Carter Vail is an artist who’s music is at once deeply intriguing and nostalgic. His songs, bundled in bright synths, distorted guitars and a “we’ll do it live” production style, are both energetic and intensely lyrically focused, bringing to mind acts like The National, The Cure & Local Natives.
Inspired by a musical household in Connecticut, Carter developed a deep love for sound, leading him to study Audio Engineering, and move to Nashville, TN. While producing acts like Sara Keden, Sabel & Parker, Carter has consistently been honing his own music. After releasing several singles, Carter now plans on releasing his debut full length album in 2020.
