JPR Live Session: Carsie Blanton
Blanton's new album Love & Rage brings an air of levity to the ridiculousness of the day-to-day.
After spending a few of her formative years in Eugene, Carsie Blanton bounced around a bit. Most recently, she's been spending time in New Jersey with her band and some close friends and family - a pandemic pod that allowed for good food, good conversation, and band rehearsal.
Blanton's new album Love & Rage continues to display her penchant for putting an entertaining stamp on the absurdities of life. Her songs are full of sass and attitude, and it's something she feels is a major part of her personal brand, having been inspired by the likes of Dolly Parton and Mae West.
