Sean Carroll was raised on rock and roll. The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin were channels through which he dialed in to the history of blues and soul music, bringing names like Freddie King, and Leadbelly to the forefront of his musical education. With gospel, soul, blues, rock and roll, and funk always delivering precisely the groove needed to get Carroll affected, it’s clear that above all else he lives within the musical vein of “feel”.
LESS A FORCE THAN AN ENERGY, LESS A MOVEMENT THAN A MOOD, CARROLL’S APPROACH TO CREATING MUSIC IS BY A METHOD OF “WHATEVER FEELS RIGHT”.
He is very much a product of his influences, of which he sites Gary Clark Jr., Sly and The Family Stone, and The Rolling Stones to be of the most significance to his musical exploration.
