Through 24 years, 16 albums and 2300 live shows, Carbon Leaf’s independent spirit and vibrant music continues to resonate with their fans.

Blending folk, Celtic, bluegrass, Americana and rock traditions into what the group calls Ether-Electrified Porch Music, the Virginia quintet’s songs of life, love, heartbreak and landscape are independently written, recorded and produced from their own studio in Richmond.

After 5 years of intense touring, Carbon Leaf reduced their 2016 road schedule to focus on some lingering projects, including the release of Nothing Rhymes With Woman, the third and final re-recorded album originally released through their formal record label. Along with the completing new versions of Indian Summer (2004) and Love Loss Hope Repeat (2006), the band’s goal of regaining 100% ownership of their music catalogue was achieved.

The band will be performing in 2017 behind a U.S. tour and a collection of new songs inspired by acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bass, drums, cello, banjo, penny whistle, pedal steel, accordion and rich vocal harmonies.

Kat Myers wandered the globe solo for half a year before she found herself in Los Angeles on an extended layover in late 2012 and decided to stay. She was unemployed and unsure of the future but had a notebook full of tunes. The Ohio native began playing solo gigs around town and quickly gained a local following with her quick-witted and sincere songs.

Myers’ started searching for a band, which eventually led her to drummer Johnny Elkins. At the time Elkins’ own band, Ivory Deville, was holding auditions for a back-up singer. Though Myers did not get the spot, she and Elkins immediately hit it off. They started booking shows as a two-piece all over southern California and along the way met guitarist Elliott Beenk.

With the band in place, 2015 marked a whirlwind of a year for the trio. They have since toured along the west coast and played Echo Park Rising, Make Music Pasadena and Sofar Sounds. The band has also been featured on sites including Jam In The Van, Free Bike Valet, and Badass Bands Blog.

Though it is early into what will undoubtedly be a long and illustrious career, Kat Myers & The Buzzards are already earning themselves a reputation as a “bona fide rock ‘n’ roll band…[that] concocts a soulful blend of solid rhythms as if summoned from the dust on a vinyl crate of classic rock.” (Free Bike Valet) Myers’ roots in classic rock can be clearly heard in the EP’s rollicking melodies, while her tongue-in-cheek lyrics point to her punk influences.

With a new album in the works and more shows on the horizon, Kat Myers & The Buzzards are sure to continue capturing ears and hearts with their wit and charm.
