Mississippi Gabe Carter was born in South Bend, Indiana. He was raised in rural Southwest Michigan. As a young man Carter saw a guitarist by the name of Jack Owens — of Bentonia, Mississippi — in a documentary that had been rented on video from the local public library. Carter, from that point on, was deeply influenced by the music of Owens; and the school of music that is native to the Bentonia region of Mississippi. Today, Carter‘s blues has remained firmly rooted in the blues tradition and style of Bentonia; and has grown into something completely original and unique to the genre.
