Leroy Carr (March 27, 1905 – April 29, 1935) was an American blues singer, songwriter and pianist who developed a laid-back, crooning technique and whose popularity and style influenced such artists as Nat King Cole and Ray Charles. He first became famous for "How Long, How Long Blues", released by Vocalion Records in 1928. Carr was born in Nashville, Tennessee, and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. His recording career was cut short by his early death, but he produced a large body of work
