True Confessions of an Infamous Liar

by John Carroll & The Trusty Sidekicks

"For me, John's record epitomizes everything roots music should be: Personal, detailed songs that haven't been written before. He's cliche-free, and the way he's not afraid of looking the abyss straight in the eye isn't depressing, it's invigorating." Geo

Album Notes
John Carroll is a richly evolved songwriter and musical performer. His debut solo release “The True Confessions of an Infamous Liar” proves to be a deeply satisfying listen for those who enjoy inspired and original songs. The album moves on levels comical, hopeful, dark and all too human, often simultaneously.

Laden with tasteful, tight, and magical performances and arrangements, this collection of songs manifests itself in a vibrant fashion. It captures and effortlessly shows not only the essence of a capable storyteller and singer, but also the exciting fusion of the work of a dedicated and diverse group of musicians in the form of The Trusty Sidekicks.

With a depth that grows more and more apparent at each listen, the work draws on elements of traditional and popular North American folk, blues and country, as well as a liberal infusion of modern rock and pop sensibilities, all filtered and ultimately unified by John’s soulful and honest voice, playing and storytelling.

Themes of misguided and serendipitous motion, drunken abandon and sobering arrival, trivial heroics, and even dashes of treachery all find themselves being rendered in this work.

John has traveled and performed across Canada, in the western United States, in France, and even in Middle East Asia, developing his skills and garnering the experiences and insights which form the inspiration for his work. Nightclubs, musical theatre, cruise ships, music festivals and street performance have all proven to be excellent experiences that give dimension to his adventurous, witty and intense live performance, which never fails to resonate with his audience.

Truly The Best
Couldm't be in China without this album on my iPod.

Justice Verite

A must-have for all of you grass-roots Ottawa folk fans!.
This CD is a sobering insight into the artists' experiences and philosophies. He comes across as a rough and tumble hooligan, but the music and lyrics tell the tale of a genuine, no-holds-barred type of musician who is deeply affected by his own reality. For a local musician, he has a worldly way about him and this does seep through in his music.
A must-have for all of you grass-roots Ottawa folk fans!
