Black Deer Live & Brighthelmstone Productions presents: Carson McHone @ The Louisiana Bristol

Carson McHone live at The Louisiana, Bristol. Sunday, 1st September 2024

With a new album coming out on the well respected Loose/ Merge Records. Black Deer Live and Brighthelmstone are delighted to bring you one of the hottest tipped emerging international Americana troubadours around. An act that can command a bar room as well as large Music Halls. 

Carson McHone is a songwriter from Austin, Texas, now residing in Southern Ontario.  McHone’s 2018 internationally released Carousel (LOOSE MUSIC / NINE MILE RECORDS), produced by Mike McCarthy, was a reimagining of songs from her formative years coming of age playing in dive bars.  It established her as a shrewd artist who raises unconventional questions with language equally at home in a poem or a short story. In 2019, during a hectic tour schedule, the songs of Still Life were written, and the following year McHone teamed up with Canadian musician and producer, Daniel Romano, to record the album while sequestered at a home studio in the fall of 2020.

Still Life was released on MERGE RECORDS in February 2022 with McHone touring the US, Canada, Europe, and the UK in support of the album, as well as joining, and performing with, Daniel Romano’s band, The Outfit. In September 2022 McHone released Camera Varda Variations (MERGE RECORDS), a digital EP featuring two songs from Still Life re-recorded at the Outfit’s new studio, Camera Varda, with the group as her band, akin to the collaboration/live show of the two acts on tour.

McHone has recorded and toured three albums as a member of the Outfit, Cobra Poems (2022), La Luna (2023), and Too Hot To Sleep (2024), all released on YOU’VE CHANGED RECORDS.  McHone’s upcoming EP, ODES, is a collection of carefully curated covers recorded at Camera Varda with the Outfit, plus special guest Shannon McGrath, and will be released July 19th, 2024 on MERGE RECORDS.

Show starts at 7:30pm.
