"ROAM" SONG BIO:
In a step of reinvention, Nashville songwriter Jeff Carl, 27, digs deep with his new song "Roam", the second single release from his forthcoming EP, CAGES, due March 2018. Moving away from his piano-centric roots into a new synth-laden alt-pop universe, Jeff's created a captivating new home for the lush vocals and soul-searching lyrical content he's become known for. Through themes of identity, belonging, self-empowerment, forgiveness, and hope, "Roam" feels both earnest and triumphant, a call to action, both for him and those who relate, to take the first steps toward becoming a truer, better self.
SINGLE RELEASE DATE: Friday, February 9, 2016
CONTEXT OF RELEASE:
After a flourishing 2016, filled with Jeff’s move to Nashville from NYC, a sophomore EP release (called Survive), an east coast tour, music video premiere, regular radio rotation, a successful online cover video series, and a handful of local performances in Nashville, Jeff went charging into 2017, performing at SXSW as part of The Nashville House and traveling to Sundance Film Festival for a unique songwriting showcase. The rest of the year was spent entirely in studios, reaproaching and reinventing his sound and songs for a brand new chapter of music. Through months of exploration with renowned Nashville producers, exploring a more synth-based, pop-centered soundscape, Jeff discovered a whole new universe for his songwriting, which brings us to now. 2018 is Jeff’s year to share his evolution from his piano-centric, singer/songwriter roots into a more confident, complete alt-pop powerhouse. First up to bat is his CAGES EP, due March 2018, introduced first by his single “Roam”, perfectly capturing the triumphant push forward in Jeff’s journey.
