John Carroll is a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist
who has explored music as a mode of expression for 25 years. A deep
appreciation for folk, country blues and music in general, coupled with
a strong and sustained desire to forge new ground both musically and
lyrically have been the legs that have propelled his musical journey.
He has recorded and put out two full length solo albums ” The True
Confessions of an Infamous Liar” in 2003 and “Lost Radio”in 2008. He is
known and appreciated for his ability to perform with enthusiasm, wit
and a musical integrity that inevitably serves to bring his audience to
more interesting places and ultimately higher ground than the one he
initially meets them on!
“John Carroll’s songwriting skill comes through in his music.He is
an assured performer who is memorable for his dry humour and relaxed
-Patrick Langston, The Ottawa Citizen
“For me John Carroll’s album epitomizes everything roots music
should be: Personal detailed songs that haven’t been written before.
He’s cliche- free, and the way he’s not afraid of looking the abyss in
the eye isn’t depressing, it’s invigorating”
-Canadian Songwriting great Geoff Berner
