Carpal Tullar describes both the recording project operated almost exclusively by Chris Tullar of Asheville, NC, and the live band that plays Carpal Tullar songs for the enjoyment of the peoples and for the enjoyment of themselves. Chris has been recording music, basement-style, for many years. Some of his songs are old enough to vote, but those usually don't make the performances.
Chris is joined, on bass, by Rob Heyer, who has played in many Asheville-based bands over the past twenty years and most recently The Gravelys, and John McKinney on drums, who is a multi-instrumentalist, but mostly plays keyboards for local bands and various projects in the area, most recently Station Underground and The Astral Plainsmen.
Carpal Tullar has been played on WNCW, appeared on NPR's All Songs Considered podcast, and even made a musical appearance on Car Talk.
