Karlie Bartholomew is a singer-songwriter whose voice is often described as being as “smooth as butter.” Born in Baltimore, Maryland, she first taught herself to play guitar and began writing songs in the comfort of her childhood room. Since then, her music has developed undertones of pop, folk, country and R&B which are layered into her catchy acoustic tunes.
In May 2017, Karlie graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Music, focusing on Contemporary Writing/Production and Performance. She has also appeared at several major venues in the Delmarva area, including Rams Head Live, Baltimore Soundstage, DC9 and the 9:30 Club.
Karlie currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee with plans to release a new album and make her mark on the Nashville music scene.
"She is softly soulful, yet powerful in delivering her message."
"With hard work comes success, and it is clear that this young artist is putting in her dues now in order to further herself as much as possible for the future."

"I was able to see Karlie perform in Glen Burnie, Maryland. She went onstage with just herself and her acoustic guitar. But her performance clearly evinced that was all she needed. Her voice was the epitome of cool and soulful."
