RJ McCarty is a force of music. Intricate folk/americana-inspired songwriting supported by a diverse variety of instrumentation lays ground for gritty, authentic vocals to paint over; which brings to life a surreal-yet-familiar world that exists within us all.

RJ cut his teeth as a kid in the music scene, and has lately been touring internationally in England, Canada, and the United States as an original act in support of his newest release: a self produced 7-track record upon which he played every instrument.

He can also be found touring as a multi-instrumentalist for the critically-acclaimed psychedelic folk band, the Slambovian Circus of Dreams.

He draws inspiration from the flowing, playful vocals of Van Morrison, to the deep-rooted, soulful dirt and heart of Sister Rosetta Tharpe; as well as the world and phenomena surrounding and within them. Toss in Dr John's ivory keys, shapeshifting guitar-slingin' that bends with the music, and an old Hammond organ that will lift you off your seat -- it all comes together for a dynamic live show!

Performing "with a little help from his friends", drummer Chris Van Rooyen and bassist Matt Mondell join RJ for an unforgettable night of music that is sure to move your soul! A splendid time guaranteed for all!

"Like the Allman Brothers, the Avett Brothers, and the Wood Brothers had another brother!"

"With powerful vocals and from-the-heart lyrics, RJ McCarty has quickly lit an intense fuse within the music scene. One of New England's best undiscovered talents. ” -Joziah Longo
