John Carroll Live at The Acoustic Grill
John Carroll’s successful 25 year career as a singer, songwriter and performer is deeply rooted in his ability to create mindful, pithy, and insightful songs from his observations of everyday life. He is a sure footed teller of yarns, and his tales of wit are woven seamlessly through song and stage banter, making him an enthralling live performer. His songs gain further depth by his skilled finger-style and slide guitar playing, lending an aching melody or creating gritty background for the images embedded in his lyrics.
To date, John has recorded three full length albums (True Confessions of an Infamous Liar – 2002, Lost Radio – 2008, Everybody Smokes in Hell -2012), each with critically acclaimed engineer, Dave Draves at Little Bullhorn Studio, (Kathleen Edwards, Jim Bryson, Camp Radio, HiLo Trons).
John’s first live solo album, recorded at renown venue The Acoustic Grill, in Picton, ON. John is the eighth seasoned artist to be recorded for the Acoustic Jams series, following the likes of Tom Wilson, Al Lerman and Brock Zeeman.
