Ralph Carney is co-leader of a brassy combo called The Cottontails and ultimately led to the formation of the Serious Jass Project.
Ralph Carney first shimmied his way into the public consciousness in the mid-‘70s as an integral part of Tin Huey – one of the edgier proponents of a Northeast Ohio scene that also spawned Devo and Pere Ubu.
In the intervening years, his particular brand of twisted swing has invigorated the work of artists as varied as Tom Waits, Frank Black, The B-52’s and The Black Keys – the acclaimed duo co-founded by his nephew, Patrick Carney. But it’s on his own releases that Ralph’s true personality – a winning combination of rapier intellect and barroom savvy – really shines through.
