Carney Debut EP, Tour Dates

Indie label DASLabel recently release LA indie pop outfit Carney‘s debut EP, Nothing Without You. The band is currently touring the EP and will play over 30 dates across the country, including this year’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, TN. Carney is fronted by Reeve Carney (vocals & guitar) and Zane Carney (lead guitar), along with John David Lipscomb (bass) and Jon Epcar (drums).

You can download their track “Testify” here.

The story of the band starts in earnest in 1997, when Reeve’s mother, after becoming unable to afford guitar lessons, started bringing Reeve to an old Los Angeles blues club where he started playing weekly with artists over twice his age. The experience brought a maturity and worldview not often found in such a young songwriter. Reeve soon began playing with his brother Zane and friends from school. As the band grew older and Carney’s sound developed, they drew influences from artists and individuals as divergent and innovative as John Lee Hooker, David Bowie and Django Reinhardt to Tim Burton, Thomas Edison and Walt Disney.

They have been signed to his newly formed DASLabel and their album Imperial Lover will be released in the fall of 2008. Carney will be touring pretty much incessantly (dates below) for the foreseeable future, so catch this dynamic band when they head your way!
