Raygun Carver aka singer/songwriter Michael Soiseth hails from the fog enshrouded coast of the Pacific Northwest. His unique approach to Americana music has been hailed as 'Urban Americana Noir', incorporating elements of Country, Brit Pop, Jazz, and Folk. His first full length release, the aptly titled ‘Moon Fields Yawning’ is available on Spotify and other streaming services.
In November of 2021, the first single from his upcoming record ‘Bad Thing’ was unleashed and features Phil Madera (Emmylou Harris, Alison Krause, Shawn Mullins) on piano and Ryan Svendsen (Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato) on trumpet. The album contains Raygun’s most inspired material to date, ranging from traditional Nashville country to New Orleans infused pop. The title track, ‘Bad Thing’ is streaming now on Spotify and other online music services.
Currently Raygun Carver is recording new material for his third release. The as yet untitled album is heavily influenced by the gypsy style jazz of the 20's and 30's mixed with a sense of vaudeville and the carnival sideshows of old.
