Carson McHone, a songwriter from Austin, Texas, “writes songs like her life depends on it” (Ray Wylie Hubbard), and brings an intelligence to alt-country that is both immediate and lyrical.
McHone has been working on a new album in Nashville with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Heartless Bastards, Patty Griffin) and will be performing at the 2017 Americana Music Festival and the 2017 Austin City Limits Music Festival.
"Carson McHone is a young country singer who expresses herself through the form while avoiding the formalism that etiolates the work of many country purists. In other words, she controls an aching break into her head voice that marks her a stone country vocalist, and her 2015 album 'Goodluck Man' brims with tunes that evoke the spirit of early- 70's country without wandering off into retro. McHone has been working on a new album in Nashville with Spoon producer Mike McCarthy - Let's hope it's commercial as hell"
