About Carolyn Striho:

While perhaps best known for fronting the Detroit Energy Asylum and for her work with punk priestess Patti Smith, Detroit musical icon Carolyn Striho continues to built momentum as a solo performer, gaining respect in the international music community as a songwriter, singer, poet, artist, and musician. She has toured the UK, Italy, Canada, and even Japan.

In the wake of performing at the 2005 London UK Meltdown Festival (curated by Smith), Striho has since accumulated over 30 nominations for Detroit Music Awards (winning several), and most notably received an honorable mention in Billboard Magazine’s “Songs of the Year” (2009) for the cabaret-style crowd favorite, “Enchante.” Carolyn Striho is a creative force whose deeply-felt lyrics, mesmerizing stage presence, and evocative style translate into unforgettable live sets. Fusing pop, rock, jazz, classical, folk, punk and even cabaret, and backed by a talented band, her music refuses to be categorized.
