Chris Carpenter 

When: Thu., March 12 2015
Singer-songwriter Chris Carpenter says he’s “grown up” with music. He first took piano lessons and then started playing guitar, eventually drifting into a few garage rock bands that played everything from Dave Matthews to Alice in Chains. He originally didn’t think he would attend college but eventually enrolled in the Belmont University music program. He’s released four CDs, and VH1.com, CMT.com and MTV.com have played his music videos; his songs have been featured in The Young and the Restless, Men of a Certain Age and a Kraft Foods commercial. He’s performed on 43 regional TV shows all over the U.S. and Canada. He uses the term “songwriter rock” to describe his music. “I coined that phrase not long ago,” says Carpenter, who just performed at the ASCAP Show at the Sundance Film Festival. “It’s very pop oriented. I know I’m a little bit of the love-song guy. Pop is just so broad. Everything could be considered pop these days. Mine has a little dirt on the tires. It’s the diet soda of rock.” You can sample the soda at 6 tonight at the downtown Renaissance Hotel. It’s free. (Jeff Niesel)
