New Bohemians keyboard player, Carter Albrecht shot dead

According to reports, Carter Albrecht, of the New Bohemians, was shot to death, yesterday:

Jeffrey Carter Albrecht, a keyboard player for the band Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, was shot to death early Monday while trying to kick in the door of his girlfriend’s neighbor, police said.

The neighbor believed a burglar was trying to break in and fired a shot through the door around 4 a.m., Dallas police spokesman Sgt. Gil Cerda said.

Albrecht, 34, died at the scene. It was not clear why Albrecht went to the house and the case is under investigation. No arrests have been made.

Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians became famous with the song, “What I Am”. Carter’s blog, only says that he had been with the band since 1999, and not much else.

I really liked their music, it’s a shame that he had to pass so violently.
