No stranger to awards, Carolyn has several from the

Carolyn, her band and friends were recently featured on PBS's Austin City Limits with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings.Her 2015 Live CD, LIVE TEXAS TRIO is available everywhere. Her 2011 Bismeaux release, "Peace Meal" (recorded in Austin at Bismeaux and Woodstock, NY at Levon Helm's Studio) has been in the top ten iTunes Blues Chart, Top Twenty Americana Playlist and has found folks talking about Carolyn's music from House of Blues Radio's Elwood's BluesMobile to Don Imus, from Guitar Player Magazine to the Huffington Post. Carolyn is proud to announce her band's partnership with www.WhyHunger.orgwhile on tour (and at home shows!) the band donates 10% of sales to this amazing organization. Please DO check them out! "Peace Meal" has been critically lauded and is the follow up to the 2008 CD, "Miss Understood" (produced by Asleep at the Wheel's Ray Benson) which has been on the charts and in rotation since it's release and has been featured on many "Best of" lists. She, Bobby Perkins, Kevin Lance, and Shelley Cox have toured most of the States, and Europe, and Japan ... perpetually on the road ... only landed in jail once (knock on wood) for peacefully protesting the war.
