Darci Carlson - Outlaw Country Songstress
Straight Up Country. No Chaser.
And that's just how Seattle's Outlaw Country songstress Darci Carlson likes it. Rough-hewn and aggressive, but not tasteless or tacky. An up and coming country artist with an edge that punctuates like the pleasant after burn of a fine spirit.
"Totally unfair Darci Carlson—girls this hot aren’t supposed to be this talented, or be off into throwback country that only the lost souls and forgotten rejects of society still listen to. And none of this should be emanating from the Pacific Northwest. You know, because what the hell do they know about country music up there anyway? ...
Apparently, they know more than many of the cretins on Music Row."
Nominated in both 2015 and 2016 by honky tonk hero Dale Watson's Ameripolitan Music Awards for Outlaw Female of The Year, Darci is being hailed for her rebellion against the taste's of today's Country-err, should we say 'pop', and serving up hardcore twang with a surprisingly raspy lived-in voice and high energy performance. This isn't Punk Country, and this is no 'vanity act'. This is a no non-sense, foot stompin', throwback, true country affair. A night with Darci Carlson is one hell of a honky tonkin good time.
"We're not leaving Country Music behind, we're taking 'REAL' Country with us."
Darci has been compared to other female greats such as Tanya Tucker, Lucinda Williams, Stevie Nicks, and Patty Loveless. She has had the privilege of sharing the stage with acts such as Shooter Jennings, The Supersuckers, Micky and The Motorcars, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers, Bob Wayne and The Outlaw Carnies, Scott H. Biram, Wayne 'The Train' Hancock, and Dale Watson to name a few.
"It was good country music. The kind that makes you want to drink whiskey, and then drink some more whiskey. If Waylon had a daughter, she'd be it."

"The sultry-voiced Darci Carlson knows her way around an acoustic guitar and a classic country ballad, channeling a little Stevie Nicks and Courtney Love while she's at it."
