2013 Feb Carrie Rodriguez at Steve's Guitars (1 of 1)

Carrie Rodriguez came to Steve’s Guitars, in Carbondale CO, on February 17, 2013 to a packed house of loyal fans, that many had traveled long distances to her play her fiddler and sing her beautiful songs.  I attended at the recommendation of Steve, as this was my first time hearing Carrie, and was not disappointed. She combined her heartfelt lyrics with her superb playing to thrill the room. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to hear Carrie LIVE and to have been able to photograph of this beautiful artist.

Carrie is joined on stage by guitarist Luke Jacobs, which she has co-written songs.  They have a wonderful chemistry on stage that enhances the experience.

Rodriguez, who came to attention a decade ago performing with singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, has established an impressive roster of touring, recording, and co-writing affiliations—with Lucinda Williams, Rickie Lee Jones, John Prine, Mary Gauthier, Alejandro Escovedo, guitarist Bill Frisell, and others.

Carrie’s father, David Rodriguez, was an accomplished songwriter, and took her on tour with him in Europe when she was a teen, song craft, like improvising on fiddle and singing, didn’t come automatically to Carrie. After sitting in on a sound check with her dad’s old Houston pal Lyle Lovett, she detoured from a degree as a classical violinist at Oberlin Conservatory and set herself on course to become a fiddler at the Berklee College of Music. There, her teacher, Matt Glaser, and her fellow students, including roommate Casey Driessen, helped her “find my groove and let go of that wall I had put up as a classical player.”

With the release of Give Me All You Got, Rodriguez is ready to say the same thing about herself: “As a singer-songwriter, I feel like I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing. It’s a lifelong learning curve, and I hope I always stay as excited about it as I am now.”
