"Drawing from the genres of Irish trad, Folk and balladeering, Carter's lyrics are pure
poetry with Guitar playing that sparkles and glimmers like light on water." (Ten/Ten
Adrienne Murphy, Hotpress Magazine)

"An intriguing Talent. John Leo Carter's evocative muse is much closer to Nick Drake
and Tim Buckley." (John O Regan, Irish Music Magazine)

John Leo's first solo album "Candyfloss girl" featuring John Spillane was very well
received and got great reviews in Ireland. His second full studio album "No Monsters only toys" Featuring Vyvienne Long on Cello and Emilia Amper on Nyckelharpa was launched at Kalmar Theater Sweden may 2016.

John Leo describes his new Album. After two years of arranging, changing and polishing,
I am delighted with the outcome and I have had Amazing Musicians contributing with different styles and instruments. It is a full-length album but feels like 13 individual journeys. What I am hoping the audience will take with them is realness and honesty, the inner struggle we all have to deal with. The importance of family and holding out a hand of peace and friendship.

"No Monsters only toys" Album revieuw:

This long awaited album delivers a distinct unity a production unique of its kind. He brings
the ordinary to attention with simplicity in his voice. He layers and builds his arrangements
through detailed attention to each instrument. John has a very strong presence in his voice
and takes the audience with him on musical journey, with a unique angle. The album will not
leave its audience untouched.
