Carbon Leaf

2013 was Carbon Leaf’s most ambitious year yet as a fully independent band, releasing two full-length albums, Ghost Dragon Attacks Castle and Constellation Prize six months apart from each other.

For 2014, the band is taking a quick breath to look back at their 2004 album, Indian Summer, by celebrating it’s 10-year anniversary with a complete re-recording and a 50 city tour this fall.

Lead vocalist Barry Privett:

“The timing was perfect since we had just come off of 5 album releases back-to-back since leaving the label in 2010. We were ruminating on what the next batch of songs would look like when we realized Indian Summer was going to be 10 years old this fall! We gained a lot of new exposure with “Life Less Ordinary”, making it to #5 at AAA and #28 at Hot AC radio, so we wanted to acknowledge the album’s anniversary, as it was a fan-favorite and a very seminal album for us. There was only one problem – our former label owned the master recording, so we were pretty limited as to what we could do. However, we owned the songs, and after doing a little digging through the contract, we found a work-around that opened up an opportunity for us to simply re-record the album anew, so that’s what we did. Now, we have a great way of celebrating an album that helped us widen our audience, while putting Indian Summer back under the band’s wing again.

“We left our label in 2010, partly so that we could adopt a more rigorous release schedule and not wait to release an album every 2 years. We wanted to see how far we could push ourselves musically so we set about a rigorous agenda for writing, recording, releasing and touring. With 5 projects released since 2010, plus the Curious George II soundtrack for Universal and U.S. tours behind them all, it’s been an intense time to say the least, so looking back at some of the music that shaped our career earlier on, while trying to crawl into that creative space you were in back then but with fresh eyes and ears, is very gratifying. We think fans are going to really enjoy Indian Summer Revisited.”

With their soulful four-part harmonies, poetic lyrics and indelible melodies, it's easy to see why the Atlanta Journal Constitution would hail von Grey as "nothing short of stunning." They sound like they were born to play together – and, in fact, they were. The four sisters have been playing music nearly their entire lives. Classically trained from an early age, the Atlanta-based quartet – Kathryn, Annika, Fiona and Petra von Grey – have built on that foundation by performing upwards of 200 shows in the past two years, from recurring residency tours at intimate venues throughout the southeastern U.S. to supporting gigs with such artists as Sarah McLachlan.!
