My friend Carter arrived last night from Nashville, and we're getting ready to go into the studio to finish up my most recent project, American Songs vol. 2. It's an absolute luxury to have Carter on the project...his effortless skills on guitar and soaring, melancholy-tinged vocals add so much texture to these traditional songs. I can't wait for you to hear it!
In the meantime, if you'd like to check out Carter's impressive solo debut album, Dare to Be Small, it's available on Amazon and iTunes. I'm partial to the hauntingly pretty songs Delicate and Fall.
You can also listen to a streaming version of songs from the album (including Fall, plus some bonus songs and some songs from Saddlesong, Carter's 2002 collaboration with his brother), sign up for his mailing list, view pictures, watch videos, read lyrics, and all that cool jazz on his website: www.carterlittle.net.
In the press, Carter has been compared to Wilco, Elliot Smith, Damien Rice, Michael Stipe, Roy Orbison, and my very favorite: "John Mayer without the icky factor" (that brilliant line is from Better Propaganda).
