Biography

Seattle, Washington, United States (1995 – 2003, 2010 – present)

Carissa’s Wierd is an indie rock band which formed in Seattle, Washington, United States in 1995.

Mat Brooke and Jenn Ghetto formed Carissa’s Wierd out of Seattle in 1995, and released three albums before their 2003 breakup. Their plaintive, melancholy, beautiful music won over many who were exposed to it. The band’s lineup changed throughout the band’s existence. Mainstays in the band included violinist Sarah Standard, drummer (and later bassist) Ben Bridwell, drummer Sera Cahoone, drummer Creighton Barrett, and keyboard/accordian player Jeff Hellis. Their final album, Songs About Leaving, was a modest success in the Northwest, topping many critics charts and leaving fans hungry for more. Sadly, the band decided to go their separate ways in September of 2003. Jenn is now performing under the name S and Brooke and Bridwell went on to create Band of Horses. Brooke has since moved on to become part of Grand Archives and Sera Cahoone has launched her solo career. As of April 2007, both Grand Archives and Sera Cahoone have been signed to Sub Pop Records. In March 2010, Hardly Art announced that it would release a compilation of Carissa’s Wierd material, with songs picked by Brooke and Ghetto, followed by reissues of the group’s first three full-length records. The band played a reunion show on July 9, 2010 to support the compilation.

    When I first started listening to this band I didn't listen to anything else other than Songs About Leaving because I was afraid I wouldn't like it as much, but now that album is probably the one I listen to the least lol.
