Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Doc Carter
Since bursting onto the music scene with his debut EP, “Blue Eyes” in 2017, Texas singer-
songwriter Doc Carter has gone on to generate a ton of attention over the years, with several of
his releases capturing 30,000 plays or more on streaming platforms, and over 20,000 monthly
listeners on Spotify alone.
After beginning his recording career with longtime friend and producer Matt Grundy (Donavon
Frankenreiter’s band), Doc has since performed at several legendary venues in Texas and
beyond with his songs that transcend Americana, Country and Blues/Rock genres, evolving into
a sound that is quintessentially Doc’s.
In 2017, Carter was inducted into the Corpus Christi Songwriters (CCSW) Hall of Fame, after
sweeping every songwriting contest the previous year. Since, he’s become an integral member
of the CCSW board, and helped spearhead the annual Corpus Christi Songwriters Festival.
When he’s not songwriting or performing, Carter is an emergency physician, surfer, kite surfer,
and — most importantly — a husband and father of four. Currently, Carter is in the process of releasing his first full-length LP, “High Tide For Low Times” — due out later this year under his own Blowing Sand Records. Influences: Bob Dylan, Beatles, John Prine, Neil Young, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Big Bill Broonzy, Doc Watson, Curly Putman and too many others to mention.
