100 Word Bio:

Once described as Sarah McLachlan meets Nirvana, Portland-based folk-rock songwriter Ronnie Carrier’s musical world is like a haunted house with friendly ghosts. Each room is a gothic, fantastical observation on life's anxieties and addictions, risks and rewards, loves and loses. Infusing haunting vocals and Lewis-Carroll-like lyrics, Ronnie Carrier’s musical narratives are as catchy as they are clever.

 

With music drawing influences from pop to choral to blues to country and beyond, she’s released two albums, an EP, and several singles. She’s toured festivals and venues, taught music to kids, hosted monthly music showcases, appeared on television and radio, and is currently a producer for Local Roots Music NW.

"hauntingly beautiful . . . enchanting"- Portland Radio Project

"foot stompin’ . . . filled with literary depths"- Spinning Platters

"Ronnie Carrier & The Day Terrors would cure your night terrors in a heartbeat. Full of juicy soulful lyrics that are rooted in indie pop but backed with jazzy drums and bass and a smooth but soulful lead guitar behind the rhythms of Carrier’s melodies."
