The Jules Carter Trio.
Jules plays his own original material and a few selected covers n an exciting amalgam of blues, rock, and jazzier styles, influenced by the great blues trios of the past, but with hints of Steely Dan, Gary Moore, Eric Johnson, and Mike Stern in the mix.
Recent gigs include appearances at the prestigious and multi award-winning Hebden Bridge Blues Festival, the Ealing Blues Festival, The Hertford Music Festival, and the Bushey Blues Festival..
Jules Carter Trio... virtuoso players, great music, exciting blues-jazz-rock.
Second album, 'Done Misbehaving'; eleven original tracks. Available NOW,
"Julian, you're a f***ing great guitar player, thank you for all your care and help, much appreciated" - Paul Reed Smith, PRS Guitars, Maryland USA.
"Did a wonderful recording session for the Jules Carter Trio... keep Reelin' Jules, such fun!" - Elliott Randall (Steely Dan). This session was for the song 'Purdie Shuffle', on the album 'Done Misbehaving'.
"One of the unexpected pleasures of the year was being asked to play a track on Jules Carter's new album. It gets better - the tune is called "The Purdie Shuffle" - which pays homage to my old friend, colleague and bandmate Bernard Purdie - the undisputed 'king of groove'. And did we ever groove!!! To call this great fun would be an understatement."

Review of The Ealing Blues Festival July 20th 2013.
"... on the South Stage the Jules Carter Trio were getting things going with brilliant covers of Cream, Hendrix, Steely Dan done in a Clapton mode but with an original style. Definitely a band to look out for!"
Blues In Britain review of the Ealing Blues Festival Sep 13 edition.
"Also testing the limits of the blues envolope were the Jules Carter Trio: self-confessed Steely Dan devotees, they mixed covers of their heroes including 'Josie' and 'Pretzel Logic', with originals that wore their influences on their sleeves: '27 Club' was a complex jazz-blues with a Dan vibe, and there was more Becker/Fagen influence behind both music and lyrics to 'But A Fool'. 'Blondie', a Fagenesque ironic stab at disco, saw some very Mike Stern-style guitar but it was still a surprise when the trio later launched into Stern's 'Tipatina's', a fantastically tricksy fusion number that they carried off with considerable aplomb..."
Nice review in the December issue of Blues In Britain magazine of our set at The Bushey Blues Festival. Following a review of the 'early blues' duo Delta Echoes…
'The Jules Carter Trio [picture] (above) come from an entirely different end of the spectrum. Self-confessed Steely Dan devotees, consummate professionals Jules, Paul White on drums and Steve Carty bass played a set of originals from their upcoming album Done Misbehaving, mixing blues with a large dollop of jazzy complexity, ranging from the funk of 'The Purdie Shuffle' to the out-and-out fusion of 'You Say No'. Jules is an accomplished guitarist turning out heavy blues on 'But A Fool', Mike Stern-like fluid dexterity on 'Bedroom Eyes' and a Gary Mooreish keening break on the ballad 'Since You Went Away''.
