Brother Roy “Carolina” – Listen

Carolina is a track from the debut album, Last Man Standing, from growly voiced folk-rocker Brother Roy. It’s a superb funky groove with touches of Levon Helm and Dr John in the vocal whilst the keyboards take their lead from Al Kooper’s mid-sixties work with Dylan. It’s a truly classic sound from an artist who unashamedly confesses to influences like Harry Nilsson, The Beatles, The Band, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young – a familiar name-check list for sure but rather refreshingly Brother Roy writes and sings songs that sound like he actually has been influenced by ’em. Rolling and rollicking it’s a good time encapsulated.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
