Carter Felker’s songwriting is the embodiment of simplicity. Like the hammer and the nail, the tongue and groove or the wheel and its roll - the stringent and punchy use of words alongside outstanding fingerpicking are as effective as they are memorable. Stories of hometown lore, love lost and bitter relationships steeped with a deep sense of humor are Felker’s modus operandi. The ability to tell a story we all know, inside parameters we forget exist.
Working off of the success of his 2016 debut album Everyday Life, Felker put himself on the map in Western Canada. Sharing stages with Sam Outlaw, Valdy and Del Barber as well as playing regional festivals (Calgary Folk Festival, Blockheater, Tongue On The Post). Felker’s songwriting has been picked up on by other roots artists during the six years since he first arrived on the scene. Del Barber added Felker’s original tune “Everyday Life” to his Juno nominated 2019 album “Easy Keeper” and Alberta based country artist Shaela Miller sings “Good Woman” on her latest LP “Big Hair Small City” (2021).
