Steve Carter

I taught guitar at Berklee College of Music for 25 years. I am currently performing around New England. My specialty is solo jazz guitar, but I also perform with duos and trios. I'm active as a teacher and clinician.
Gear

Aria Diamonds guitar; Traynor Darkhorse amp w/ Eminence Delta Pro 12A speaker, MojoTone cab. MXR preamp.

Reviews of Steve's first solo CD, Act One:

A sublime solo guitar disc that highlights Carter's warm sound and thoughtful solo work on an extended collection of standards. Carter, who's been heard at local venues such as the Crescent City Bistro in Dover, is a fluid player with a keen sense of melodic development that doesn't succumb to virtuoso pyrotechnics. Tunes range from Billie Holiday's “God Bless the Child” to Herbie Hancock's “Dolphin Dance” to Jobim's “Once I Loved.” A fine set by an equally fine musician.

- Alan Chase, “Jazz Universe”, The Wire, New Hampshire

His guitar skills are impeccable, and he makes listening to solo guitar enjoyable...this guy's solo guitar is worth a listen
