Recent release:
Brian Carpenter & the Confessions
The Far End of the World

The debut album from Brian Carpenter and the Confessions finds the leader's weary yet melodic voice carrying timeless tales of lost love, memory and desire, wandering lyrically across an arid yet fertile American landscape. Melding styles from 50's balladry to reverb-drenched spaghetti western music, The Far End of the World will appeal to fans of music as diverse as Johnny Cash, Wilco and the Velvet Underground


Joined by violinist/singer Carla Kihlstedt of the Tin Hat Trio for many of the tracks, and backed by an ace crew of Boston musicians, the Florida-born Carpenter unfurls an eerie and seductive tapestry of sound and words in songs that seem less like they were written than they emerged from an imaginary, vivid landscape.


Carpenter's work as a trumpeter in a quite a different vein can be heard on three Accurate releases from the Ghost Train Orchestra.
