    Back in Halifax after a hugely successful tour of the U.S. with Crash Test Dummies, Carleton Stone returns to The Carleton to celebrate the release of his new album, Paper Cut, on Friday, December 9th. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $25 + HST.

    Carleton Stone’s first release from his 2022 recording, Paper Cut, is one for the ages, co-written with longtime collaborators Breagh Mackinnon and Dylan Guthro. Envisioning a love that could span centuries, Stone laments the fleeting nature of transcendent connection over the sweeping pedal steel and melancholy strings of Ice Age. But he finds room for uplift, too—the song’s mood takes its devotional turn as Stone recognizes this grand kind of love is special because it can’t last forever. At least not literally, anyway, save for a natural disaster. “I can’t make you stay,” he sings. “So I’m praying for an ice age.”

    Carleton took a break from his award-winning solo career when he became a founding member of Port Cities.  The band released music and successfully toured nonstop for five years before the world ground to a halt.  During lockdown, Carleton worked to hone his skills as a producer and in 2021, Carleton produced Willie Stratton’s Drugstore Dreamin’ (2022) along with his own record.

    An outstanding writer, Carleton has written songs for and with such diverse artists as Donovan Woods, Classified featuring Snoop Dogg, Ria Mae, Bobby Bazini, and Neon Dreams. Carleton has three solo albums to his credit and has toured internationally for the better part of the last decade.
