Darryl Carter is Back!


Songwriter, producer, raconteur and all-around awesome person Darryl Carter is back on the other side of the microphone performing as an artist, which is something he hasn't done in a very long time. As you may know, we are big fans of Darryl's singing voice, and have been urging him to record an album for years. This EP is a start, with a remixed version of his own take on Woman's Gotta Have It giving Womack a run for his money!

Starting Tomorrow, a song he wrote with the late great Jonah Ellis, was originally slated for Syl Johnson, and had been on the shelf for over fifteen years before Carter decided to cut it himself... we're sure glad he did - can you say funky?! Ellis, who passed on in 2010, had been Darryl's songwriting partner for many years, and four of their amazing compositions (including the title track) were included on Otis Clay's latest release, Truth Is.

Darryl's EP is available at Amazon, and for $1.78 you owe it to yourself to download a copy. He's the real deal!
