Reliably informed

You have probably heard the music of CARM, albeit under another name. Responsible for composing and performing horn sections for John Legend, Sufjan Stevens and The National, CARM has been leaving his gentle fingerprints across the genre for well over a decade. The talent, who has just finished supporting Bon Iver, (another collaborator) on tour, embarks on his own solo tour, making his way to The Cluny on the 10th of April.

The tour will feature the work on CARMs star-studded debut album, as well as his exciting and genre-blending follow up. The sound of CARM is deliberately elusive, denying conformity to uniform genres, instead opting to float somewhere between the parameters of jazz, pop, classical and ambient. Taking the brass to the forefront, CARM creates space, emotion and a time to ponder, reflect and emote. CARM aims to reinvent the trumpet and push it into a present setting, reaching skyward.

With both records curating the greatest producers, beats and ideas in the industry, this passion project is beautifully instilling love into each note, creating something heartfelt, modern and refreshing. For anyone seeking a unique display of visionary talent, look no further than CARM’s visit to Newcastle.

CARM performs at The Cluny on Monday 10th April.
