Carter Brown is a name you may not have heard of yet. The up & coming artist from Queens has been recording music since the age of 11. According to Carter he always had an ear for music, so he quickly put it to use. The journey for a rising artist in today’s entertainment industry is no easy road. Using the internet as a platform, anyone can drop a project at will. What comes along with that is an overcrowded highway full of artists trying to speed toward the same goal. As a result, sounds tend to blend and it’s difficult to set yourself apart if you don’t make it a priority to do so.
It’s a battle that Carter has been fighting for a long time: trying to find his own identity while still catering to the sounds that the masses love. He’s made himself a student of the game by not only listening back to himself and different engineers but also getting feedback from fans of his records. The end result is his newest mixtape, Natural. Appropriately named, Natural is the culmination of a creative who finally realized the power in tuning out the noise. In other words, all feedback isn’t necessary to consume. On top of that, it’s not necessary to bite the style of whatever is trending on the radio or the internet.
After reaching a personal milestone that has freed Carter's mind, enabling him to get back to making music that’s true to him as a person, we can expect a dope project. With nine tracks including songs produced, written, and recorded by Carter Brown himself, listeners can expect a mix between gritty and delicate sounds.
