About Carbon Leaf

Through 24 years, 16 albums and 2300 live shows, Carbon Leaf’s independent spirit and vibrant music continues to resonate with their fans.

Using folk, Celtic, bluegrass, Americana and rock influences, the Virginia quintet’s songs of life, love, heartbreak and landscape are independently written, recorded and produced from their studio in Richmond.  

After 5 years of intense touring and releasing albums in 9-month intervals,  Carbon Leaf reduced their 2016 road schedule to focus on some lingering projects, including the release of Nothing Rhymes With Woman, the third and final re-recorded album originally released through their formal record label.  Along with completing new versions of Indian Summer (2004) and Love Loss Hope Repeat (2006), the band’s goal of regaining 100% ownership of their music catalogue was achieved.

This fall, Carbon Leaf will be on tour throughout the U.S. supporting a new collection of songs called ‘Gathering’.  The new album leans heavily on fiddle, mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitars, bass, drums and vocal harmony.
