Carter James


hi i’m carter i’m a 19 year old singer, songwriter, and producer from boston massachusetts.

i’m an independent artist i write, record, and produce all of my own music in my bedroom

you’re probably wondering how i ended up here

i started writing and producing music when i was 10 while living in detroit with my family. i released my first song “Parallel Universe” in 2016. thanks to an incredible television show called SKAM, it kinda went viral in Norway.

in 2017 i released a song called “Say You’ll Stay” which kinda changed my life. within a year it reached 500,000 streams and i could not be more grateful people found comfort in my sounds and stories. since then i’ve been trying to figure out my sound.

i’m self taught on piano so most of my music is sad songs or ballads, but my heart is in electronic music.

i love vintage synths and dream pop, so i’ve being trying to find a way to merge the two !! expect electronic ballads !!

my biggest influences include artists like Owl City, Ellie Goulding, The 1975, and The Japanese House

i would describe my sound as “sad synthpop”

some may say dreampop, indiepop, dark pop, or ambient pop

most of my music is perfect for a late night drive or a relaxing day in the rain.

if you like space or the ocean you get bonus points
