“A Weaver of New Americana Folk Tales”
Carl Solomon crafts songs from his journey through life, from carnival barker to counselor to songwriter. Growing up in Brooklyn with a beat poet’s name, and then on to Baltimore. He creates portraits of characters, real or imagined, from his travels, relationships and observations. He paints with strings instead of brushes, creating images that come to life. His use of language, recollections and humor reflects the diverse facets of the human experience which, when quilted together, form a collection of songs you won’t soon forget.
His influences are songwriters/storytellers: John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen & Woody Guthrie
