Carolyn Mark and the Room-Mates, Terrible Hostess

By Sarah Rudolph

“I guess that some days / Oh it pays / To get out of bed,” sings Carolyn Mark on “Fuzzy Slippers,” the first track on her new album Terrible Hostess. With a voice somewhere between Patsy Cline and Natalie Merchant, Mark delivers wry commentary on life, love, and house guests. Backing her up, and playing the role of the Room-Mates, are Mark’s real life room-mates Tolan McNeil (guitar) and Garth Johnson (drums). Together they produced a hip country-pop album full of sassy tunes and sultry ballads–all you need for any house party. Martinis are optional.
