From Jim Caligiuri, The Austin Chronicle:
2011 marked a breakthrough year for Carrie Elkin. Call It My Garden was a top pick at year's end among Americana and folk critics. Although the Austinite possesses a college degree in organic chemistry, Elkin's music is paramount, and she brings a gypsy soul to songs that are breezy and unpretentious. She's most recently been touring with partner Danny Schmidt, and they've been earning raves for shows spiritual and uninhibited.
