Margaret Moser of the Austin Chronicle credits the songwriting of the six original tracks on McHone's 2013 EP with a "curve-ball edge…songs such as 'Pale Blues' resonating with the confidence of a veteran"


Under the X in Texas host, Ted Branson of KOOP Radio, assures, "Carson McHone is a breath of fresh air in a town full of Texas songwriters who all try for the sound she was born with and presents confidently in an easy, natural way."  


In 2014, Carson sang on "Chick Singer Badass Rockin" on Ray Wylie Hubbard’s new CD. Of the delivery, he said, “… I wanted a woman Keith Richards sloppy rock thing and she went there like she was him before the blood transfusion…plus she writes songs like her life depends on it…”

Perfect storm of songwriter and vocalist

Don’t miss McHone, the beauty with a bankroll in her boot, who writes with depth and sings with gritty confidence.

Especially welcome was guest vocalist Carson McHone, whose turn on ‘Dearly Departed’ evoked memories of Emmylou Harris dueling with Bob Dylan in the latter’s ‘Desire’ era
