Carrie Akre, pure goodness

I discovered Carrie Akre when she fronted for the band Goodness in the 90s. Goodness is still what I turn on and turn up when I want to rock out. Carrie has a new album out (Last the Evening) and I was fortunate enough to catch her release party at the Tractor Tavern last night. It's soulful, it rocks, it's chock-full of songs that if I close my eyes, I can see being used as a soundtrack for a Drew Barrymore rom-com montage (and I mean that in the best way). Check out a couple of the tracks here. Let me know what you think.

I don't know what is wrong with my computer today but it's gone wonky on some things, I wasn't able to listen...oh well...

You have a wonderful day!

I loved the Carrie Akre concert at the Tractor Tavern. She barely seems to work at singing - her melodic voice just melts out of her. Amazing!
