Caroline Glaser of NBC’S “The Voice” Announces Fall Tour Dates Opening For Straight No Chaser

DEBUT EP TO BE RELEASED THIS YEAR AND WILL INCLUDE COLLABORATIONS WITH OTHER ARTISTS INCLUDING ANGALEENA PRESLEY OF THE PISTOL ANNIES
Fall Tour Will Also Include a Handful of Solo Shows
“Her voice was incredible and the songs she sang had the crowd
standing close in awe of the young singer.”
– Tulsa World
 Caroline Glaser, a favorite from this past season of NBC’s hit show “The Voice,” will bring what Shakira calls her “angelic” voice on the road this fall as opener for the critically acclaimed a cappella group, Straight No Chaser.  The “Under the Influence” Tour kicks off in Columbia, MO on October 16 and will hit Omaha, Denver, Houston, Dallas, Kansas City, Louisville, Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Nashville and more over two months before wrapping up in Mesa, AZ on December 31. The SNC tour follows a month-long run of club dates which kicked off in New York on September 7 where fans lined up two hours before the show was scheduled to go on to make sure they got tickets.  The mini-tour took her to Chicago, Ames, St. Louis and Tulsa where she received rave reviews. Jerry Wofford of The Tulsa World called her “sweet and bubbly” and said while her set up was simple, “her voice and talent was all she needed to hook the crowd.”  Caroline will also be playing a handful of solo shows during the SNC tour.
Caroline will continue to preview material she’s been working on since her appearance on “The Voice,” mixing her new music with some of her well received covers which you can check out here.  Before she hits the road with SNC, Caroline will head into the studio to begin recording music for her debut EP which will be released before the end of the year.  She’s also been collaborating and writing with a ton of incredible artists, including Angaleena Presley of The Pistol Annies.  Stay tuned for more details on the release of her new EP!
The 19 year-old Chesterfield, MO native, who was given the key to the city on August 19, seems to be settling into the spotlight well.  She went from playing coffee houses to appearing on national TV and winning the hearts of millions of viewers and “The Voice” judges.  Of her initial try-out, Blake Shelton raved, “You came out here and just did a very simple performance and completely blew my mind with it.”  Shakira showered Caroline with accolades, saying her voice was “the kind of voice I’ve been waiting for.”
When asked about heading out on the road with SNC Caroline had this to say, “I’m really excited to tour with Straight No Chaser.  The guys are amazing and so, so talented.”  She goes on, “I’m looking forward to playing for them and their fans, but also getting the chance to see them live every night!  It’s going to be incredible to play some of my new music for my fans and to make some new ones along the way.”
Seggie Isho of Straight No Chaser had this to say about Caroline opening for them, “We are excited to have Caroline join us on tour this fall.  We’ve never had an opening act before but we were all equally impressed with Caroline as both a person and a singer.  She is a unique and special talent and we’re looking forward to having her join us on stage each night.”

NBC’s ‘The Voice’ Season 3 Contestant DE’BORAH to Release New Single

Chicago’s brightest rising star and NBC’s The Voice Season 3 contestant DE’BORAH is releasing her debut single, ‘Coming Out Looking Good’, on March 12, 2013 exclusively via Liquid Spins (this single will not be available at any other digital retailer). Co-produced by WuLi Records producers Ryan T. McGuire and Louis Svitek along with DE’BORAH’s older brother Troy (TJ) Garner (and processed in cutting edge MAX·D HD audio), ‘Coming Out Looking Good’ is the first exclusive new release from any artist at Liquid Spins. Featuring choir-like backing vocals, a pulsating and anthemic drum beat, and the fierce vocals that DE‘BORAH is known for from her run on Season 3 of The Voice, it is clear that this track is a strong debut from a gifted artist who isn’t afraid to be true to herself and to her art.

 

‘Coming Out Looking Good’ spreads DE’BORAH’s message of “being yourself” and her passion of raising awareness about LGBT rights and related bullying in America. “We’re going through a tough time in America right now with bullying and it’s never too late to be educated. Even the wise needs wisdom,” states DE’BORAH.“I’m happy to be a part of this movement. Any step that I can take in motivating or encouraging youth and society in any way, I’m happy to be a part of. I have seven younger siblings myself and I want them to be able to be themselves, straight or gay.

 

‘Coming Out Looking Good’ showcases DE’BORAH’s visceral and sometimes raw vocal strength, which says a lot about her personality and her willingness to take risks. She describes her music and overall swagger as very eclectic—energetically intertwining rock, alternative, soul and pop into her own unpredictable range of styles.DE’BORAH believes music is about stories and writes music from within, often relating her experiences to today’s youth. She states, “Music will always reflect who I am.

 

DE’BORAH‘s voice is uniquely mature for a 25-year-old. She is never complacent and she seeks constant improvement in all areas. DE’BORAH takes and applies all the advice she was given from Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine on The Voice and all the music industry professionals she has had the opportunity to come across. Cee Lo Green told her he loved her “swag,” attitude and energy. Christina Aguilera said she had “so much fun” listening to her performances.

 

DE’BORAH is no stranger to the stage. DE’BORAH’s live performances started locally in her hometown church and high school music department in Chicago Heights, IL. Since performing as a contestant on The VoiceDE’BORAH has been singing at countless events across the country. She has upcoming performances set to be announced soon.

 

2013 is the year of DE’BORAH! Keep your eyes and ears open for more news coming soon!

Chevonne To Kickstart Her Career After The Voice

Chevonne, from this season NBC’s “The Voice”, has started a Kickstarter for her debut album & music video. Check out the story CBS did on her here.

Chevonne, the pop/rock/funk/soul scream machine has just announced her Kickstarter campaign launch, which is live now here: http://kck.st/UIm1gR. Fresh off NBC’s “The Voice”, Season 3, it’s time for this big hair, big eyed Jersey girl to release her debut record and music video. Hands down the best Kickstarter yet, there are pledge prizes ranging from: Chevonne’s blind audition denim booty shorts from “The Voice”, a customized and signed acoustic-electric guitar used to write the debut album, a walk-on role in the music video, signed/customized microphone, and more! Make sure to support Chevonne, here: http://kck.st/UIm1gR.

Recently taking reality TV by storm on NBC’s “The Voice”, Chevonne sashayed through three rounds as a quirky underdog. She turned pop/soul megastar Cee Lo Green’s chair, as well as country bigwig Blake Shelton’s, with her sassy rendition of The Pretenders’ “Brass In Pocket” with almost 200k views here: http://bit.ly/THcqZh. Before choosing a coach, she was asked to open up about the “pain” Green heard in her voice. She admitted to the live audience-and the 15+ million viewers watching on TV-that she suffered from eating disorders and crippling insecurity, and that she channels this pain when she sings and performs. She earned nods and applause from the other two coaches, Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, and Grammy-winning powerhouse singer, Christina Aguilera, before selecting Cee Lo as her coach.

As a member of Team Cee Lo, she wowed both Cee Lo and his team advisor, Matchbox 20’s Rob Thomas as she nailed rehearsals for her battle round with Avery Wilson on the David Guetta ft. Sia song “Titanium” which has over 450k views here: http://bit.ly/RVjqQy. Although Chevonne didn’t win the battle against her 17-year-old friend and teammate, she was given high praise for her risky and bold stage moves and soaring high notes. Christina Aguilera saved Chevonne with the new “coach steal” feature, applauding Chevonne for her flamboyant and exciting performance vibe.

On Team Xtina, Chevonne pushed the envelope by choosing Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself,” for the Knockout round, paying homage to her love of 80s rock and celebrating her ability to thrive on the show with a fun crowd-pleaser, watch it here: http://bit.ly/SvJPae. When Chevonne debuted the performance after being paired up with gospel/soul singer De’borah Garner, the crowd’s amped-up reaction was palpable. She nailed the song top to bottom, and all four coaches praised her progress and her command of the stage. Ultimately, Chevonne was sent home, but not before Christina implored the leather-clad firecracker to pursue her own original music and artistry. Christina stated, “Chevonne, you are just unafraid to go to that ledge, in all capacities, and just jump off and be like ‘this is me, take it or leave it! You were just out there, as a woman, having fun and I love that about you!” In addition, Chevonne earned countless hype from E! News, Rolling Stone, TV Guide, MTV, Huffington Post, and many more!

Before surprising audiences with her song and fashion choices on “The Voice,” Chevonne sang backup for visionary pop artist and fashion tastemaker Lady Gaga on her MonsterBall world arena tour from 2010-2011. She danced, sang, and improv’d her way through the campy, dark show, making it onto Good Morning America, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and even HBO’s live 2-hour special taped at the Madison Square Garden performances, as well as being a part of the “Born This Way” a cappella bonus song from the MSG shows that became a viral video smash hit.

Before touring with Gaga, Chevonne spent eight months with British R&B pop Estelle, most famous for her hit “American Boy.” Tour highlights with Estelle included the World Cup in Cape Town, The Essence music festival in New Orleans, and an NYC taping of BET’s “Rising Icons” series.

Now is the time for Chevonne to use her past A-list industry experience to make what she calls her, “fiery, fun album that marries rock with soul under a glittery pop umbrella.” Her lyrics are tongue-in-cheek and catchy but never lacking in substance and universality. She’s not afraid to play with her multi-octave range and experiment with new sounds not typical of most female pop triple-threats. Chevonne is ready to bust out the gates with a continuation of the excitement she’s brought to the pop music landscape – it’ll be vibrant, badass, and of course BIG.

Chevonne has announced her Kickstarter campaign to help fund her debut album and music video. To support, please visit: http://kck.st/UIm1gR.
