Carbon Leaf
Carbon Leaf
For 25 years, 17 albums and 2500 live shows, Carbon Leaf’s independent spirit continues to resonate with it’s fans, young and old.

Pulling from folk, Americana, roots and rock traditions, the Virginia quintet’s lively sound features vocal harmony, acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and whatever else can be placed onto the stage.

The group’s current project is a 4-part series called Gathering, and centers on life and death; love and loss; heartbreak, loneliness and landscape and, ultimately, the need for community, gathering and human connection.

Carbon Leaf’s music is independently written, recorded and produced from the band’s studio in Richmond, VA.
Peter More
Over the years, Peter More and his bandmates have called many places home.
Originally from Fort Worth, Texas, More joined forces with Spanish flamenco
guitarist José Juan Poyatos, Mexican bassist Diego No
yola, and French
American drummer Adrien Faunce in San Miguel de Allende, the colonial arts
haven three hours north of Mexico City. There, the band began to record with
prolific drummer Rick Shlosser (who played on many Van Morrison and James
Taylor class
ics, among hundreds of other credits). A chance encounter with
Steely Dan's Donald Fagen, who happened to be visiting San Miguel, led to
Fagen producing More's debut album, "Beautiful Disrepair," and his follow
EP entitled "Shoulder."
Best described
by Donald Fagen as music with "a smart savvy edge...its an
American dish served with hot sauce." More's layered stories naturally have
evolved with the band’s continual movement through recording sessions beyond
San Miguel that took place in Fort Worth, N
ew York City, and Woodstock.
Wanderlust underscores More's music, weaving the many influences and
intersections from the songwriter's unconventional journey. The road just
seems to strengthen the bond between the band
mates and the power of More's
elt songs.
