Carrier's father and grandfather both played zydeco music, and his cousins recorded under the name The Carrier Brothers. He was taught to play accordion by his father, Roy Carrier Sr., and played with his father's band at age 12, first on accordion and then on drums. He played drums with Terrance Simien from 1986 until 1989, then formed a group of his own with his brothers Troy and Kevin.
Carrier's third album, 1993's Dance All Night, was his biggest success.
Carrier has made guest appearances on albums by Tab Benoit - Live: Swampland Jam, Doug Kershaw - Cajun Sweet Home Louisiana, Calvin Owens - Stop Lying in My Face and Jimmy Thackery - Switching Gears.
Carrier's 2010 release Zydeco Junkie won the Grammy in the category Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album.
