… And they are my new obsession. I crave their music. Thankfully everyone else loves the music just as much, so no one has gotten sick of my repeated CD! Tempe, AZ-based Black Carl recently visited The Cellar Door on Friday, February 21st, and knocked everyone’s socks off.  Emma Pew’s lead vocals are sassy, saucy, and simply amazing- even though she was struggling through a cold. This woman has some serious pipes! The band has a great energy, and you can tell they make a great team- they put on an awesome show! Thankfully, we got video, hopefully we’ll get it up soon!

If you like soulful singing and gritty lyrics, this band will become a new favorite. I’ll be bringing them back in July hopefully, and would love to see Grand Ole Party on the bill- I’ll keep you updated.  In the meantime, fall in love with Black Carl.

Update: Here’s a video from that night. Sorry for the horrible quality, we’re still working on the best settings to work with youtube!
