"As one of (Winnipeg''s) most in demand session players, the guitarist/drummer has performed with and contributed to records by local roots/blues artists such as Big Dave McLean, Romi Mayes, The Perpetrators, The Scott Nolan Band, Righteous Ike and The Doug and Jess Band, and is ranked among Winnipeg''s most talented- and in many cases, most underrated- musicians."

"Now, after years of lending out his services as a side man, Carmichael, 39, is stepping out into the spotlight with a long- awaited self-titled solo debut."

"Recorded at Bedside Studios in Winnipeg, Chris Carmichael is a meaty, rocking alt-country record that only hints to his past as a blues man. It''s a big album, the kind that recalls open Prairie skies, endless dusty highways, and long, booze hazy nights and of course, the instrumentation is impressive- especially the seasoned guitar work which sounds complex and, at the same time, effortless."

Jen Zoratti, UPTOWN Magazine

Every great music scene has its anchors, people who never quite get their due from the public, but who are the backbone of sounds and successes. I''m talking about guys like Derek O''Brien and Bill Campbell in Austin, Texas, Steve Freund and David Maxwell in Chicago, Junior Watson in Los Angeles, and Chris Carmichael in Winnipeg, Canada. It may sound a little out of place to group Winnipeg with Austin, Chicago, and L.A., but the reality is that the music scene in Winnipeg is every bit as vibrant - arguably even more so - than cities much more widely recognized. Acts like The Perpetrators, Big Dave McLean, Righteous Ike, Romi Mayes, the Scott Nolan Band, they''re all world-class talents whose reputations continue to grow locally and internationally, and they all have something in common: Chris Carmichael. As one of the most in-demand guitarists and drummers in Winnipeg''s remarkable roots and blues music community, he has provided a wealth of talent and experience to countless recording sessions and live performances. Now, he brings forth his own album, a work long overdue, and one that showcases all of his talents.

Revealing vocal and instrumental styles influenced by a remarkable range of artists - flavoured by the likes of Mississipi John Hurt, Neil Young and Crazy Horse and Keith Richards, Carmichael unveils an album that stretches his blues and rock and roll roots in a powerful new direction. Combining Chris''s ease and grace in switching from one instrument to another (he plays all the guitars, bass, drums and percussion), and featuring contributions from Joanna Miller and Romi Mayes (backing vocals) and Bill Western (pedal steel), these songs add another chapter to a story of a truly talented musician coming of age in his own time and way.

As a friend and fan, I look forward to seeing Chris take centre stage, and I trust that the players he surrounds himself with for his live shows will also bring the k Club ind of passion he has captured on this album, and which he has displayed so well in his own sideman role.
