About Ranell Carpenter

Born and raised in the small town of Placerville, California, 45 miles east of Sacramento, Ranell Carpenter grew up loving family, horseback riding, and competitive sports. She also wrote poetry and lyrics from a young age, but didn’t discover her love of singing until she was in her later teens. After the loss of her father in 2010, she decided to pursue a singing career and found herself as the lead vocalist for the Ice House Blues Band.

With Ranell’s smoldering vocals fronting a group of outstanding musicians, the band toured the Sierra foothills area for several years, exploring the blues genre. Along the way, Ranell developed a strong following that supported her as she ultimately went out on her own.

Today she is an in-demand singer and songwriter who works with some of the best local professional blues musicians. Her performances are described as “soulful” and “dazzling” as she pours her heart and soul into every show, sharing her unique version of blues-based rock, soul, and R&B.

From the Full Band Experience to Intimate Acoustic Setups

The full Ranell Carpenter Band is made up of five members, with fixtures Ranell Carpenter, guitar player Robert Foster, and keyboard player Gary Bennett. Bass guitar and drums are played by some of Sacramento’s most talented musicians, including Joe Lev, Ripley Howe, Larry Schiavone, Peter Phillis, and Jimmy Bagshaw.

At smaller venues, Ranell plays acoustic sets accompanied only by her good friend and guitar virtuoso Robert Foster. The blues and jazz sounds of this arrangement are silky smooth fan favorites.
