Texas' Carolyn Wonderland has the goods. A triple threat with her diverse songwriting, soulful vocals, and guitar goddess status - all featured on over twenty CDs, six of which are her releases - she has a pedigree in this business that's hard to match. A bit of a renegade, she likes to incorporate elements of Blues, Country, Swing, Zydeco, Surf, Gospel, Soul, and some nights, maybe even a Cumbia into the musical mix. Recent years have seen her stretching out musically working some expert whistling and scat singing into her shows. In addition to her trusty guitar "Patty", Carolyn has been regularly playing her trumpet, and even occasionally the accordion, mandolin, or keys.
Carolyn Wonderland has toured with acts like Buddy Guy and Johnny Winter… sat in
with String Cheese Incident, Robert Earl Keen, and Los Lobos ;co-written songs with Cindy Cashdollar, Candye Kane, Sarah Brown and Guy Forsyth.
"When she blisters the guitar and cocks her head fetchingly to sing her songs like "I'm Innocent," she stands in the good company of Sue Foley, Debbie Davies, and Bonnie Raitt. But when she whistles, as she does with disarming ease on another of her compositions "I'm the Man," or picks up the trumpet, she's one of a kind."
