Carsie Blanton

Carsie Blanton


Inspired by artist-activists such as Nina Simone and Woody Guthrie, singer-songwriter Carsie Blanton’s catalog careens through American popular song, from folk and swing to pop-punk protest anthems. Blanton has released eight albums since 2005, the most recent being 2024’s "After the Revolution," produced by Grammy-winner Tyler Chester. Beyond her musical talents, she is also a passionate advocate for LGBTQ+ rights and environmental sustainability, using her platform to promote positive change. With her unique mix of humor, soul, and political wit, and fifteen-plus years on the road, Blanton has amassed a dedicated fan base and a small menagerie of viral hits

“My Good Friends” is the closing track of Blanton’s latest album. “I ain’t the only person who gets lonely / But when I’m feeling lonely it sure seems that way / And trying not to think about the things that I done wrong / Gets harder at the dimming of the day / But when the darkness descends / I call up my good friends / They come down to the riverbend / And crack me up until the light gets in.”
