Press

“On his new CD, You Better Call Someone, Carlson steps out on his own and offers up seven well penned songs that feature superb playing, excellent vocals and clever songwriting that touches down on pop, blues, jazz and folk. The album is rich with musical and vocal magic and features the powerhouse tracks in the progressive slide masterpiece "Pay Hay Okee," the honky tonk of "You Got To Be Shitting Me," the clever "100 Decibel Shoes," and the Latin infused "Toxic Cameo." [D.S.] ”
