Adam here and today I’m making Nashville’s own Diamond Carter my DJ pick of the week with his new jangly jaunt “I Believe in Too (things).”
Currently based in Nashville, Diamond Carter aka singer/songwriter Tyler Tuohy began in 2012 in Southern California as the house band for the infamous LA underground club, ‘The Overpass.’ Their sound originated from Tuohy’s attraction to the 60’s revivalist groups that were sprouting out of Orange County during that period. Their stage antics were shaped by the people and stories that were part of that underground scene that summer and the band’s first record, ‘Pink Balloon,’ released on September 19, 2012, became a snapshot glimpse into the chaotic, early-twenties mindset of the Hollywood/Silverlake scene during that brief moment.
Diamond Carter’s current sound straddles the border between blues, jazz and indie-pop. Listen to “I Believe in Too (things)” at your leisure and let us know what you think.
