Biography

Since moving to Nashville, Tennessee in 1994 the Carter Brothers have grown musically and personally. They are and have been making quite a name for themselves not only with their music but personally as well. They are very approachable, kind and friendly folks and are very comfortable being around people who are the same. No put-ons here…these guys are the real deal.

Dan and Tim Carter were born and raised into a rich musical heritage in North Carolina. They are blood relatives of the infamous ‘Carter Family’ musical dynasty. Drawing influences from the Appalachian folk, blues and bluegrass scene that has been so prominent there for several centuries, the Brothers also became very aware of the burgeoning folk-rock music that was developing on the West Coast in the late 60’s and early 70’s. After all, folks such as Jerry Garcia, David Grisman and various members of The Byrds were coming to North Carolina about that time to learn the styles of Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs and Doc Watson, just to name a few. The soaring celtic folk~rock~blues of Led Zeppelin were and still are a major influence on the Brothers music. Being good honorable Southern boys Tim and Danny could not help but be influenced by the blues-jazz groove jams of the Allman Brothers, the sweltering slow funk of Little Feat and the melodic pop sounds of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
