About Dead Winter Carpenters
In a time when music has been transformed and genre lines are left behind like the seasons, Dead Winter Carpenters are producing an ever-evolving style of music. The time spent, both in the studio in the woods and criss-crossing the American countryside, has provided Dead Winter Carpenters with a ground-breaking sound that blends Americana roots-rock with a tinge of straightforward ‘tell-it-like-it-is’ Alt. Country that is as hard-hitting as it is whimsical. While the roadsigns and towns pass by the windows on down the highway of tour, DWC are writing original material based on their life experiences. “Dirt Nap”, the band’s latest EP, is a musical journey which speaks magnitudes to these experiences.
The uplifting “Bootleg Jack” melds together banjo, handclaps, harmonica and fiddle into a musical amassment of down-home experiences of whiskey riddled fun. The stormy, somber, and longing tone of “West Shore Town” speaks to the darker side of existence. Conversely, the upbeat rambling sounds of the the telecaster and the lyrics of “Triumph” speak of man living with hard times who sees the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. One can’t help but feel the change of the alchemy brewing within Dead Winter Carpenters.
Foot-stomping original tunes blended with the band’s onstage presence highlighted by the vocal melodies and five part harmonies, ferocious fluidity of the fiddle, deep pounding thump and thud of the upright bass, country ramblings of the telecaster and acoustic guitars, and the driving drums all meld together to create an experience that is sure leave you wanting more…
