Renee-Louise Carafice


“Imagine melding Liz Phair with Joanna Newsom, but the product being even more stunning than the sum of its parts,” wrote author Rachael King in 2008, on her blog The Sound of Butterflies. She was describing the debut album of Auckland-born artist Renee-Louise Carafice, which had recently been released.

“I see her in the same vein of musical genius as David Mitchell (The 3Ds) and Ed Cake (Bressa Creeting Cake), with songs that reach deep inside you in a way you just don’t quite understand; it’s like they’ve always been there inside you and only now someone is pointing them out. You didn’t realise they’d been missing from your life, but it’s as if someone has just told you that you need air to survive, or that the ocean exists.”
