I Shaun Carr "Ting" was born in Framingham MA on December 21, 1979. My parents names are Robert and Marilyn. I was born second out of 3 children. We grew up on the poor side of Wellesley, MA. Yes, there is a poor side.

I got my first taste of music while attending Fisk Elementary School singing in chorus and playing the recorder in the 3rd grade. This was the start of my music comprehension. Messing around with a little cheep keyboard I got one Christmas, I figured out that the black keys on the keyboard matched the notes on the recorder. Because they were the same I was able to take and convert the songs that he had learned on the recorder and play them on the piano. In the 4th grade I took piano lessons from a friend named Todd Stevens for about 5 weeks. They were the only formal piano lessons I ever had. I sang in the church and schools chorus witch is what made me grow to love singing.

I composed my first song when I was 14 at my great cousin Roddys house. It was then that I knew that I really wanted to write music.

Growing up I was also interested in art such as drawing, painting and being creative with anything I could find. This is why I studied graphic communications at a tech school in Lexington, Massachusetts called Minuteman Technical High School. While attending this school I found out whom Enya was through a teacher named Mr. Garry. As a kid had heard a song called Orinoco Flow. I was 8 years old at that time. I had no idea that it was sung by Enya until I studied music lyrics in his English class. I knew then that I wanted to create that style of music.
August of 1999 I had back surgery, which was the detour in my life where I picked up writing my own music. Having that surgery caused me to lose my job at McDonalds and get rehired at Papa Gino’s. This is where I met Andrew Nelson. Andrew is a very talented man who worked in the Guitar Center at that same mall. He used to come in for food all the time. Andy and I started talking one day about writing original music in a program called Acid DJ. The program was $ 40 so I bought it that week. With in 4 weeks I had my first 3 songs written and I decided to name my band what my nickname was at the time Ting.

After a few years I ended up writing some songs for Mass Interactions witch they used on an educational film series for inner city kids. I also did sound beds for a few car commercials and a popular rock station in Boston called WAAF. After producing my first personal album "Welcome to Tings World" I started seeing a woman I met online named Theresa who I had befriended nine months earlier. I wrote a song called "Theresa This Ones For You" on my second CD "Ode To Franklin Chris". This song became the music to "True Love" which was a hit off my fourth album "Listen Now Hear Me". This song was inspired by the intense feelings I had for her when we first started dating. A few months after the music was written Theresa came to me and told me about a poem she wrote about her feeling towards me. I took that poem and used it as the 1st verse of the song and then continued to write 2 more. Because Theresa wrote the poem I decided she should be the one to perform the lyrics with her beautiful voice. "Listen Now Here Me" took over a year for me to complete. It sold many copies.
In-between those two albums I created a third album titled "Hello?" this was my second attempt to create a techno CD, "Welcome to Tings World" Being the first. The only claim to fame that this CD brought me was a remix I did for John Osterland. He was a DJ on WAAF in Boston. The song I remixed was titled Not Again. It was a mix with all the samples John used fore his show. It was played every Friday to kick off the weekend until he left the station. It is available to download from on my discography page.

The CD "The Sound Within" was the last CD I used 90% Acid loops. It was the first continuous album I had ever created. It was a little more ambient then the last and it has more singing (chants) as well. I played a recorder and a cheap wooden flute in some of the songs, which was also a first.

I was sick of using loops that thousands of people around the world had already used in their songs. So I upgraded my studio with a Triton LE this allowed my creativity to run wild. Now that I had the keyboard I had more control over the sounds. This gave my songs more of a personal feel. It was during the production of the next CD “Quiet Whisper of Sadness” that I decided to change the name of my band Ting to Tranquil In Nature’s Grace t.i.n.g. The name changed because I felt the music needed a name that described what it truly was.

Each of my past releases is a good example of how I have morphed into what I would say is my best work ever “Walk With Trees”. Still in production this 2-disk set has finally brought together all the elements of music styles that I love. These styles include Rock, World, New Age, Techno, Celtic, Classical, and Hip-Ho
