About Carrie Newcomer

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. Her new album A Great Wild Mercy (Oct. 13, 2023) explores integration and living in process as we enter a post-pandemic era. The songs on this album address our personal and community longing for connection in this time marked by fear and rage. Carrie writes that she thinks of her songs as “three and a half minutes of empathy, a welcoming space where the news of the world and the news of the heart have equally important roles to play.”

The album expresses a deep desire to experience something life-giving and generative emerging out of relationships across differences, a hope to reenter connection in the post-pandemic world with kindness. “Everything has brought us here,” Newcomer says. “The good, the glorious, the hard as stone, the seriously stupid things that have happened. It has all mattered and helped us become the persons we are today. I’ve never written an album because I have an answer, I write only because I have questions. I write myself into my next becoming.”

Carrie is known for her low and resonant voice “..as rich as Godiva Chocolate” according to The Austin Statesman, for her musical depth and the progressive spiritual content of her songs, poetry and workshops, and for her continued work in justice, spiritual and interfaith communities, and health and hunger organizations. She lives in the wooded hills of South-Central Indiana with her husband and two shaggy rescue dogs.
