Carly Dow - 2013 - Demo

Carly Dow is a folk singer-songwriter from Winninpeg, Manitoba, Canada. She writes acoustic folk songs, filling out the background with lap steel guitar, upright bass, drums and mandolin. Think along the lines of Po' Girl and Julie Doiron and you won't be far off. She's performed twice at the Winnipeg Folk Festival.

All of these songs have a country tinge to them, but Too Much To Go Back is the most focused on that, the lap steel is a nice touch, All Sleep Tonight has a rock solid rhythm that lets Carly's voice stretch out, and the mandolin allows Soil To Dust to dance around like a nimble country song while Carly does her thing beautifully. If you like folk music Carly Dow is one to watch.
