Caroline Ferrante

Indie, Alternative-Americana fueled by roots rhythm, powerhouse vocals, and a better world.
The 2017 EP “SKY” is still gaining national press:Her single “Feels Like a Holiday” received #8 the national “Top Ten Singles of 2017” award by Ark of Music.
Her original, “Symphony,” was chosen by the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI) to feature in “This is My Brave- The Show".
Ferrante grew up on the south side of Chicago, studied theater and voice at Northwestern University, and spent summers on family farms in Kansas. She opened for the Birds of Chicago in 2011 and played the leading role in "Rain Follows the Plow: A Dust Opera" at DC's Atlas Performing Arts Center, to national acclaim.Cabbage Run Records produced her first CD, "Live from the Belfry,” in June 2014. DC Concerts wrote, "Caroline’s stunning vocals, threeoctave range, signature 12-string guitar, and crossover songwriting pack a powerhouse punch on the DC live music scene!" April 2015 Ferrante began her Artist in Residency at DC's famous Mansion on O Street, featured on the Travel Channel's "Mega-Mansions.” Her podcast features frequent guest spots for some famous travelers through the colorful Georgetown artist haven. She shared the stage with Grammy and Academy Award winners like Paul Williams, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, Tom Constanten of the Grateful Dead, & Eagles songwriter Jack Tempchin.
Her original “Brighter Day”- celebrating the courage of those who break silence after assault- was featured in playwright Carol Lee Campbell’s “Goddess Diaries” at George Mason University Fall 2016. The single, produced by Marco Delmar, was released November 2016.
Caroline Ferrante was selected to represent the Washington DC area December 2016 as part of the international Acoustic Guitar Project with her original “Savage Beauty".
In 2017 Caroline joined Jim Ellis on lead and John Dahlman on bass as "The Whole Magilla". The band has quickly moved up the ranks: showcased at NERFA NY, Dewey Beach Music Festival, Cultural Arts Center at Montgomery College (DC), University of Duluth, Silvana (Harlem), Bushwick Publick House (Brooklyn), Lovecraft NYC (Lower East Side), & the Clarendon Day Festival (VA).
Currently Caroline is collaborating on a 2018 Release with producer Austin Bello of Forever the Sickest Kids.
SKY EP (2017)
On her new five track EP SKY, Caroline Ferrante emerges as a multi-faceted indie pop artist, powerfully blending that edgy grit with raw emotion and
vulnerability to emerge from a time of despair to defiant and joyful hope.
One of the keys to Caroline creating a fresh, distinctive sound on SKY is her exciting collaboration with Austin Bello of the popular pop/punk band Forever the Sickest Kids, who co-wrote three songs and produced the project. Bello got in touch with the singer after hearing a demo recording she released called “Strand-ed”. Much to her surprise, he fell in love immediately with a rough recording of her intense, emotionally searing song “Better Angels,” which finds her addressing all at once dark family secrets, spiritual crises and her troubled relationship with her dying sister.
“Austin showed me how I could speak my truth through songwriting and still make it accessible. This blew my mind. To realize I could be who I am, warts and all, have my own sound, and know that a publisher might be interested was crazy to me. My inner demons and perfectionism took more of a back seat after that. I was liberated to use my music as a way to navigate through. Find beauty through darkness. Austin helped me own my sound. That's where SKY was born.”
