Open Skies, the new EP by Louisville-based Carl Lord, invites the listener on a journey of ambient tranquility. The ambient synth beds lay ground to chill beats and soothing melodies to create an otherworldly listening experience. This release brings the listener to another world of atmospheric beauty, full of moments of motivation, meditation, and relaxation.

Carl embarked on his musical voyage of discovery at five years of age, guided by a great uncle who was a classically trained, concert pianist. Soon after, he began taking piano lessons and singing in the youth choir at his local church.
Throughout his adolescent and high school years, Carl took part in various talent competitions and piano recitals. As his love for music continued to grow, Carl began playing piano, organ, and keyboards in various local and regional R&B, Pop, Rock, Country, and Gospel bands during and after his graduation from college. Carl has played on numerous albums, film scores, and commercials while performing at the prestigious Kentucky Derby Winner’s Party.
Sharing the stage with such well-known recording artists as Steve Warner, Reba McEntire, Louise Mandrel, and John Anderson, Carl has also recorded with Grammy award winner, the late Lynn Peterzell, whose engineering credits include Giant Records, Clint Black, and the country remake of the Eagles Greatest Hits.
