Arzate is one hell of a songwriter.

The heart-warming and political poignancy of Ziggy Marley and Michael Franti, with a southwestern bent.

Hailing from the dusty deserts of Tucson, AZ, singer, songwriter & family man Carlos Arzate tucks elements of folk, rock, soul & R&B into the pockets of his eclectic musical vest. Flanked by some of Arizona's finest musicians, a collective known as The Kind Souls, and producer Ryan Alfred (Sweet Ghosts, Ryanhood), Arzate released a debut EP called Fly Away on Funzalo Records in 2013. Fly Away garnered local critical acclaim and steady airplay on independent radio stations around Arizona. His full-length follow up, entitled Got Me Wrong, was released to Bandcamp September of 2015.
