Bandleader, accordion player, and singer Carrier comes from a long line of distinguished musicians (he’s the nephew of Roy Carrier and cousin of Troy “Dikki Du” and Chubby Carrier, to name just a few), a family where zydeco music was a pastime for holidays and family gatherings. He embodies both tradition and a unique style that is infused with his blues and R&B influences.

Growing up in Church Point, Louisiana, in the time when rap music was gaining popularity, Carrier’s friends would laugh when he and his brother Joseph practiced their zydeco music. In 1988, his first band, Dwight Carrier and Zydeco Rockers was created, with Dwight playing accordion and Joseph on drums. When he was just 14, Dwight released his first album entitled “My Baby Left Me,” which earned him local status. In 1991 Dwight was asked to join the Creole Zydeco Snap Band, headed by Creole and blues musician Warren Ceasar. Dwight became the group’s accordionist and traveled extensively around the world for several years, including multiple appearances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. After a break from music, Carrier returned to the family business of zydeco in 2008, forming his band Black Cat and the Zydeco Ro Doggs. They have taken their pumping style of music to both coasts and the Midwest as well as throughout Louisiana.
