Carrie Newcomer
Before & After

[Rounder; March 15]

With a rack of studio albums, a live release and a retrospective already under her belt, Carrie Newcomer ought to be more familiar to us than she is. Perhaps Before & After, her tenth solo effort, will be the album to change that. She describes it as “unguarded and naked”, claiming to have “peeled back another musical and emotional layer” by “endeavoring to be fearlessly uncluttered and subtle”. Mary Chapin Carpenter duets on the title track, with a second duet, ‘Do No Harm’, featuring Darwin Song Project participator Krista Detor.
