News: New Recordings and livestream shows!
“A musical force equipped with the soulful vocals of Janis and the guitar slinging skills of Stevie Ray, Carolyn Wonderland reaches into the depths of the Texas blues tradition with the wit of a poet. She hits the stage with unmatched presence, a true legend in her time.” -Margaret Moser
We are missing the road! Music is the salve for our times. Here's some livestream shows that I hope you'll consider:

You can find Carolyn playing guitar in John Mayall’s band on tour since 2018, and on his 2019 Forty Below Records release, “Nobody Told Me.” Look for a new John Mayall release in the nearest future! John, Greg Rzab, Jay Davenport, and Carolyn just wrapped up with Eric Corne in Robby Krieger’s studio in LA this past December.
Speaking of new recordings… Carolyn, Kevin Lance, and Bobby Perkins just finished tracking the next Carolyn Wonderland release in their hometown of Austin, TX at Stuart Sullivan’s Wire Recording with Dave Alvin producing! “Holy whatnot, he just said yes!” is rumored to be Carolyn’s first utterance after Dave texted he would, indeed come down and create and capture some joyously musical lightning in a bottle. We were super lucky to have Dave, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Red Young, Cindy Cashdollar, Marcia Ball, Shelley King, and Jan Flemming all lend their extreme talents in the studio and we cannot wait to share it with y’all! Look for that next spring. Fingers crossed, it will be accompanied by lots of tour dates!
