The soulful wisdom of singer-songwriter Carrie Newcomer, dubbed a "prairie mystic" by the Boston Globe, offers a balm for this anxious and exhausted age of pandemic and political upheaval. Her new CD and companion book of poems, Until Now (Available Light, September 10, 2021) explores the process of unraveling and reweaving the threads of our lives, and the possibility of transformation after crisis. "We have all lived through a time of great unraveling, " Newcomer says. "Yet, with great disruption comes a possibility for change. We can't just be healed; we must be transformed." In her songs and poems, Newcomer tells the universal human story of loss, resiliency, spiritual connection, and hope with the grace, compassion, and humor that characterizes her work. She turns our eyes and ears to the growing edges of our lives, and to the liminal spaces-"betwixt and between" times-urging us to "notice what went unnoticed. And then redeeming those bits and pieces by making something new, " as she writes in the poem Liminality. She will premiere her newest album with an intimate, in-studio performance on August 29th on Mandolin, a music-streaming platform.
