Carter’s childhood was spent studying the music of songwriters such as Shawn Mullins, the Indigo Girls and Matthew Sweet. By the age of 12, he had developed a guitar style informed both by these influences and by the guitar work of Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Gilmour and Joe Bonamassa. In a summer program at Berklee College of Music in 2005, Carter studied songwriting, advanced music theory and rock guitar performance, developing a new appreciation for the techniques and styles of virtuoso guitar players like John Petrucci, Eric Johnson and Greg Howe. As a solo artist, Carter’s songwriting style therefore reflects a combined love of the guitar’s unique voice and that of carefully-penned lyrics and heartfelt vocal melodies. Cooper Carter & the Royal Senders pairs a guitar-driven, energetic musical approach with a compositional and lyrical style informed by those of singer-songwriters greats.
