Diamond Carter


Diamond Carter, one of the most talented singer-songwriters I’ve met in a long time. This guy is the real deal cut from the same bolt as Van Morrison, Amy Winehouse, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. He’s got Grammy written all over him.

About


Diamond Carter is a character that represents an idea. The name comes from a song off of Mark Levine’s 1968 album “Pilgrim’s Progress,” in which the character Diamond Carter splits for the woods in order to maintain artistic integrity and love. Sometimes, I am Diamond Carter in my striving to be that pure artist. Other times, the band as a whole is Diamond Carter in our transcendental moments of melodic unity.

The Diamond Carter band is songwriter Tyler Tuohy on vocals and guitar; Cameron Black on Saxophone, Keyboard, and back-up vocals; Josh Cropper on bass guitar; and Trevor Hunnicutt on Drums. 

Currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, Diamond Carter began in 2012 in Southern California as the house band for the infamous LA underground club, 'The Silverlake Overpass.' The band's sound originated from Tuohy's attraction to the 60's revivalist groups that were sprouting out of Orange County during that period. Their stage antics were shaped by the people and stories that were a part of that underground scene that summer. The band's first record, 'Pink Balloon,' released on September 19, 2012, became a snapshot glimpse into the chaotic, early-twenties mindset of the Hollywood/Silverlake scene during that brief moment in time.

At the suggestion of Phil Camino (2+2 Management) and Chris Allen (The Collective Music Group), Tuohy traveled to Nashville, Tennessee - shortly after the release of 'Pink Balloon' - where he met and played for Gilles Godard (Olé Publishing.)

Gilles, who attributed Diamond Carter's soulful sound and Tuohy's vocal stylings to that of a "male Amy Winehouse," suggested that Tyler get the band out to the artistic community of East Nashville where he felt they would flourish.

With the help of Producer, Michael Gigante, the boys were brought out to East Nashville to once again embrace an awaiting scene. They quickly found support from Lighting 100 Nashville's Independent Radio - who named them Artist Of The Week, twice - and gave ample airplay to three of their singles ("Let Yourself Be Loved"; "Cali Christmas"; and "Evil Is A Young Man's Game") during the band's first year in Nashville.

In East Nashville, the boys have found a new cast of characters and a slew of fresh stories. These are the songs that are shaping up "Pink Balloon's" follow-up album, currently in development, to be recorded in Nashville, and set for release in the Fall of 2014. 


Diamond Carter :: 'The Silverlake Overpass' Era

The Silverlake Overpass

You have to be on a secret list to get in. It’s on the Eastside. Bands party there after their gigs. DJs are from that band. People "express themselves" in American Apparel or retro '90s trash-clothes. No one there calls themselves a hipster.

If Tom Wolfe’s Electric Kool Aid Acid Test was to be translated into a musical score post-Velvet Underground, Diamond Carter would be the result.

The group possesses a tangible charisma; watching them live is akin to witnessing the more intimate moments of a play, where the audience is privy to improvised conversation. Between relatable subject matter, (booze, evil women, and the wanderer’s plight), and a catchy, well-curated sound, Diamond Carter has quickly become one of Nashville’s most promising acts.

 
... there is fun Funk over here, and as you said ‘Disco’ and then, I just feel Prince coming out of you.
