A Texas treasure with a dollop of Janis, a slice of Stevie Ray and the wit of a poet
A recent Grammy Award nominee in the Best Rock Performance Single category, Carolyn Wonderland has the goods. She’s a triple threat of diverse songwriting, soulful vocals and guitar goddess status. A bit of a renegade, Carolyn likes to incorporate elements of blues, country, swing, zydeco, surf, gospel, soul, and on some nights, maybe even a cumbia into the musical mix. In addition to her trusty guitar, Patty, Carolyn regularly plays trumpet and occasionally the accordion, mandolin or keys. Her songs have been featured on NBC’s Homicide and Fox’s Time of Your Life. She has toured with acts like Buddy Guy and Johnny Winter, sat in with String Cheese Incident, Robert Earl Keen and Los Lobos, and has jammed with mentors and friends like Bob Dylan, Eddy Shaver and Ray Benson. She’s co-written songs with Ruthie Foster, Cindy Cashdollar, Candye Kane and Guy Forsyth. Carolyn is also the guitarist in the all-girl, southern rock band Sis DeVille, and a founding member of the Austin Volunteer Orchestra.
