John Carroll is a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist who has explored music as his mode of expression for over 25 years. John and his band, The Epic Proportions, released their new album, 'EVERYBODY SMOKES IN HELL,' this year in January to a sold out show at The Black Sheep Inn. This album has received attention from campus radios across the country, charting in the Top TEN on EarShot's Folk/Roots charts. Canada's Folk, Roots and World Music magazine PENGUIN EGGS stated:
"If Hades had a telephone line to Earth, a call from down there would sound like John Carroll’s voice on Everybody Smokes In Hell."
John's first two full length solo albums, “The True Confessions of an Infamous Liar,” (2003) and “Lost Radio” (2008) were well received and sold to audiences all over Canada, the U.S and parts of Europe. John’s albums fit “comfortably into a variety of genres and time-periods, all the while synthesizing the eclectic elements” of “his music into a coherent, contemporary and colorful sound” (indieAndie.ca). Whether its performing for national broadcast on Canada Live with his band (CBC Radio One & Two, 2008), playing solo for the packed house of his weekly at The Chateau Lafayette, or traveling to the many music houses across Canada, John’s music treats his audiences to the vibrational equivalent of coming home.
