Carole Wise is a Maine-based singer songwriter. She is the consummate performer. Her guitar/mandolin playing is both intricate and straight forward and her lyrics are nuanced, lyrical and both personal and universal.
We the listeners are not likely to have songs written about or for us, yet, in listening to Carole’s songs - we come close. Every song offers us a chance to connect to something: a feeling, a thought, a fear, a hope. She evokes something familiar - something we have felt, thought or worried about - as though she knew us.
Carole’s music is not afraid. She sings about love, loss, society’s issues, finding self, but always with a silver lining - a belief that every experience is an opportunity to be or do better. Her music is born of her heart, starting as a feeling - often while communing with nature - a personal reaction to a moment in time, or the release of deep rooted feelings. The clarity of meaning in her writing then transcends the personal to a universal connection.
As listeners, we can recognize pieces of our own life’s journey. Like hearing that song on the radio that magically seems to speak to what we are feeling at just that moment, listening to Carole’s CD, or most wonderfully in person, is a chance meeting that brings us closer to ourselves.
