Fresh Blues

by Big Al Carter

A big voice. A big show. That's BIG AL CARTER. He is one of the freshest, most original and highest energy showmen to emerge on the Portland music scene in many years. His stage charisma and presence are not only taking Portland, but the international music scene by storm. With his raw power and appeal, audiences and listeners are drawn to his sound and energy both live on stage and on his CD’s. Rooted in the Portland blues scene, BIG AL has developed a unique sound that includes both a soulful and hard rockin' flavor at the same time. Not limited by just the blues, BIG AL incorporates rock, swing, gospel and most importantly soul into his sound.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A big voice. A big show. That's BIG AL CARTER. He is one of the freshest, most original and highest energy showmen to emerge on the Portland music scene in many years. His stage charisma and presence are not only taking Portland, but the international music scene by storm. With his raw power and appeal, audiences and listeners are drawn to his sound and energy both live on stage and on his CD’s. Rooted in the Portland
blues scene, BIG AL has developed a unique sound that includes both a soulful and hard rockin' flavor at the same time. Not limited by just the blues, BIG AL incorporates rock, swing, gospel and most importantly soul into his sound. A band of some of the highest caliber hired-gun musicians in the Pacific Northwest musically support him. Add in his natural charismatic stage personality and energy and you have a musical and show product that is irresistible! Vocalist, front man and rhythm guitarist, BIG AL also plays the blues harmonica and even a Jew's harp. A guitar player since the age of eight, BIG AL cut his teeth in the entertainment industry playing and fronting for numerous rock bands around the San Francisco area in the 80's performing everything from Neil Young to 80's big hair bands. In the 90's he developed a vocal style with a cross of Rod Stewart and Bob Seger with a blues feel. He fronted several more rock bands always playing rhythm guitar, harmonica and singing. Formerly a dot.com Silicon Valley Business Executive, he decided he had to get out of town. He consequently left the hustle of Silicon Valley and moved to the Portland area with its powerful music scene and attractive quality of life. He since has dived head first into the Portland music scene, particularly paying his dues and showing high respect for the exceptional level of Portland's blues scene. Consequently, he's garnered considerable help and made many contacts who have guided and helped him along with his plan and musical vision. Like any successful business executive, BIG AL approaches the music business with a solid business plan and vision for success. He firmly believes that if you haven't got a
a winning plan and business model, then your company (in this case the band) and product (the show and his music) can never hope to succeed. The key to his plan and success is the people around him. He makes it clear that any successful executive will always surround himself with the very best people he can find. It's a simple equation. Get the very best people on board and let them perform to their very best with a winning team attitude. And the very best musicians are who BIG AL has recruited for his backing band. The line-up is a who's who of top talent. His first CD "Soul Blue" has been getting air playnationally along with indie and college radio stations and international stations in European markets such as Poland, Belgium and France. Magazine reviews have provided strong endorsements of his musical power and charisma.
