Carolyn Mark
Carolyn Mark has been attracting some international notice as of late, through her work as one half of the Corn Sisters with Neko Case; aside from the bevy of covers that act tackles, Mark is the principle songwriter, and it's high time that a larger audience caught on to what an excellent songwriter she is. Hopefully by now, fans of Case and the Corn Sisters have gone back and checked out Mark's Party Girl disc, released earlier in 2000. It's a baker's dozen of songs that illustrate Mark's knack for conveying maddening heartbreak with a sense of humour rooted in classic country double entendres, not one-liners with a short life span. Live, she plays up the novelty factor to her advantage; she is easily one of the most entertaining performers in Canada, able to tackle any audience and win them over.
