"Carrie Armitage is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a proclivity for
ecological-consciousness and peace activism.
Carrie’s recent release,

In Search of Simplicity
Her debut CD, In Search of Simplicity,
was well received by university and community radio - play listed at stations internationally.
The buzz In Search of Simplicity experienced was largely due to enthusiastic radio programmers.
Several women's oriented programs have featured the CD in Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
Armitage’s 2010 release The Legend of the Free is an intelligently written and creatively arranged collection of tunes in the singer songwriter genre while destroying any preconceived notions of what a singer songwriter should be. Her use of ambient beats, a la This Mortal Coil, combined with extended vocal techniques and spoken word help lift this album above the fold and place it into a category all its own.
Carrie Armitage is also partner in
