Caroline Glaser was your typical first year college student, performing isolated open mic nights at her local coffee shops and making videos on her YouTube page, when she auditioned for season 4 of NBC’s hit TV show “The Voice.” The judges were overwhelmed with affection, and the world watching was smitten. Adam Levine from Maroon 5 described Caroline's voice as "ethereal, magic and wonderful." Usher renamed himself “Gusher.” Ultimately, Caroline didn’t win the highly-rated vocal competition, but she made a real connection with an instant fanbase begging for more. Caroline will be the first to admit she is only a handful of steps into a long uphill road ahead, but is embracing this exciting opportunity to further develop as an "indie-folk" artist. The singer-songwriter is ever so grateful for the fans who encourage her along the way, and ecstatic to start playing and releasing music for them.
Jared Bartman is a songwriter, composer, and bandleader based in Peoria, IL. Merging genres to create a sound that is all his own, Bartman combines indie, American folk, Eastern European, and afro-Cuban music with classical arrangements, occasionally returning to his rock and roll roots. Today, Bartman's live shows span from solo performances to large ensemble performances featuring vocal harmonies, string quartet, bass, and percussion accompaniment that recreates the vivid sonic pictures captured in his studio recordings. Sharing the stage with artists like John Vanderslice, Richard Buckner, and Night Beds has allowed Bartman to perform for audiences that value a richer, raw sound driven by poetic lyricism. A new full-length record, Misery Makes Strange Bedfellows, was released in fall of 2013.
