Alternative pop trio Carlton first started playing together in 2009 in their hometown of Washington DC. The men behind the band including Richard Wynne, Brian Jones, and Brendan McCuster find inspiration from many styles of music. “From groovy Motown inspired drum beats, to intricate African 6/8”, they don’t like to limit themselves and strive for a unique sound. This unique group incorporates improvisation and a level of experimentation to create a different experience every time you listen. Together they have created five EP’s and worked with well-known music industry contributors, such as engineer and producer, Ross Hogarth, and Dave Way. They recently released their first official album, “Stretching”, in October of 2013 and will be performing live in our art gallery presented by Midori on March 18th.
