Lead by Washington, D.C. based musician Carter Louthian, Carter Lou & the Project’s beginnings stem from tragic circumstances. The night before he was set to go to college, Lou snapped: his two best friends had recently killed themselves a day apart, and his girlfriend had just broken his heart.
Combined with the reality of the packaged post-college suburban life he was heading toward, he felt even more emptiness. He boldly told his parents that he wasn’t going to university in the morning and has chosen to pursue music instead. Since then, the band has packed out numerous headlining shows and earning a prestigious endorsement from PRS Guitars.
The music is loaded with full throttle, indie rock vibes and superb storytelling. The passion and emotion embedded within the performances is consistently clear and forever captivating, not to mention the use of some stunning melodies and hook sections that will stay with you long after listening. Well worth experiencing – turn it up loud.
