"new blues artist we now can't live without....Jody Carroll, whose textured blues and other roots were dark and haunting.."

No Depression, Amos Perrine

"You have to wonder if he didn't strike the same deal as delta shaman Robert Johnson.."

The Oregonian, Portland Oregon

"His fingerpicking and slide skills amaze and challenge listeners while his moving vocals draw them into the world of a true story teller.."

Cascade Blues Association 

"Jody Carroll is quite possibly one of the most important players in the blues scene. He is a pivotal artist within the genre because his grasp of the history & roots of blues as well as traditional music is firm… and it shows in his performances..."

"An exceptionally talented blues, Americana, Roots musician with the heart of a storyteller beating eloquently in the modern world.." Gail Watts, Oak Forrest Festival

Announcing: New studio album release
Back to the Country

American Blues & Roots Folk Music Artist Jody Carroll presents  this new solo acoustic album, Back to the Country. These sixteen genre-bending tracks, are a testament to tradition, authenticity and the power of one man and one instrument.   It captures the wildly blazen and gritted style that is Jody Carroll. Brilliant and barrelling, hell-bound blues arrangements are brought to the breaking point as he mercilessly weaves traditional and modern times together through his rich vocal style, and haunting tones of his vintage instruments. 

Jody Carroll is a new breed of Blues man. His sound is a ground breaking mix of old America Roots/Blues and beyond creating an intense soundscape armed only with a guitar/Banjo and voice.  Imagine if you mixed Robert Johnson's dark personal honesty with the modern flamboyant fire of Hendrix.....you get Jody Carroll
