REVIEW: Tyler Carter – ‘Leave Your Love’ EP

Artist: Tyler Carter
Album: Leave Your Love EP
Label: Rise Records

Demand returned following the rise of Carter’s latest project, Issues, and now we’re kicking off 2015 with a new collection of solo tracks that prove Carter could easily have an entirely different career in music.

James Shotwell is the founder of Under The Gun Review. He loves writing about music and movies
