Character Bio

Carrie Brownstein - Various photo
Carrie Brownstein is a writer, musician and actor. She was a member of the critically acclaimed rock band Sleater-Kinney (1995 - 2006), which during its heyday was heralded as America's Best Rock Band by Time Magazine. In Sleater-Kinney, Brownstein toured internationally and played countless venues and festivals, including Lollapalooza, Coachella and Madison Square Garden. The band performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and on IFC's The Henry Rollins Show. Brownstein was named one of the top female electric guitarists by Elle Magazine and Rolling Stone Magazine lists Sleater-Kinney's song "Dig Me Out" - featuring the overdriven riffs of Brownstein - as one of the 50 greatest guitar songs of all time. In 2006, Brownstein earned a spot on Rolling Stone's list of the "25 Most Underrated Guitarists of All-Time" as their highest-rated female guitarist of all-time.

Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Believer, Slate, and numerous book anthologies on music and culture. From 2008 until 2010, she wrote a music blog for National Public Radio called "Monitor Mix," which also features Brownstein's humorous videos. Her pieces for NPR Music earned her a place in 2009's Best Music Writing (De Capo Press). Brownstein is also a contributor to NPR's "All Songs Considered."

In 2010, Brownstein formed a new band with Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss called Wild Flag. The band signed to Merge Records and will release their first album in 2011.

Carrie Brownstein lives in Portland, Oregon where she is working on her first book of non-fiction called "The Sound Of Where You Are", which will be published by Ecco/Harper Collins.
