BIO

Since winning two Grammys at such an early age, Jon has not slowed down as a performer, composer, arranger, producer, songwriter, and musician. His works have appeared in films, commercials, episodic dramas, and comedies. He is highly sought after studio session performer and has appeared on many recordings. His songs have been covered by artists such as Linda Ronstadt (her 80’s hit “Want Love? Get Closer!”), Tom Jones, and Kenny Rogers. He is the long-time keyboardist and backing vocalist for Mary Chapin Carpenter and has done touring stints for countless others including Rodney Crowell, Dixie Chicks, Peter Wolf, and Eric Lindell.

Jon’s work has been recognized repeatedly by the Washington Area Music Association (WAMA), which over the years has awarded him over 20 “Wammies” for Vocalist, Instrumentalist, Songwriter and Song of Year. As a songwriter, Carroll has been likened to artists as disparate as John Prine and E. Annie Proulx, with songs as insightful as they are rhythmic and soulful. He’s an in-demand hired hand, and performs as well with his own band and as a solo performer. In addition, numerous Carroll songs have been licensed and appear in films, TV shows, commercials and his intricate compositions punctuate and underscore many animated adaptations of award -winning children’s books for Scholastic Inc.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“Jon Carroll is a one man band, a poet, a songwriter, a singer of every kind of song and above all, a musician’s musician…and I can also attest to his being a not-to-be-missed performer.”
~Mary Chapin Carpenter

About Jon’s album, Love Returns: “…a vibrant reminder of what Carroll does best, whether it’s conjuring vintage R&B/soul sounds, or composing evocative ballad(s) which manage to bring to mind both novelist Annie Proulx and John Prine, or coming up with a country ditty as innocently engaging as On the Front Porch.”
“…he headlines this session with talent and charm to spare.”
~Mike Joyce, The Washington Post

“When I received the CD I couldn’t wait to listen and pick a song to play on my radio show here in the Nashville, TN area. That’s where I have a problem. There are so many good cuts that I can’t choose which one to put into regular rotation. So, I play them all. I know as an artist, you would prefer for me to concentrate on one song at a time for promotional purposes, so I will need you to advise me on what tune you are pushing. I guess my very favorite is ‘Joined At The Hip’ due to my love for R&B and horns. I don’t know, every song is GREAT!!” 

~Steve Jarrell,
