Please join us for an author visit from Detroit musician Carolyn Striho from 12:00pm to 1:00pm!
Wildly original, melodic, and passionate, Carolyn Striho’s music has been described as written “from the silver edge of midnight” (All-Music Guide, USA). Highly regarded as one of the city’s best singer/songwriters, Carolyn’s also an award-winning musician, performer, and poet. From her early days in Detroit to her current evocative music, Carolyn’s alluring vocal delivery with a rock and roll folk eclectic sound is hypnotizing. She was on the Grammy Awards First Ballot 2018 for Best Rock Album (“Afterthought”). Carolyn has received 11 Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Albums, Musicianship, Outstanding Songwriter and more.
Carolyn was also on the Grammy Awards First Ballot 2022 for Best Spoken Word Album for her book Detroit (Maiden Energy), which is a volume one of Carolyn’s lyrics and poetry reaching deep into a Detroit music lifetime. Carolyn’s poetry is included in Respect: The Poetry of Detroit Music from Michigan State Press (M.L. Liebler/Jim Daniels) and in Rock and Roll Anthology by Cervena Barva Press.
Carolyn’s toured and worked with poet and rock icon/singer Patti Smith in Michigan, through Toronto and in London, England. And she’s performed with Don Was, Was (Not Was) with her band Detroit Energy Asylum, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The Slits, The Ramones, Iggy Pop, The Isle of Wight, U.K. and in London, U.K. with Yoko Ono, Steve Earle, Tori Amos, Sinead O'Connor and much more. Carolyn brought her music to Italy, being invited three times to play there, and to Osaka, Japan, where she did a two-month residency with her band.
Carolyn is embarking on a tour with husband/guitarist Scott Dailey and their band, debuting new songs and a new album. She has also just released a new song “The Bridge” which was written and performed together with Erin Zindle of The Ragbirds. There are several retrospectives coming out soon as she is also featured in the national book, “Hit Girls: Women in Punk” out on Feral House this year. There is also a new Carolyn release with her former band Detroit Energy Asylum coming out this year. And stay tuned for more of Carolyn’s new music!
