Ben Carr, aka CARRTOONS, is the hotly-tipped multi-instrumentalist and producer from New York whose music brings the electric bass to the forefront.
A year and a half after releasing his self-produced, independent full-length LP Saturday Morning to critical acclaim, producer and multi-instrumentalist CARRTOONS plans his return to music with his next album, Homegrown. Evolving his trademark Modern Motown sound, CARRTOONS continues to expand his already diverse musical repertoire in jazz, soul, hip-hop, and more. Set for release on April 20th, 2022, Homegrown is Ben Carr's inaugural release with renowned Wichita Recordings (Bloc Party, First Aid Kit, My Morning Jacket, Yeah Yeah Yeahs.)
The youngest son of jazz violinist Richard Carr (Bill Laswell, Bootsy Collins), Ben received his college degree in Jazz Performance, made his debut with Mad Satta, and opened for artists like Thundercat, Nick Hakim, Gabriel Garzon Montano, and Mac Ayres. Over the last few years, he has become one of the most sought-after producers in music through his eye-catching Instagram videos, powerful bass lines, and memorable melodies. His unique fills, phrases, and compositions made him an instant favorite, leading to recent collaborations with Robert Glasper, Alex Isley, Kiefer, and Butcher Brown.
This is his debut physical release following a string of highly successful digital self-releases. This releases features buzzing rapper Rae Khalil, Grammy winning singer Nigel Hall (Cabbage) and a host of rapidly rising young stars.
