Carson, a singer/songwriter from Washington State. This handsome young man with his shinny blond hair will certainly entertain you. When he performs, he will do his very best to make sure, you have a smile on your face when the performance is over. Carson is a delight to watch and listen to. He handles himself like a pro, and at only nine years old.
Carson started out at a ripe old age of four, playing a Toy`s R Us guitar. His parents noticed that he could keep good rhythm. At his 5th birthday he received a three quarter guitar and soon began private lessons. He is currently taking lessons at the CDA Rock school from Kent Nelson. He has picked up on it so well that he is now teaching his dad. Soon after Carson began playing guitar, he discovered that it was more fun to sing along as he played, and he has not stopped. He has had an orthopedic steal bar put in the roof of his mouth, which is temporary, but is has not slowed him down one bit. At his first Christmas recital, he was the only one who sang and played, which made his performance more enjoyable to listen to. Carson`s voice is getting better and better and continues to expand his range.
Every year Carson`s school and church would have talent shows. At age five Carson was asked to participate and was the only kindergarten asked to perform. He dressed as Elvis and performed Hound Dog. He was a big hit at both, and his performance is still talked about today. This past October 2010, Carson opened for Sammy Eubanks at the Spokane Knitting Factory, this is one of the biggest concert stages in Spokane. This was exciting for Carson, Sammy opens for some of the biggest names in country music. Sammy invited Carson after hearing his original song “Big Mouth Bass” played on KIXZ96.1 radio. Everyone was impressed with this because very few kids get to take the stage here. One of Carson`s most memorable performance was when he got to play for America`s Got Talent. He didn`t make all the way through , but he had a lot of fun doing it. At age six he was invited to play on the country radio station KIXZ96.1, and has been a guest on the radio each year after. DJ Coyote loves Carson and has given him an open invitation to come and play anytime. His last performance on the radio was for the Children`s Miracle Network, to raise money for local hospitals.
Carson has a great way with words when it comes to songwriting. He has already three originals, “My Dog Buddy”, “Big Mouth Bass”, and “Motocross High”. His talent for writing has not gone unnoticed, he was the winner for the 2010 August Colgate Country Showdown songwriting contest. When he writes, he writes about his true loves, his dog, fishing, and motocross, things of this nature. He was invited to take a college songwriting class when he was eight. He worked on “Big Mouth Bass” during this class. “Motocross High” was inspired by his love of racing motorcycles.
Carson has many people from which he gets his inspiration from, but one of his biggest inspiration is Keith Urban. When he was four he would stand in front of the TV watching the CMA`s. Once he said, “Mom when I grow up I am going to learn to jam on my guitar like Keith Urban”. He learned some Keith Urban songs and has performed them in competitions on the radio. He has also gotten two guitars signed by Keith and the privilege of meeting him in 2009.
Carson believes his talent is a gift from God. He wants his music to bring joy to others. How ever he is not wrapped up in becoming famous, he says, “it would be nice to make some money”. His mom would like his generation of music to influance people in a postive way. As far as Carson goes, if his music career doesn`t work out then he would like to be a doctor like his dad. Maybe even a doctor by day and a rock star by night.
