ABOUT THE BAND

Where the journey began...

In late 2014, Anthony Ives (Ant) met Andrew Rickard at an ‘open mic’ music evening at the Fyshwick Tavern.  This unlikely meeting in an unlikely locale gave birth to a musical collaboration between the two that continues to this day; it was the beginning of what we know today as Carnival Road.

The band today...

In 2016, Jack Barnard and Christopher Pearson joined Ant and Andrew on Carnival Road. From the moment the four combined, they have enjoyed a musical synergy that has culminated in their debut album of original songs, the self-titled Carnival Road. The lads are all experienced musicians, and together have a long-standing comradery, with well over 40 years in the industry collectively.  

 

Our sound...

If you ask us to describe our sound, we’ll often say “It’s folk rock with an edge” …that keeps it simple, even though there are many musical elements to any one track that we write and perform.

Join us on the road...

After two and half years of great fun, music and some dedication to our craft, Carnival Road hope you enjoy the fruits of our fun, now recorded for your listening pleasure on our debut self-titled album.

Love and Best Wishes,
Ant 🐜 for Carnival Road 🎪
