Carbon Handshake On "Live From Studio 5!"

Celebrating the Carbon Unit

By Dewglass
It amazes me to find a band that has been working the craft for ten years and they are in their 20s.
I am sooooo jealous and astonished at the songwriting, versatility and harmonies of Carbon Handshake.
As a human being with 99% of the mass of the human body made up of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus, we are carbon units who definitely had our hands shook.

Due to the versatility of the musicians, there were a lot of instrument changes going on, which made for a very unique sound.  I found myself greedily anticipating the next song.

Carbon Handshake is: Joe McNeill, Mack Scott, Andy Dean, Eric Cafferty, Andy Hanna and Clancy Brady

The instrumentation consisted of Keyboards, Guitars, both electric and acoustic, glockenspiel, and pocket a piano.
Their versatility brings a full rich sound to their performance.
Being as young as they are, I only see an expansion of their form.

As they pass the artistry around the group to evolve their sound, look for them to forge a path to new and unexpected places.  The bottom line is did you enjoy the music, the story, the feeling?  For me, the answer was an emphatic yes.
