CC Carter Bio
CC Carter is originally from Memphis, Tennessee. His first musical memories are listening to old Jimmy Rodgers and early Elvis. Delta Blues, Country, and Motown were the staples of his music loving family and the soundtrack to his formative and teenage years. Profoundly influenced by the songs of Bob Dylan, CC took up the guitar and began writing his own songs at age 15. Seventies Rock and Roll and then the Singer-Songwriter Greg Brown became significant influences. After many years as a back porch musician living and working at many different jobs in various towns and cities from Los Angeles to New Orleans, CC moved to the Sarasota area of southwest Florida and immersed himself in the local art scene, meeting painter and bassist Larry Rawlinson, guitarist and composer Sir MCP and drummer Lou Holiday, and forming the band Culture of Fear. Culture of Fear performed and recorded only original and mostly political protest rock music in various live venues around greater Tampa Bay. Inspired to even more creative political activism, CC released his first solo CD, "Kill Your Television", in January 2007, followed by "American Son" in 2009 and "This Pretty Life", in 2012.His newest release, "Dragonfly" 2015, has recently been posted to this site. Many of his singles receive airplay on independent radio stations. Contact CC Carter through cccartermusic@hotmail.com.
