Bury Me Standing is a strange intertwining of Balkan folksong, experimental metal, and psychedelic rock. Brian Carpenter is equally drawn to the avant-garde as he is to the old, rural, and gothic.  Together they provide one fantastic night of entertainment!

Bury Me Standing
Bury Me Standing is a strange intertwining of Balkan folksong, experimental metal, and psychedelic rock. Their unique instrumentation includes the Marimba Lumina, electric and upright basses, sintir, acoustic and electric violin, electric guitar, drums, and vocals. The band was co-founded by a Bulgarian marimbist who grew up behind the Iron Curtain listening to American metal (Vessela Stoyanova), and an American prog-rock drummer who later became enamored with Balkan folk music (Nate Greenslit). Its core personnel has evolved to include a Tunisian violinist/vocalist who left the classical world for the avant garde (Yasmine Azaiez), and an American bassist influenced by free jazz (Tony Leva).

"Brian Carpenter's music is like a road map of the U.S. The multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter has cited places like Coney Island and the Florida Panhandle as inspiration."  NPR Fresh Air with Terry Gross

"Carpenter's music finds resonance with the Band's carnival aesthetic via a combination of eclectic instrumentation, vaudeville styles, and narratives about circus and carnival life. There are numerous hints of the early hillbilly and race records collected on Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music. Like Smith, Carpenter is equally drawn to the avant-garde as he is to the old, rural, and gothic. He has interests in free jazz and improvised music, film directing, and radio broadcasting, and seeks ways to connect these interests into a wide vision."  Richard Elliott, Pop Matters

"By carefully orchestrating the styles of small-town America, Carpenter wove together a breathtaking journey into the psyche of a nation as it was beginning to craft an urban landscape of entertainment and desire."  Piero Scaruffi, Best of Rock 2008
