Carly Dow
Carly Dow
Carly Dow’s music will leave you charmed and haunted. Her wildcrafted soul-folk
blends inspiration from wordsmiths Gillian Welch and Amelia Curran, with an edge reminiscent of Neko Case. Dow’s songwriting reflects a deep appreciation of beauty and darkness balanced throughout personal, physical and natural histories. The depth, space and stark allure of her home province of Manitoba seep into her music as main influences, which is apparent in the delivery of her striking, smoky vocals. Soft and sultry, pretty and gritty - this music has it all.

“…a folk powerhouse” (Winnipeg Folk Festival)
“her pipes are as rich and full-bodied as a fine red wine” (The Uptown)

Ingrained is Dow’s first solo studio recording and was co-produced herself along with Darwin Baker and Jesse Matas (Crooked Brothers) at Private Ear Recording in Winnipeg and the historical log-built Visitor’s Centre in Riding Mountain National Park.

Dow has performed locally and nationally as a solo act, a duo, or with a band - giving her a rich and adaptable musical style. She has performed with the Winnipeg Folk Festival’s Young Performers Program on multiple occasions, the National Artist Program at the 2011 Canada Games, and at various other renowned venues and festivals in Manitoba and throughout the rest of Canada.

Dow has co-produced and recorded 3 additional albums with several projects, including Lost in the Woods (Bog River, 2010), Hands in the Ground (Bog River, 2011), and her solo demo (2013).
