Now - Live at Home + Instrumentals
At the tail end of 2020, Ronnie released a live home-studio video performance of her wintery blue tune "The Falling Season." The video and performance were completely self-produced.
With the help of Mad Gambit, Ronnie filmed a live-from-her-living-room performance of a brand new original song called “City of Persistence” for the She’s Speaking project in March of 2021.
Currently, Ronnie Carrier is writing new material and working on instrumental focus-music intended to accompany tasks like reading, working, and studying. Samples of the music can be seen in nature video collaborations with Mad Gambit and this cute puppy video!
2020 - “Are You Listening? Live & More” and "Spider"single + video
In early 2020, after collecting many recordings of memorable live performances during the years following the release of “Lost in the Eclectic,” Ronnie released her live album “Are You Listening? Live and More” which includes solo, trio, and full band renditions of Ronnie Carrier favorites as well as an exclusive studio recording of her song “Earworm.”
While navigating the unusual circumstances of the pandemic, Ronnie was able to perform at a handful of safely distanced outdoor venues during the year 2020. Grateful for the opportunity to offer reprieve in the form of live music, Ronnie has continued to hone in on live performances to create a musical space fit for all audiences.
Toward the end of 2020, Ronnie released her single “Spider” along with an eerie music video filmed and produced by Mad Gambit Media (Portland, OR). The song was her first release that was entirely self produced, and was featured on Portland Radio Project's Video Sessions.
2018 - “Tiny Song” Tiny Desk Contest Entry + CC: Media Performance
With some of her favorite fellow musicians (and her favorite hedgehog Hector), Ronnie transformed the Powell's Books warehouse into a stage for a Tiny Desk Contest entry. The song may not have won the contest, but the video sure won the hearts of music, book, and hedgehog fans alike.
That same year, she also performed on the Local Roots Capital Community Media showcase with a full band. Many song from that performance wound up on her live album called Are You Listening? Live & More (2020).
2017 - “Lost in the Eclectic” and "Off With My Head" lyric Video
In 2015, Ronnie continued Northward to Portland, Oregon. Upon arrival, she was immediately swept up in the city's vibrant music scene. While playing gigs around the Portland area, Ronnie focused on completing her first full length album, a concept album called “Lost in the Eclectic'' (2017).
Alongside the release of her album, she put out a lyric video for her song "Off With My Head" with graphic produced by Aesthetic Shadows Media.
Following its release, Ronnie began making appearances at festivals, television shows, and toured up and down the West Coast. She also hosted the Driftin' Inn showcase at McMenamin's White Eagle from 2017 – 2020 (this show has been postponed till further notice due to the Covid-19 pandemic).
2015 - “The Story Goes . . .”
Ronnie Carrier's solo career evolved when she relocated to San Francisco in 2009. She spent her days studying English Literature and working at the campus bookstore at SF State and her nights performing in the city and throughout the Bay Area. After graduation, she spent several summers teaching music recording to kids at Steve & Kate’s Camp. She also continued her bookselling career at the historic Green Apple Books. Among many other contributions, she curated a local music listening station and hosted open mics and music events in the Fiction and Music Annex of Green Apple.
Her debut EP “The Story Goes . . .” was recorded at Coyote Hearing Studies (Oakland, CA) in 2015. The stripped down, acoustic 3-song EP gave listeners a glimpse at Ronnie’s compelling musical capabilities.
