Description: High-energy, radio-friendly pop-rock with eclectic influences
Profile: After less than two years of full-time touring, The Chris McCarty Band already appears poised on the brink of a major breakthrough onto the national music scene. Logging close to 200 dates a year throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic, the band has garnered significant regional attention from both fans and industry types through support spots for Robert Randolph & the Family Band, Cowboy Mouth, North Mississippi All-Stars, The Gin Blossoms, Sugar Ray, Pat McGee Band, Seven Mary Three, and others; through high-profile spots in major music festivals such as the Great Southern Music Harvest, Mobile Bayfest, and the 50,000-person UF Gator Growl; and through sold-out headlining shows of their own. To date, the band has sold over 7,000 copies of its first two EP's, What's Going Down and Naked, and after spending most of the past winter off the road to record, The Chris McCarty Band released a new full-length album, entitled Dreaming in Stereo, on April 23.
With this new album, The Chris McCarty Band finally captured the chemistry that exists between these five friends and is clear to the audience every night they perform. Filled with introspective yet positive songwriting, Dreaming in Stereo talks about life – ambition, personal insecurity, man's role in the world, both the struggles and joys of love. Chris, Phil, Julius, Greg, and Gabe are very different people, and come from diverse musical backgrounds. However, both on this album and on stage, they are able to find the commonality between their passions and make music that draws on all of these different influences. They create music which speaks to people regardless of their background or age.
