A Video Mashup of Carbon Leaf @ Varsity Theater in Minneapolis MN
Carbon Leaf dubs their sound"Ether-Electrified Porch Music." This Richmond, VA acoustic electric-mandolin rock band is cultivating a grass-roots audience on the college and club scene with a raucous mix of Celtic, groove, roots and pop music.
From backyard barbeque days to shows up the East Coast, this independent, Virginia band is gaining fans from its home state and beyond with a stew of vivid lyrical imagery, strong vocals and harmonies, ambitious acoustic and electric guitar styles, solid-groove bass lines on both the electric and double bass, colorfully percussive drums, mandolin, tin whistle and harmonica.
Carbon Leaf's appeal is the diversity with which they approach their music. The band takes strides to explore - and combine - different styles of music and sounds; fusing groove, jazz, traditional bluegrass and Irish music, roots rock, pop and progressive rock. Influence by artists like Phish, Primus, R.E.M., Bill Monroe, Dave Matthews Band, Neil Young, Morphine and the Pogues.
Carbon Leaf's live shows are as spirited as their songs. The band's music takes on a whole new dimension live, with spontaneity being the mother of re-invention. Running the gamut from evocative and sublime, to upbeat and carefree.
With successful word-of-mouth campaigning and a play schedule averaging 14 shows a month, Carbon Leaf is forging an ever-growing fan base throughout their home state of Virginia and beyond. Formed in college four years ago, Carbon Leaf is rapidly becoming a prominent talent in the Virginia Music Scene. LISTEN UP!
