An Angel at My Shoulder

1994 - Philo

An Angel at My Shoulder was Carrie’s first Rounder Records release. Longtime fans and new listeners will find that An Angel At My Shoulder is vintage Carrie Newcomer — charming, friendly and utterly comforting. An album was unabashedly sincere and heartfelt, unexpected in the cynical '90s, alternately gentle and gutsy, and sweet songs that are leavened by moments of real-world wisdom and wit. Acoustic backing with occasional light electric touches.
