Carousel formed in 2015 after four established musicians and friends came together with one goal — to spread their stories and passion through their unique, captivating and emotional music. Their eclectic blend of Indie-Americana exudes influences such as the lyrical power of Bob Dylan and the energy and delivery of The Lone Bellow. Their brand of heartfelt, engaging music is breathing new life into venues all over the UK as the band begins to spread their gospel.
Carousel released their debut, self-titled EP in 2017, attracting attention from popular publications such as Maverick Magazine, RnR Magazine and The Mighty. Their prosperity is thickening into a gold of accolades — a productive year saw the band land them the reputable vote of ‘EP of the Year’ and ‘Favourite New Artist of the Year’ on Laurel Canyon Music as well as being named BBC Introducing in Essex ‘Sound of 2018’.
The start of 2018 saw Carousel continue to find success, supporting The Oh Hellos (USA) on their UK tour and seeing their single ‘Porcelain’ reach 100k streams on Spotify.
September/October 2018 will see the band debut on their own UK headline tour.
