Carman, an Italian American, born in Trenton New Jersey, spent years in military school and originally set out to be a boxer. In 1976, his life course was changed at an Andrea Crouch concert and he began to write the songs that would forever after change generations of gospel song writers.
Carman defied description and consistently operated outside the box of Christian music with innovating new and fresh ways to present the message. With 35 music videos, he reinvented the genre of the visual arts in Christian music and dance as an art form within the church. His contributions to drama, dance and acting through the arts are historic.
He remains what is best described as a cultural phenomenon and a true American original. Call or text 217-343-4581.
