Conversational, introspective songwriting that celebrates and savors the ordinary, yet sacred, moments of our lives.

Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer, and educator. She has been described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe and, “asks all the right questions,” by Rolling Stone, “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate.” by The Austin Statesman, and, "She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true.'” by The Dallas Morning News. Recent appearances on PBS's Religion and Ethics and the National Award Winning Krista Tippett's On Being, have focused on her use of creative art-form as a spiritual/mindfulness practice, her work in social/ environmental justice, interfaith dialogue, progressive spirituality and as a champion for a new political conversation.

"I love Carrie Newcomer. She writes and sings about what is most personal to her and in doing so she speaks to the wider world. Her song ‘Geodes' will make you catch your breath with its wisdom and beauty.” - Mary Chapin Carpenter
