NYC-based singer/songwriter Carl Creighton operates with an aloof and mysterious air justified by his considerable talents displayed on his recent debut The World is a Beautiful Place.

The record is a collection of classic songwriting efforts with simply assumed structures and melody always at the forefront. However, in under 30 minutes the album creates a complex miniature world where Creighton's characters – often filled with aching-desire and self-doubt – are rendered with a deft sense of humor and restraint. Creighton employs that same restraint consistently, creating a hushed production clouded in vintage reverb that acts as a nurturing back drop for his gently whispered vocal harmonies reminiscent of Simon and Garfunkel.
