Rip Carson

Rip Carson singer/songwriter/guitarist of epic proportion...Slinger of what has come to be known as " Pop-a-billy". Classic 50's  60's rockabilly, 80's pop rock like the Smiths and Cure mixed with modern tones and the sonic  power of acts like The Arctic Monkeys, ....They don't call him Rip for nothing. This music of Rip Carson comes from a pure place planted deep in Wheeling West Virginia and defiled by the spoils of Souther California.
