Bio

Anjie Carpenter is an American singer, song-writer and musician with over forty self-penned songs across a musical span of three decades of writing and performing. Called the "Marlene Dietrich" of Nashville, she is best known for her soaring, angelic vocals and complex and compelling melodies telling authentic relatable stories of life, love and growing.

"Anjie's unique combination of wisdom and innocence creates a wonderful sense of discovery and purpose. Using her natural strengths as a teacher and nurturer, she writes and sings about life's truth and her experiences." Joe Kuhlman, Owner, The Evening Muse, Charlotte, NC

"Anjie Carpenter is a talented singer-songwriter with a smooth and warm voice. She touches the audience with the emotion she brings to her songs." John Tosco, Executive Director, Tosco Music Party, Charlotte, NC

"I ardently follow the creation and release of songs by Anjie Carpenter. Her work often has a message in it that hints of an organic spirituality she has found as her own life unfolds. It's not in your face...it's subtle. It's more about noticing and celebrating magic moments in our everyday that are easy to miss if we don't open ourselves up to noticing them." Dianne Porter, Owner of Jammalong, Canberra, Australia

"Anjie Carpenter has taken the wisdom from a successful musical career with ties to Nashville and transformed herself into a wonderfully self-empowered artist unafraid to follow the quiet, still voice that comes from the Great Spirit.  She’s equally adept at delivering a compelling vocal, accompanying her world-class singing on piano, and writing songs that have great, catchy melodies and clever lyrics with a focus on uplifting the spirit of the listener and employing tasteful and unexpected chord changes along the way to keep it fresh.  Over the last few months it’s been a real pleasure to help Anjie explore audio and video productions of her songs.  To meet her on the creative level has really pushed me to grow as a musician and producer in ways that I feel align me more closely with listening to and creating from the heart, and I feel like that is a hallmark of where her music is coming from, which is an important light in the world."
