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.

“She'd grown up the child of a singer in a band and began playing her mother's vintage Martin guitar ... Read more in Amazon's Carolyn Wonderland Store

I had the good fortune to discover Carolyn back in 1993 when she had just gotten out of high school. She was amazing then, and she has only grown as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Check out her website - [..]and her MySpace page. She's touring the US this summer, and if you're a blues fan, she's not to be missed. Enjoy the little gal from Texas with the GREAT BIG VOICE.

Take the best parts of Janis Joplin, Marcia Ball and Susan Tedeski, mix them together and you get CAROLYN WONDERLAND. Great album. Boy can she play the guitar.

You don't have to listen to too many samples to realize that Carolyn has exactly the right name - and all the right stuff, too. Thanks, Amazon. Finally your song samples do just what they are supposed to do! Can't wait to own this CD....Come to Chicago, Carolyn! Why should Texas have all the fun?!

Carolyn Wonderland is a new name to me. She's an oldskool blues-rocker with a muscular vocal style lying somewhere between Jonell Mosser and Janis Joplin. Carolyn plays lead guitar on many tracks, and boy can she play - she doesn't miss a lick! The supporting musicians are new to me as well - except drummer Jamie Oldaker and Cindy Cashdollar who plays dobro on 'The Farmer Song'. I'm assuming that some of the musicians are from her road band - their playing is tight, together, and very much on Carolyn's wavelength. The album was produced, recorded and mixed in Austin, Texas - which, more or less, says it all.

Just reading a little bit about the lady, she is sometimes referred to as a blues singer; I wouldn't describe the music on this album as 'blues', although it is very 'bluesy' at times. Much of the time, Carolyn rocks - and rocks hard; but there are a few songs of a more subdued nature. Most of the songs are originals written/co-written by Carolyn and/or the band members; there are 2 covers of songs originally performed by Rick Derringer/Johnny Winter and J J Cale, and 3 covers of songs written and performed by other Texas-based artists (Terri Hendrix and Bruce Robison). Some brief comments about my favourite tunes :

MISUNDERSTOOD (Carolyn Wonderland) - terrific opener with a backbeat guaranteed to get your foot tapping and your hips swaying, Carolyn plays lap steel - including a 1 minute solo.

I FOUND THE LIONS (Terri Hendrix/Lloyd Maines) - mid-tempo rocker with a funky horn/sax arrangement.

TROUBLE IN THE CITY (J J Cale) - a new lease of life for this song; it's another one which grooves on the backbeat, check out the rolling piano too.

5.0 out of 5 stars miss understood February 12, 2010
By beeze
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm really hot on female blues singers right now and this gal gets across. I have noticed that just because one album is great on a cd doesn't mean they all might be so select carfully. This is great Jolpin style music without mimicing. I was just strolling through alot of new to me female singers and had a lucky find. Julie Black and Grace Potter were also amoung the latest memorible performers I recently found to be very satisifing. Regards Breeze

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC album September 17, 2011
By alexwil
Format:MP3 Music
I've heard people compare Carolyn Wonderland to Bonnie Raitt. While, no doubt, some of their sound is very similar. In my opinion, Carolyn Wonderland's music has a certain spirit, vibrancy of character, and soul that makes it very special (this is not as a musicologist...nor even a well listened music enthusiast). Carolyn Wonderland is a refreshing reminder of real womanhood in a music industry that increasingly tends to breed cheerleaders out of Nashville singing pop-country (I will stop here and differ to the wisdom of Hank Williams III).

Her music is the kind of backroom bar solo-drinking, Marlboro Red-smoking, knock your teeth out, low-down, dirty, rollicking, unapologetic music you could only expect to come out of a state that's unofficial motto warns others not to mess with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Cow .... what a dynamic, talented artist! July 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I happened to see Carolyn Wonderland on Austin City Limits and was flat blown away by her singing, freakin' smokin' hot guitar playing, and the whole band presentation. This album is no disappointment .... she has honed her art of musical prowess, powerful singing, and a strong band sound. And don't just think she's a blues singer ... she's got a range of style .... highly recommend for anyone wanting to hear a rockin', bluesy female artist with alot of style along with powerful musical renditions ...

She seems better than other females that are currently playing the guitar and singing. I can't think of any still at this level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ms Carolyn Wonderland is an enigmatic rock and roll star!
I finally got to see her in person and her love of the rock & roll/ blues genre shows through in her passionate covers of such stars as Janis Joplin. A wonder to behold!
