Behold the latest album by infamous West Coast Chanteuse Carolyn Mark: The Queen of Vancouver Island. Recorded in 3 locations (Hollister, CA, Victoria and Vancouver, BC) in 5 sessions during the winter of 2011-12 with the tops in the field, one can't help thinking "this is the one!"

...songs dressed up with mournful strings, break-of-dawn trumpet, and hot-jazz brass. Augmented by a hugely talented supporting cast of friends and collaborators, she again proves herself one of the West Coast’s most consistently underrated treasures, alt-country or otherwise. - Georgia Straight

There's a rich, powerful quality to Mark's voice ...she can easily handle a wide range of emotions, be they tender, wrenching, defiant, or playful.  Her voice conveys the tone of her lyrics magnificently. - Snob's Music
