At the age of eleven, guitarist/producer ''Earl Carter'' bought a couple of how to books and proceeded to teach himself how to play guitar. At age fifteen, he picked up the saxophone and joined his high school concert band, marching band and jazz ensemble. He practiced on both instruments for several hours everyday in hope of someday becoming a professional musician. Although he became proficient on both instruments, he eventually decided to focus primarily on sharpening his guitar playing skills.

During the late ''80s and early ''90s, Earl was a member of the platinum hit-making dance/GoGo band, "EU." With EU, he recorded music on the soundtrack to Spike Lee''s Do the Right Thing and the GoGo Live music video. In 1999, Earl laid several guitar tracks for many artists at P. Diddy''s New York City recording facility, "Daddy''s House." He has also co-produced dialogue recordings with his production partner J.R. Fenwick for motivational speakers Les Brown and Willie Jolley, author George Fraser and sports stars Jawan Howard and Nikki McCray.

He performed at several national, international and local concerts and programs some of which aired on television including; The Ghana Jazz Festival 2003, The Bermuda Jazz Festival 2002, The Bermuda Jazz Festival 2003, The National Smooth Jazz Awards 2002 and many others. In addition to the festivals, he spent time participating in local cable TV show tapings and played on several CD recordings that received national airplay and/or distribution including; Bobby Lyle''s - Straight and Smooth, Marcus Johnson''s -Live @ Blues Alley, Marcus Johnson''s Live - In Person DVD, Marcus Johnson''s - Just Doing What I Do, Jaared''s - Hangtime, Alyson Williams'' - It''s About Time, Yahzarah''s - Black Star, Kim Scott''s - Shake Down and Spike Lee''s Soundtrack to Do The Right Thing.

Earl uses world class players in his band and makes every effort to give his audience a spactacular show. He ocasionally performs at the legendary jazz club "Blues Alley" located in Washington DC and has just released this outstanding new CD project.
