing toward what we both recognize, to write about the place where my story meets yours.” Carrie Newcomer’s conversational, introspective songwriting celebrates and savors the ordinary, yet sacred, moments of our lives.Carrie lives in the woods of southern Indiana with her husband and two shaggy dogs.
“Carrie Newcomer – a great gift to humanity. Her music – a great gift to our souls.”— Jill Bolte Taylor (Author, My Stroke of Insight)
