Grammy award winning musician, composer, arranger, singer, producer and songwriter

“Jon Carroll is a one man band, a poet, a songwriter, a singer of every kind of song and above all, a musician’s musician…and I can also attest to his being a not-to-be-missed performer.”  

Mary Chapin Carpenter

“[His album "Love Returns" is]…a vibrant reminder of what Carroll does best, whether it's conjuring vintage R&B/soul sounds, or composing evocative ballad(s) which manage to bring to mind both novelist Annie Proulx and John Prine, or coming up with a country ditty as innocently engaging as On the Front Porch.” 
 The Washington Post 

“…he headlines this session with talent and charm to spare.”   
 The Washington Post 

“…the most reliable sideman in Washington, D.C., puts out another [album called 'Live Returns'] just mere months later.”
