Soloist Has His Eye on the Job With His Latest Heartfelt EP



Who: Carus, Dave Johnson
Where: Northern Star Hotel
When: Sunday June 23, 2002

FOR Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Carus, writing from the heart is the key to a brilliant track.

The 25-year-old soloist has just released his new EP, The Mind's Eye, offering an eclectic blend of rock, country, pop and folk.

Carus began writing at age 12 and has penned some 300 songs since he first discovered his love for songwriting.

Last year he enjoyed one of biggest times of his career with a hectic tour schedule, including a support slot alongside The John Butler Trio. Carus says the past year has been a roller-coaster ride and that his work as a musician has progressed immensely over the past few years.

'I'm starting to find more of my own style now,' Carus said.

'A lot of my songs are personal and I've been trying to take a few steps back and use more illusions and imagery so people can relate to a song and put themselves into it.'

One of the tracks on the EP, titled Thrown was written in memory of a friend who was killed in a car accident.

'That song is very special to me and I've had it for a long time but I have never really done it any justice, but on this album I think I have.'

Carus will launch his new EP at the Northern Star Hotel on Sunday night when he performs with his Dave Johnson. The pair will perform acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonies.
