2012 album from the critically acclaimed North Carolina Folk-Pop-Rock band. Produced by Rick Rubin and recorded in North Carolina and Malibu, the record follows the group's 2009 breakthrough release and celebrated major label debut, I And Love And You. That album reached #16 on the Billboard Top 200 and received rave notices from press. Blending Bluegrass, Folk and Punk with a Rock 'n' RoII attitude, the quintet, led by brothers Seth and Scott Avett, continues to pen poignant and powerful songs on this new release. The Carpenter includes several of the group's signature harmony-driven acoustic ballads, but the brothers also get boisterous on tunes.
