About Jody Carroll

Jody Carroll

"Jody Carroll does not play the blues so much as he inhabits them, with a definite Americana tinge. His dark and haunting tales embody roots music to its fullest.."

Amos Perrine - No Depression 2021

"You have to wonder if he didn't strike the same deal as delta shaman Robert Johnson.."
The Oregonian, Portland Oregon
