Meet Karlie Bartholomew, a Berklee student, originally from Baltimore.
I can't wait for you to hear Karlie's ethereal voice. She is softly soulful, yet powerful in delivering her message. If there must be comparisons, Bartholomew's must be Nora Jones. Her refinement is completely impressive. Karlie describes her music as singer-songwriter with pop, folk and R&B influences. Her biggest influences have been Nora Jones, Ingrid Michaelson, and Tori Kelly. She has played guitar for over 8 years and also plays the ukulele. She is releasing her Karlie her first full-band EP titled "Isn't That What Adults Do?" soon. The songs she wrote for this project are mostly about her time here in Boston; coming of age, and living on her own.
