Carly Dow‘s wildcrafted soul-folk will leave you charmed and haunted. Her songwriting reflects a deep appreciation of beauty and darkness balanced throughout personal, physical and natural histories. The depth, space and stark allure of her home province of Manitoba seep into her music as main influences, which is most apparent in the delivery of her striking, smoky vocals. She has toured locally and nationally as a solo, duo or full band act. Ingrained (2015) is her first solo album after many years of recording and co-producing with other projects. She is hailed as a “folk powerhouse” (Winnipeg Folk Festival) for her work with co-producer and partner, Jesse Matas.
