Timothy Hill (trumpet/percussion) and Ozzie Ozugurlu (guitars) formed the The Carryons in 2014. The Philadelphia-based ensemble performs original music inspired by Timothy's and Ozzie's experiences growing up in Athens, Greece and Ankara, Turkey respectively as well as by their time living in the US.
The Carryons' songs evoke scenes from the Mediterranean—Spanish melodies, Turkish rhythms, Greek lyrics—while incorporating jazzy voicings, improvisation, and familiar song structures. Use of loops and percussion creates a sound that ranges from plaintive and minimalistic to full, complex, and brassy. Their music reflects the band's own travels between East and West, a sense of never fully belonging to one place and of building a bridge between two very different worlds.
