“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
“… now the most reliable sideman in Washington, D.C., puts out another just mere months later.”
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.”
“…he headlines this session with talent and charm to spare.”
~Mike Joyce, The Washington Post
We've been very busy working on all sorts of new stuff with all sorts of folks. Check out the video page for fun vid performances.
The new recorded collection is coming along in a wonderfully sweet funky fashion.
If you haven't yet, please check out one of my favorite podcasts done daily by one of my favorite performers and people, Pete Dominick. The Stand Up! w Pete Dominick gang is also a wonderfully thoughtful gathering of folks that endeavors to learn and be inventive in all sorts of insightful ways. If you were a Patreon subscriber to that show, you too could be among the ever increasingly fun Happy Hour Zoom hangs every week, as well as among those gratified in knowing that they support fun, progressive change and nascent knowledge. That is to say, it's not MERELY profoundly entertaining, but er uh, profound in other ways, as well! I'd LOVE to see you there!
Various rocking versions of my song (You Gotta) Stand Up! kick off and end it every day. Check it out on Music Page.
Thanks for your interest and support, folks!
