Since they started in 2010, California-based quintet Dead Winter Carpenters have earned a reputation as one of the hardest-working American outfits going through steadfast touring, heartfelt performances and authentic roots music. Their progressive nature shines through on their latest album, Washoe. The 12-song collection of originals pays tribute to musical influences spanning classic rock, bluegrass, alt-country and rockabilly. With traces of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters blend refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the likes of Jason Isbell, Greensky Bluegrass, and Hard Working Americans. Now the band is working on new material for a possible release in 2018, and they’ll share some of it with Paste in the Studio.
