Carbon Leaf with songs from Indian Summer Revisited With a steady stream of independent releases in the works for 2013, Carbon Leaf's autonomous voyage has come full circle recording and producing from their own studio and releasing their music directly to fans starting with Ghost Dragon Attacks Castle in February, a 12-song collection of Celtic-inspired original tunes. Blending Folk, Celtic, Bluegrass, Americana, Rock and Pop, perhaps Carbon Leaf's music can best be summed up in the title of one of their earliest albums, Ether-Electrified Porch Music - a sound that conveys an aura of warmth, punctuated by diverse instruments including mandolin, upright bass, fiddle, penny whistle, banjo, peddle steel as well as acoustic and electric guitars. Now in their 20th year of award-winning recording, this Virginia quintet is consistently traversing America with their nonstop touring schedule, bringing with them an impressive portfolio of achievements, as they continue to produce a steady stream of new music coupled with energetic live-shows throughout North America. Carbon Leaf debuted as an independent college band in 1993, eventually leading to a recording contract with Vanguard Records in 2004, resulting in three albums during their six years with the label. Along the way, Carbon Leaf has scored hit singles at AAA and Hot AC Radio with "Life Less Ordinary" and "The Boxer," placed first in the International Songwriting Competition for "The War Was In Color", was the first independent band to ever win an American Music Award, and in 2010, recorded the music for Universal Pictures 'Curious George 2' Soundtrack and released the wonderfully received original holiday/winter concept album, Christmas Child. In celebration of 20 rich years together, the band has an ambitious slate of new singles and full-album releases planned in 2013 for the turning of each new season.
