CD Review: Bill Carter Returns With A New Album Of "Innocent Victims"

From Austin, TX comes the latest album from singer/songwriter Bill Carter titled "Innocent Victims & Evil Companions," which is being released on February 26 through Forty Below Records. Carter's music has been performed by the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble and The Fabulous Thunderbirds and even by Carter's pal Johnny Depp. His new fourteen-song release has Bill Carter combining the strengths of country and rock to create some outstanding songs like "Lost In A Day" and "Sooner Or Later."

Helping him out on his new album are a load of some of the greatest studio musicians, including Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan), Denny Freeman (Bob Dylan), David Holt (The Mavericks), Dony Wynn (Robert Palmer) and Mike Thompson (The Eagles) just to name some. The opener "Black Lion" is a raw, bluesy piece of music that allows Carter to deliver some emotional lyrics. The sixties sound of "Bughouse In Pasadena" and the seventies honky-tonk, Rolling Stones-type vibe of "Fisherman's Daughter" display's Carter's appreciation for all genres of music. The album finishes with the up-tempo, pop/rock appeal of "Exiled" and the gentle acoustics of "No More Runnin'."
