Bubblebrain’s Hot Picks #1 Carl and the Converted

Announcing a series of Bubblebrain’s Hot Picks, our serendipitous discoveries of musical talent across the stylistic spectrum in and around St Helier.

First up we have Carl and the Converted, a trio with a full songbook of vintage rock ‘n’ roll and the easy swinging feel of a 1950s house band at Sun Studio.
 

 

Carl Ibbet – guitar/vox
Chris De La Cloche – drums
Chris Talbot – bass

Audio recorded and mastered by Gary Law
Filmed and edited by Chris Almond

Good sounding trio! Very tight and energetic.Lance Eads

 

Twelve songs from the band were recorded that evening, the six songs featured in the video and another six from later in the set, capturing a relaxed atmosphere in warm, grainy detail with the musicians hitting their stride. All are available to stream and download from Logamp.
