Debut Album Coming Soon

Carolyn's long-awaited, debut full-length album, Grenadine & Kerosene, is almost ready for release! Grenadine & Kerosene is the realization of a lifelong dream to record a full-length album of original songs. Produced by John McVey at Cinder Sound Studio in Longmont, Colorado, the album features a full band of seasoned musicians, including guitarist Michael O’Connor, drummer Christian Teele, bassists Chris Engleman and Kramer Kelling, and keyboardist Eric Moon. Singer-songwriters Megan Burtt, Edie Carey, Jen Hitt, Jen Morrison, and McVey contributed beautifully arranged backing vocals. This collection of songs spans a wide variety of sounds and influences, ranging from folk-rock and Americana to tender love songs and quiet, introspective folk tunes that offer the listener a window into intimate moments. The album is, as its title suggests, a mixture of refined sweetness and raw emotion, packing a punch that is powerful and satisfying.
