Indie Americana 4-piece Carousel will release their debut EP on 22nd September 2017.
Based in Southend-on-sea, Carousel are Thomas Eatherton (Vocals, Electric Guitar), Chris Hobart (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Bass), Sarah Holburn (Vocals, Mandolin, Harmonium) and Toby Shaer (Fiddle, Cittern, Vocals).
The band fuses Americana, country, folk, rock ‘n’ roll, blues and roots into a unique blend that gives them a distinct sound. All four band members perform vocals on their music.
Carousel list their influences as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Brandi Carlile and The Lone Bellow. They are aiming to be one of the breakout groups on the emerging UK Americana and country scene.
Formed in 2015, Carousel were originally four individual solo musicians that decided to come together. They have been working on their debut EP for two years and it’s not long now until fans will be able to hear the fruits of their labour.
Carousel have performed at a number of festivals over the summer including Leigh Folk Festival, Live Expressions Festival and Daxtonbury Festival.
