Album Notes
Mississippi Gabe Carter was born in South Bend, Indiana. He was raised in rural Southwest Michigan. He was the only child of divorced parents and moved around among towns within the area.

Carter was given his first guitar at age five. The guitar was purchased, by his father, for $5.00 at a garage sale. Carter started by teaching himself to play blues on one string. He also played along with his father, who played blues on the piano.

As a young man Carter saw a guitarist by the name of Jack Owens -- of Bentonia, Mississippi -- in a documentary that had been rented on video from the local public library. Carter, from that point on, was deeply influenced by the music of Owens; and the school of music that is native to the town of Bentonia. By far, the most well known musician from Bentonia was Skip James.

Over the years Carter has spent time in and out of Mississippi learning from his heroes, including the still performing Bentonia great Jimmy "Duck" Holmes, and he has developed a musical style that is his own and unique, yet is very much rooted in the Bentonia school of blues.

This album was recorded by the world renowned French sound engineer, Jean-Yves Munch, who has been instrumental in launching Carter's music career.

What a Great CD - Gabe's music moves the soul and warms the spirit

Amy @ 88.3 KABF Little Rock

An excellent work. Towing the line, nodding towards tradition--in a way that points distinctly forward. This is for the folks that dig that good stuff: raw, real, seasoned hill country chops.
