The Carbonari

We are the Carbonari. Our name is borrowed from a secret society of revolutionaries that took great risk in the pursuit of freedom, liberty, and equality. Like them we endeavor to be brave, compassionate, and righteous, in our music and through the development of our characters. As individuals we have each felt a calling to play music, and we hope through our works together to create something constructive and beneficial for those amongst us who love peace, truth, and justice. Thank you for taking an interest in us, and I hope that you will accompany us in our journey forward. - Adam Vaagen

Slow Fences

Following a DIY aesthetic, Sleigh started recording his lo-fi melodies on a Tascam 4-track recorder as cassette-only releases while living in Knoxville, TN in the mid 90's. He began releasing his newer albums on CD starting with 2001's 'The Microphone Riots' and has self-released 5 full length albums since. His latest, 'Wearing Out The Spring' (released November 13, 2012) was recorded at his home studio (Microphone Riots) now located in Charlotte, NC. It was mixed by the venerable Craig Schumacher (Wavelab Studios in Tucson, AZ) whom he had formed a relationship with while recording in other Phoenix-based bands.

As a multi-instrumentalist, Sleigh has recorded and performed in a number of bands including: Rum Tenor (Phoenix, AZ), ...And Guppies Eat Their Young/Tierra Del Fuego (Tempe, AZ), Juarez (Tempe, AZ), Campo Bravo (San Francisco, CA), Elvin (Chicago, IL), Sunshone Still (Columbia, SC), Elonzo (Charlotte, NC), The Old Invention (Charlotte, NC), The Adulterers (Charlotte, NC) and The Loudermilks (Charlotte, NC).

Over time, Sleigh's albums have evolved from stripped-down solo affairs to him welcoming a growing and rotating cast of musicians with each new release. Sleigh is currently playing with drummer Ian Willers (Royal Trux) as the 'Slow Fences'. They are gearing up for more local/regional shows and working on a 6th studio album.
