Dunno how I bumped on this but I guess it was some how through http://tomboystyle.blogspot.de/.
Carnivore was born on the night of a full moon in the summer of the
year of the dragon. She is the seventh of twelve siblings. Her father
was a painter and her mother baked wedding cakes. Her favorite color is
turquoise. Her favorite food is purple Pez. In a past life she slept
beneath the stars in far away Western places and died in a gun fight
with Annie Oakley.
Following high school,
Springtime Carnivore joined a traveling circus company. She was a
talented and nimble acrobat but her career was cut short by a tragic
tightrope accident. “We had been traveling for days trying to maintain
our schedule and we were all sick and tired and lonesome,” she recently
wrote in a letter to her fans. “One night during a show in Twin Falls,
Idaho, my energy was all used up and I made a misstep on the tightrope.
Long story short, I fell three stories and broke my fibula.”
Although the tightrope incident killed Springtime’s big top dreams, it
opened the door to another dormant aspiration. “While my poor leg was
healing I discovered an old piano in the attic of my great great
grandma’s second’s cousin’s third husband’s house. I dusted it off, paid
a blind man to tune it by ear and I’ve been playing ever since. Inside
me were all these songs about all these things I’ve seen and all these
places I’ve been. Just came pouring out like tears."
of Springtime’s latent piano passions can be heard on this first
release from the young songstress. Brought to you by LebensStrasse.
Available all places cool discs are sold."
