Shayne P Carter

Bio

Shayne P Carter (born in Dunedin, New Zealand) is a musician best known for leading Straitjacket Fits from 1986–1994, and as the only permanent member of Dimmer (1995–2012). He currently operates under his own name.

Accolades Carter has earned during his career include membership of the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame, the New Zealand Herald Legacy Award (both earned with Straitjacket Fits at the 2008 New Zealand Music Awards), and New Zealand Music Awards for Best Group and Best Rock Album (Dimmer, 2004).

At the same time as calling an end to Dimmer in 2012, Carter described a new plan to learn piano, and record an album with it as the main instrument. Piano became part of his live shows in 2014, and in August that year he launched a crowdfunding campaign for "a new album in its final stages of production" - written entirely on piano and recorded ("free of record company backing") with Gary Sullivan and other guests. The successful campaign had a goal of $8,000 and raised over $9,500.

Performing and recording as Shayne P Carter, he announced the album name Offsider in 2015. The first music released from Offsider came out more than a year later, in June 2016, when the song We Will Rise Again appeared as a digital download.
