“Why should I do one thing, when I can do everything?” These words once came out of the Michael Carpenter’s young, optimistic mouth. Little did the multi-instrumentalist, producer-engineer, singer- songwriter know how much ground he’d cover. His first band at 14. His first recording sessions at 16. His first tours at 20. His first recording studio at 24. His first failed business venture at 26. His debut album at 32, and then more than an album a year either as a solo artist, or in one of his bands or side projects, since.
