Carter Tanton's Freeclouds is arguably the long overdue follow-up to his former band Tulsa's 2007 EP I Was Submerged. Tulsa spent two years writing and recording their follow-up to the EP, but it was never released due to label and legal struggles. Discouraged, the band broke up and Carter focused his energy on his role in as a guitar player in Marissa Nadler's band, touring extensively and eventually recording and arranging parts for her recently released self-titled record. His experience working on Nadler's record ultimately served as the catalyst that inspired him to record Freeclouds. In addition to recording and co-writing one song on Marissa Nadler's well-received 2011 album, Carter has recorded albums by George Lewis Jr (Twin Shadow) and Drug Rug among others. He's currently a member of Lower Dens.
