Carly Dow's wildcrafted soul-folk blends inspiration from wordsmith Gillian Welch with an edge reminiscent of Neko Case. Dow’s "dark and poignant writing" (Stylus) is at the forefront of her songs, rich in vivid imagery. The depth and space of her home province of Manitoba seep into her music as main influences, which is delivered with"an incomparable voice that is raw, alluring and unique"(VIES Mag). Ingrained, released in 2015 and recently in the UK, is praised for its "uniformly brilliant playing, striking vocals and smart songs" (Fatea, UK).
