Please be advised that if you’re attending a show at World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, you should make plans to dine elsewhere beforehand. There are two great restaurants right across the street and plenty of others a few blocks away – we recommend Merchant Bar, La Fia, Chelsea Tavern and Twisted Soul.http://www.worldcafelive.com/event/1403318/
“After coming off of a successful 2 year tour behind Indian Summer, the label was eager to keep momentum going so we dove head first into the studio, without really having the new songs developed,” says Carbon Leaf’s front man Barry Privett. “This, coupled with an extremely small window for recording resulted in an album of songs we believed in that just didn’t reach their recorded potential. For the re-recording, we get the chance to address all of the things we didn’t like, or that didn’t work. Now, it’s a completely different album. It was a blurry time and we were left scratching our heads, and vowing not to adhere to a schedule just for the sake of keeping on schedule if the work is not done.”
“With Love Loss Hope Repeat Reneaux, the band achieves a more textured album that envelops the listener. “The original album was just so aggressive, heavy on vocals and drums, and the acoustic instruments were pushed to the side. It just always felt like we were selling something or like every song had to sound like a radio single. There was just no nuance to help the stories breathe.”
In addition to wanting to get the music right, it’s paramount for the band to have complete control over the songs they write, now that they have embraced being independent artists once again. With owning a new master recording, they no longer have to watch a chunk of their recorded history get funneled to a label they are no longer in business with.
“We have been together 23 years now, and our fans love this idea, of re-
recording existing music in between the new releases, and hearing the
band evolve as we re-acquaint them with music from our catalogue. In
doing so, we are also introducing a lot of newer fans to music that they
haven’t even considered. Our bassist and drummer haven’t even played
on some of the earlier stuff, and yet have been with us for 7 years now,”
Schuyler Fisk, Sam Wilson, and Carl Anderson all grew up in central Virginia and connected after all being fans of each others solo projects. Individually, they are all accomplished songwriters/ recording artists/ performers and have all had their own individual successes. Carl and Schuyler both having released 2 solo records of their own and Sam having released numerous albums as a part of his Americana rock band Sons of Bill (a band with his brothers Abe and James).
