Combining the lyrical sensibility of a singer-songwriter with the musical appeal of a sophisticated rock band to create music that can be enjoyed on a number of levels.
Carbon Leaf mates their words to music of immense beauty and, dare I say, joy.
Blending rock, folk, Celtic, bluegrass, and Americana traditions into a high-energy style the group calls “ether-electrified porch music,” Carbon Leaf’s poetic songs are brought to life with acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion, and rich vocal harmonies.
The Virginia-based group has three decades’ worth of experience and independence built into its DNA. The band’s success is rooted in its values: brotherhood, commitment, empathy, integrity, and self-reliance. Carbon Leaf’s newest album, Gathering Vol. 2: The Hunting Ground, is a reflection on and a return to the basics, with acoustic arrangements serving as the focal point of its storytelling.
