With the release of First Bird To Sing last year, Bruce T Carroll has continued to carve out a niche for himself as a fine Americana artist with a social conscience and a deft lyrical touch. Recorded at The Building in Marlboro, NY with premier Hudson Valley sidemen Lee Falco, Brandon Morrison, Will Bryant, Sara Milonovich and Connor Kennedy, First Bird To Sing is a collection of eight beautifully written songs that cover a wide stylistic ground, touching on deeply personal themes and troubling societal issues. It is a worthy successor to Bruce’s first two records, Ruckus and Romance (hailed by No Depression Magazine in 2017 as “devilishly brilliant” and “intensely beautiful”), and Finding You (a “fine, intense commentary on America’s past” No Depression, 2018).

By releasing three albums and a single (“Lift Your Head Up”, 2020) in the short span of five years, Bruce is making up for lost time. He spent fourteen years (1999-2013) operating the legendary Larchmont, NY music venue The Watercolor Café, where he presented regional and national acts of as well as new and undiscovered acts that soon broke upon the national scene. While presenting great music in a beautiful club setting was a labor of love for Bruce, it often kept him from pursuing his first love and overriding passion: lyric songwriting. Since closing the Watercolor in early mid-2014, Bruce has had the time and headspace to plunge back into songwriting and performing, both solo and with the Bruce T Carroll Band, which had been on hold since his early days playing in the heady NYC music scene of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

A former New York City cab driver, bartender, bouncer, and actor, David Ray’s songs have been described as “cinematic.” They’ve been sung by artists as varied as Grammy-winner Shawn Colvin and Dove Award winner Kathy Troccoli, and recorded by producers from Arif Mardin to Rick Wake. Along with Lyle Lovett, Richie Havens, Julie Gold (From a Distance) and others, his early Fast Folk recordings are now part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.
