About Soul Doctor:


"Soul Doctor takes you into the mind of an amazingly talented artist."                                

IndiePulse Music


"...confirming Carpenter as one of the most complete and versatile artists of the Blues, Soul and Blues/Rock contemporary music scene."

Gio Pilato,


Soul Doctor is a celebration of great, perfectly executed rock and blues. It's a beacon of light on a mostly dark and dreary musical landscape. It will restore your faith in decent, honest music, played by dedicated, talented musicians. The Soul Doctor has got the cure for your musical maladies.

The Real Music Observer for Rock and Blues Reviews


This is a great album to play if you’re looking for an instant mood boost. It’s hard to remain in a foul mood when you hear this collection of songs.
