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. With undertones of pop, folk, country and jazz, her catchy acoustic tunes will silence any room.

In May 2017, Karlie was chosen as a featured soloist to honor Lucinda Williams for Berklee College of Music’s Commencement Concert. She had the opportunity to sing for an arena filled with seven thousand people, including Lucinda herself. She graduated the following day with a Bachelor’s Degree in Professional Music, focusing in Contemporary Writing/Production and Performance. 

Karlie currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee with plans to release her newest single “Brooklyn Park” in 2019. You can catch Karlie performing weekly throughout the Nashville and Franklin areas.
