Carlin Tripp is a laid back folk rocker drawing from a life spent roaming this great country, seeking out rare experiences and making new friends along the way. Now settled in Boston, he devotes his time to being a stay at home dad and touring musician. His songs reflect on love lost, love found and the trials and joys we all face in our day to day existence. He has been compared to a young Paul Simon for his intimate lyrics and his gripping stage presence.
Tripp has played some of Massachusetts premier venues, opening for Vance Gilbert, Rik Emmett, and Jason Myles Goss. He was the winner of the first annual Spire Open Mic Challenge (2015) and has been nominated for awards such as "Breakthrough Artist of the Year", “Male Performer of the Year” and “Album of the Year” by Limelight Music Awards (2015).
Tripp will release his new EP, “The Shape of the Island,” recorded at the Great North Sound Society, in April 2018.
