Past Shows (3)
Carpetriders is a 4-piece grungy psychedelic classic rock band from Langley, B.C. that is made up of different combinations of friends jamming together. Eventually ending up with Dwayne Morgan (Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Adam McMorris (Bass, Percussion, Kazoo!, Vocals), James Tungate (Guitar, Vocals) and Eddie Weber (Drums, Percussion, Vocals), is a bit of a no-brainer in hindsight. The threads have been there for years, but it wasn't until recently that they've tightened up.
For their first live show in May 2013, they had to hone the band jams into a setlist, further pushing them to develop together as a team and prep themselves for the recording that was to come. While Dwayne attended Nimbus School Of Recording Arts in Vancouver, they used the access to studio time to record their first EP, titled simply as the "Carpetriders EP". It was released in December 2013 and consists of the first 3 songs they wrote together as a band. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts and personal lives led to Carpetriders taking an unwanted break shortly after the release of the EP.
With a new season comes the renewed vigour of a band itching to get back at it, and getting back at it they are. Carpetriders are in the process of recording their second EP, tentatively titled "Strange Ways". Dwayne, fresh from his assistant position with Winston Hauschild at Fader Mountain Studios, once again takes the production helm and is sonically taking it to the next level from the first EP.
The best is yet to come!
