Following the enormous success of his bands The Libertines (alongside the iconic Pete Doherty) and Dirty Pretty Things, Carl Barât has gone solo and will be embarking on a UK tour this April. His tour will take in Birmingham, London, Manchester and Oxford where he will be showcasing material from his debut album 'Carl Barât'.
As the more private member of The Libertines, Carl has managed to carve an impressive music career by not letting personal troubles get in the way of his job. He shows his real musical education with lyrics that are peppered with dramatic and poetic musings on life, in an infectious album unlike anything he has done before. He proves he can do solo just as well as he can do the band thing: standing alone as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. He is a passionate musician who wants critical acclaim for his talents, not because he wants the fame. From a personal viewpoint, this makes him very endearing and likeable, his music is what I want to listen to, not publicity-hungry statements to get him in the press.
It is vastly apparent that he is a born musician and performer who will not back down to pressure from those who believe the best of Carl is over. Following the rollercoaster of a journey with the Libertines, who became more well-known for their public feuds than for their musical ability, Carl has mellowed and now let's his music do the talking. He has a strong work ethic with a magnificent résumé that is brimming with his musical achievements as well as his recent foray into writing and acting.
