BUTTERVILLE is a project I've wanted to do for a long time. The name itself comes from Butterville Rd. in New Paltz, NY. Since many of these songs are dreamy, wistful pieces that reflect my experiences from living in Upstate NY, the Title seemed to fit.

I wrote the first sketches for BUTTERVILLE in 2012, and finished most of the songs while listening to demo recordings on long car-rides. Most of the songs started as improvised sessions with drummer Kyle Hutchins, and were later melded into what they are today. These songs were first performed as "Ben Carr and Friends" in 2013. This summer I decided the time had to come to record it myself.

I would like to thank my family, all of my roommates at The Roemhild, Drew of the Drew, Matt Hsiung, Jerry Teters, Allegra Herrera, the Mad Satta crew, and lastly the rest of Butterville for being such amazing friends and musicians.
