About Carolina East
Carolina East didn’t have an interest in music until the age of 16 when she started playing cover songs in bars downtown. For 18 years, she played in bars, but knew she needed more or to give up the bar scene entirely. Going back and forth from her day job to gigs, she’d clock 18-hour days.
