“Stunning!” – MOJO
“…total mastery of just about every guitar technique imaginable” – Guitar Techniques
“…probably the best and most original young guitar player and composer in Great Britain.” – Acoustic Guitar Magazine (USA)
Guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll’s masterful compositions, coupled with his versatility and unparalleled technical virtuosity, have rendered him one of today’s most admired and respected guitarists.
Essex born guitarist Clive Carroll made his musical debut at age two as a banjo-strumming cowboy singing nursery rhymes. Clive went on to earn a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London, all the while balancing his classical work with forays into the world of the steel string guitar. A chance meeting with the late John Renbourn changed the course of Clive’s musical career and the two toured the U.K. and North America together, with Renbourn encouraging Clive to release his first solo album in 2000.
Since then Clive has gone from strength to strength, touring solo around the world and alongside lauded guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. Clive has also composed music for major films and has been awarded an array of awards and accolades, such as inclusion in Total Guitar Magazine’s “Top 10 Acoustic Guitarists of All Time”. Clive newest CD, “The Furthest Tree”, was released in May 2016 and is already being hailed as some of his finest work to date. See www.clivecarroll.com
“Clive Carroll has a vast musical palette and a sweeping creative vision…Equally at home playing fingerstyle or wielding a flatpick, Carroll creates music that defies categorization…It’s not easy to artfully mix altered tunings, renaissance and classical harmony, Delta blues, odd-meter riffage, body percussion and even jazz manouche, but Carroll makes it sound natural and effortless” – Guitar Player
