Bio

Straight up Country - No Chaser.

 

Seattle’s Outlaw Country Queen Darci Carlson is a high energy, no non-sense Singer Songwriter from Seattle WA with a decade long presence in the PNW music scene. This DIY firecracker of a front woman has performed around the US and beyond not only as a country artist, but as a lead guitar player for her all-girl punk rock band The Dolly Rottens, as well as a co-fronting Bassist and Singer for ‘Weird Western Cowboy Band’ Brent Amaker Deathsquad. Darci is also known for her involvement as a model and actress with the ZZTop crew from 2012-2015 on the "Gang of Outlaws Tour" as the sassy pistol packin’ vixen "The Girl".

"If you ain't got haters - you ain't doin it right." - Darci Carlson

Darci delivers a true country performance of foot stompin' originals and classic country favorites drenched in hardcore twang. This isn’t Punk Country or a vanity act. This is a no non-sense, throwback, true country affair. 

 

A natural story teller, her songs highlight tales of her truth, youth, and lawless adventures, no matter how ‘wild, reckless & crazy’. Her smokey sweet lived-in voice reminiscent of the after taste of a shot of whiskey, has been compared to other leading ladies in the Country and Rock Genres such as Bonnie Raitt, Tammy Wynette, Patty Loveless, Miranda Lambert, and Courtney Love.

Recognized for her devotion to Roots-Americana and renouncing the “pop country” sound, she is a 3 time nominee and 2017 Outlaw Female of The Year with Honky Tonk Hero Dale Watson's Ameripolitan Music Awards out of Austin Texas and Memphis Tennessee. 

 

"If there was ever a personification of the ladies canonized in Hank Williams Jr.’s self-penned tune “Outlaw Women” from Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound, it would be Darci Carlson.”

From smokey neon lit dive bars and honky tonks to starlit outdoor festival nights, Darci has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with National acts such as Shooter Jennings, Midland,

Clint Black, Lonestar, The Steelwoods, Paul Cauthen, Ward Davis,

The Supersuckers, Sunny Sweeny, Whiskey Meyers, Randy Rogers Band, Wayne 'The Train' Hankcock, Mickey and The Motorcars, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers, Shane Smith and The Saints, and Nikki Lane to name a few.
