2003 – present (15 years)
Austin, Travis County, Texas, United States
Tia Carrera is a Stoner rock, band hailing from Austin, TX. They are currently signed with the Australian Cattle God label and are working on a self-titled album, to be released sometime in 2007.
Austin, Texas denizens Tia Carrera consist of drummer Erik Conn, guitarist Jason Morales, and bassist Andrew Duplantis. Their third offering, which is untitled but marked ACG 012 (for Australian Cattle God 012), is music that takes the listener on a major drug trip. The opiate daze in the guitar lines, the sedative drift of the drum rolls, and the tranquilizing haze of the bass wells all ring with stoner rock keys and a flying kite-like carpet ride. The band has been compared to Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath but they have a Southern rock intonation in their chord ruminations more aligned with the Allman Brothers, The Grateful Dead, and Widespread Panic.
