Carolyn Mescher was born and raised in Camarillo, California, about an hour outside of Los Angeles. As an active member of 4-H, raising steers and riding horses, and the President of the Young Cattlemen’s Association of Ventura County, Carolyn is definitely not what most think of when they hear of a girl from Southern California. That’s what she grew up with though and it’s what gives her a unique sound of rocking country and her tough and independent attitude.
Carolyn’s songwriting began around 8 years old singing as she fed the animals and making up words as she went. “Some songs I would remember day after day. Others were just there for the moment, but no matter how long they remained in my memory, they were always filled with the emotion of that moment, happy or sad.” In junior high, Carolyn started performing in school musicals and as a sophomore in high school, starred as Sandy in Grease.
With a music scholarship, Carolyn started college at California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo, but soon discovered her musical passions didn’t lie in opera. She graduated a business - accounting major, took her CPA exams, and moved to Nashville. As she recalls, “Since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be a singer. The rational side of me took over for a couple years, but that desire never faded. Now, it’s more real than ever and my reasons are no longer all about me. I want to be an inspiration for women, from age 8 to 80, to be independent, strong, and tough.”
Since moving to Nashville in 2011, Carolyn has been learning the ins and outs of the music industry and writing, writing, writing to improve her songwriting skills. That finally paid off at the end of 2013, when she recorded her first album, "Rockin' M", named after her brand and logo. At the beginning of 2014, Carolyn took the final plunge and quit her full-time job to pursue her music career as a country artist full time!
Carolyn’s style of music brings a fresh sound to the Nashville music scene with a mix of attitude, love, toughness, and independence. Keep an eye out for her in 2014 and future years!
