“Beautiful vocals, great playing, spectacular material!” Patriot Ledger

Carlin Tripp - Born Carlin Hosmer Tripp on the small island of Nantucket, he spent the first years of his life breathing the salty air, exploring the island, and listening to records with his mom.

After moving back to the mainland, he grew up in Westport, MA but always dreamed of where he could live next.

He attended Northeastern University in Boston but soon transferred to the College of Santa Fe to pursue a degree in art.

It was there, in the land of enchantment, that Tripp found his voice and budding style as a folk/americana songwriter.

After a year or two, he grew restless and took off – living, writing and performing in places as diverse as Texas, Colorado, Prescott, Utah, Michigan, and Virginia.

Tripp eventually returned to the Northeast, and in 2018, released The Shape of the Island, produced by his good friend and collaborator Jay Psaros, to critical acclaim.

The album garnered the attention of Reid Genauer who invited Tripp to open for Strangefolk at the Paradise Rock Club.

He is currently working remotely with producer Mickelson in California on new music to be released in 2022.
