Carletta Sue Kay
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 8:00pm - 8:35pm @ Beauty Bar (617 E. Seventh St. Austin, TX)
    Carletta Sue Kay are equal parts Marianne Faithful, Joanna Newsom and Emmylou Harris, coupled with the song writing styles of Stephin Merritt and Cole Porter. The music gravitates toward the sadder side of life, lamenting much, regretting more. CSK is named after singer-songwriter Randy Walker’s real-life cousin who served a prison sentence for domestic terrorism and threatening to blow-up her ex-boyfriend with a pipe bomb. This is an auspicious inspiration for a musical persona who, performing with an obvious five-o’clock shadow, sings heart-wrenching yet transformative songs of love, life, and relationships told from the perspective of a woman. Carletta’s live performances have so riveted audiences that she has already secured an international following—before releasing even a single record. The debut Carletta Sue Kay lp Incongruent will be out this year on Kitten Charmer. Singer Randy Walker, aka Carletta was recently honored to record with the Magnetic Fields for their forthcoming and 10th album Love at the Bottom of the Sea on Merge.

    "Lotte Lenya and Edith Piaf combined,
    with all of the tragedy but far more humor”
