Composer Guitarist Producer

Adventures are to the adventurous … and Carl Carlton has had quite a few of them. It has been a while since Carl Carlton left the far northern region of Germany called Frisia to explore the world beyond and play in some of the most successful rock bands in Europe and the U.S. Not just an extraordinary talented guitarist, Carlton has also taken successfully on the roles of songwriter, composer, musical director and producer. In 1999, inspired by friend and mentor Robert Palmer, Carlton added the role of bandleader to this list by forming his own band „Carl Carlton & the Songdogs“ – a fascinating melting pot of diverse nationalities and roots music styles.

In 2014 Carl Carlton takes a new turn towards a new magical land with his new album “Lights Out in Wonderland”. Out on November 21st, 2014.
