"Liv Carrow is a guitarist, songwriter and folk song collector recently transplanted from New York's Hudson Valley to Davenport, Iowa. Her music explores the shadowy terrain of Appalachian melody and traditional balladry, crafting songs both strange and familiar that invoke American roots music, the British folk revival of the 60s, and the more contemporary wave of New England freak folk, with a sprinkling of 90s alt-indie earnestness. Liv Carrow‘s introspective songs draw from the rich history of the bardic template to weave poetic wordplay with captivating melodies, fingerstyle guitar playing and a clear, direct voice that can hush a chattering room. Currently based in Davenport, IA, Carrow has performed internationally and across the US. Her most recent album was released on Philadelphia label Single Girl/Married Girl. She has recently recorded a yet-unreleased EP at Dub Narcotic studio in Olympia, WA and released a recent session on Daytrotter. She is currently at work on her fourth album. "
