Rising up out of the San Fernando Valley, Carter Ace initially incited waves through the culture with “If It Don’t Work” in 2017. A year later, he served up “I Think I’m Normal” with production by Isom Innis of Foster The People. It notably eclipsed 3.4 million Spotify streams as he buzzed to the forefront of the conversation with features in GQ and Flaunt. Joe Jonas heard his music and immediately reached out, signing him to Let’s Get It Records in conjunction with Republic Records.
Now, Carter formally introduces himself with much more music to come. Get ready!
