“Bill Carter has an audacious knack for a roadhouse hook and a wicked tongue for lyrics, making music that is at once powerful, sly, intelligent and rocking. Carter is one of the most successful, if not the best singer-songwriter in Austin.” Margaret Moser – Austin Chronicle

“Simply put, no one writes songs like this man.” Stu Gilbert, MVRemix
“Unknown is a resounding collection of hard-nosed rock and blues arrangements with a country sensibility and features Carter on ten instruments, including bongos, bass. Carter”s voice is that of a true troubadour, one who speaks it like he’s lived it. Carter deserves to be up there with international song-writing royalty.” Glide Magazine
