A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mike Jurkovic

Don't ask me why but I took a chance with this one. I usually shy away from teenage singer/songwriters and all the pro-adult hype that always follow these things but surprise, surprise, surprise!

Ain't So Green,. Carsie Blanton's second CD, (Her first, Hush, came upon the world when she was all of 16) is a tuneful, playful, and thoroughly listenable confection no matter what age or degree of cynicism you happen to find yourself at.

Hear a poppy folksinger having fun as she blends blues, snazzy melodies, swing, folk, gypsy wordplay and a cool, clear voice and never take herself or her chosen profession too seriously. Favorite tracks include: Temporary Lapse, Everybody's All Alone, Willing To Fall, the title track, and Time.

  • Promise
  • Anything At All
  • Don't Wanna Know
  • Ain't So Green
  • Everybody's All Alone
