Looking Around is the 2014 album by Atlanta, Georgia based indie adult alternative pop/rock artist Tom Carter. Listening to this album I notice the sounds of the 60’s mix with the sound of artists such as R.E.M. and other artists of that era. This great album starts of with a thumping bass sound into the song You Go!, then continues in such other tracks as Lost In This World, Remember The Days, Down But Not Out, Overdrive and much more. Tom plays and composes everything and only needs the help of a drummer such as Steve Saunders and Pete Freeman and in some songs the choirs and the harmonica of Rob Agocs.
