Award-winning Texas guitar slinger, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Carolyn Wonderland has been performing professionally since the age of 15. Her music is a bold mix of timeless original songs and reinventions of some of her favorites, ranging from blistering electric blues to deep, heartfelt ballads to cosmic country to soulful Tex-Mex. Every song is fueled by Wonderland’s forceful yet melodic Texas-flavored guitar work and her full-throated, heart-on-her-sleeve vocals. She’s recorded eleven albums, including her October 2021 debut on Alligator Records, Tempting Fate, produced by the famed Dave Alvin. Wonderland, who spent the last three years as a member of blues legend John Mayall’s Blues Breakers, has joined the Alligator Records family as the first female guitar hero in the label’s storied 50-year history. Her spine-chilling, soul-deep singing matches her guitar prowess note for note. And she has a knack for writing songs that sound like instant classics. Her songs are inspired by her story, overflowing with countless and colorful once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
