Critique




"I've recently been presented
with your wonderful album,
In Search of Simplicity,
by our program manager
and it has really
impressed me very, very much.
I've always paid a lot of my attention
to voices
sounding so particularly heavenly
and I'm extremely glad
to have discovered
another musical paradise
in your world of
vocal interpretations."

Letter from

"Carrie Armitage is a Canadian singer-songwriter with a proclivity for
ecological-consciousness and peace activism.
Carrie’s recent release,
The Spirit of The Times,
is a fairly candid take on the global awareness
and preservation for the Earth’s vanishing resources.
Carrie’s awareness of Earth’s impending plight
is a musical message of electronica
with varying shades of jazz, trip-hop, house, and lounge.
The ambient beat of electronica and her vocals
carry the song’s highs and lows from the darkest depths of Earth’s inner core
through the vast darkness of
intergalactic space."

 
Review by Matthew Forss
Ariel Publicity
Armitage smoothly transverses musical genres,
her work combines elements of ambient, progressive rock, jazz, classical and pop.
 

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.

" ...a stylistically consistent vision, a pop grandeur that veers into theatrical territory."

About Carrie Armitage



Born to musical parents, her father a jazz pianist, her mother a singer/dancer,
Armitage was immersed in both the business and the creative side of the arts from a very young age. 

She has worked across genres - as a pianist, keyboardist, vocalist and producer with multiple acts both on tour and in studio.

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. 

You can now find her music on all streaming platforms with CDs available through bandcamp and cdbaby.
