Praise for Nothing to Lose:
Lloyd's got an exceptional voice & a ton of songwriting talent - between his own organic self-taught instincts and the immaculate amount of character & tone he sings with, not only will he impress your ears right off the bat with "Nothing To Lose," but he'll go on to prove that bringing his A-game when the studio lights come on & it's time to record, comes completely naturally to him throughout this solid lineup of songs. Jeremy, Sleeping Bag Studios
There's no doubt that the Georgian songster has natural affluence for captivating his audience with his lyrical prowess. BuzzMusic
For a full-length album that's been 30 years in the making, Carter makes his debut to audiences with style. The uncompromising mixture of old school and new school creates a record that's as dynamic as the artist who made it happen. Nothing to Lose is the storybook record that every listener, both young and old, can relate to. If Carter sought to prove anything it's that "you're never too old to follow your dream and what you love doing for others to see. Trenton Luber, Roots
Reigning from a small town in Georgia, Lloyd
Carter found his passion for music at a young age. Brought up in a musical family, he was surrounded by an eclectic array of sounds. His mother managed two different radio stations, while his father's side of the family had a gospel quartet consisting of Lloyd's grandfather, aunts and uncles. "The Carters" would travel around the country singing at small churches.
In high school, Lloyd
knew he was destined to be a musician. He taught himself how to play the drums, keyboard and guitar, and began focusing more and more on his songwriting. Heavily influenced by artists like Keith Whitley, Steve Perry, Kenny Rogers
and Conway Twitty, Lloyd
gravitates towards songs that spoke to his emotions. "My favorite songwriter is one who can tell a story," he explains. "There's nothing like painting a picture with words - that's one of the magical things that I love most about music."
With 30+ years of stories scribbled in a notebook, Lloyd
had the privilege of recording his track "It's Friday Night" with his good friend Colt Ford. A lover of traditional country music and all things romance, Lloyd
has been busy working on his latest project - his newly released album called "Nothing to Lose," which blends classic country style with some newer elements.
"My writing partners, Gary DiBenedetto and Henry McGill, and I have been in the music industry a number of years and have faced many battles. There's a lot of heartache in the music business, but there's also a lot of joy. This album encompasses both aspects."
When he's not writing music or performing, you can find Lloyd
and his family out on their boat or at their favorite local barbecue joint. "I would love it if people hear my music and say You know, that Lloyd
is an alright singer/songwriter, but he seems like a good ole dude."
