CD Artwork for Carrie Elkin’s Call It My Garden which was released in 2011 with Red House Records. This packaging highlights the striking photos taken by Rodney Bursiel. It also features a digital booklet custom made to be compatible with iTunes.
With her Red House Records debut release, Carrie Elkin has emerged as one of the defining new voices in the world of Texas singer-songwriters, being celebrated by Texas Music Magazine as one of their artists of the year. She’s an artist full of contrast and contradiction. With a voice that’s somehow both gritty and pristine, the Austin Chronicle calls it “an earthy combination of strength and compassion . . . reminiscent of the winsome beauty created by a young Nanci Griffith” while Bob Harris of the BBC throws in comparisons to Patty Griffin and Iris DeMent, and calls her voice “spellbinding from the opening track.”
