Carly Dow


Genre: Wildcrafted Soul-Folk
(clawhammer banjo, guitar, vocals)
Location: Manitoba, Canada


"9/10 - Dow is a talent. There is nothing, not a chord or note that you won't really really love." (Americana UK)

Carly Dow's wildcrafted soul-folk blends dark and poignant writing with an "incomparable voice that is raw, alluring and unique" (Vies Mag). Weaving image-rich lyrics with strong songwriting on clawhammer banjo or guitar, Dow creates music that is magnetic and multi-layered, evoking comparisons to the likes of Gillian Welch and Abigail Washburn.

The depth and space of her home province of Manitoba seep into her songs, and much like her own stage presence, Dow’s music is quietly captivating, confident, and illuminating. Flirting the line between pretty and gritty, this music has it all.

Dow has performed extensively throughout Canada at a variety of venues and festivals including Winnipeg Folk Festival, Hillside Festival and many more. She has also received international acclaim in Europe and the UK.

Ingrained, released in May 2015, is "a living, breathing album with sweeping arrangements..." (Stylus).  Love, loss, sensuality and environment are themes carefully crafted throughout the recordings, making for a smart album that is both timeless and relevant. Ingrained is Dow’s debut solo studio recording and joined the National Top 10 Folk/Roots/Blues charts for several weeks upon its release.

Dow is working on her sophomore full length album to be released in Fall of 2018.
