Originally from Atlanta, Caroline Lazar is finishing up her junior year of college at Frost School of Music. Music has always been a huge part of her life, with her parents putting her in piano lessons when she was four. Her piano teacher would paint her fingernails different colors to line up with the white keys on the piano.
Since she was 12, Caroline planned to go to brown, study pre-med, become a doctor and live a normal life. Then, at the age of 15, Caroline discovered her love of poetry through reading Sylvia Plath, e.e. Cummings and whatever else she could get her hands on. She started writing poems just for fun, and shortly after she was setting her poems to music.
Caroline’s music is largely influenced by growing up on Nickel Creek and Alison Krauss, as well as getting into indie-rock in high school, and falling in love with everything folk, from Bob Dylan to Laura Marling. Performing has always been second nature to Caroline. She writes that “connecting in real-time with an audience is the craziest, most mystical and unexplainable experience and I hope to have it a million more times.”

She is certainly an artist to watch.
