Earl Carter is a Washington, DC based multi-instrumentalist, music producer and contemporary jazz artist whose talent, professionalism, and star-quality has officially put him in the class of “Billboard Recording Artist". In his earlier years, Earl secured a spot as a member of the platinum selling group, Experience Unlimited (commonly known as E.U.), where he recorded music for the soundtrack to “Do The Right Thing", a Spike Lee production and the live music video titled "GoGo Live at the Capital Centre".

During the late nineties, he recorded guitar and bass parts for multiple producers at Daddy's House in NYC for Sean "Diddy" Combs' Bad Boy Entertainment record label.
