You hear it over and over, “Don’t quit your day job!” but that’s just what Caroline Cotter did at the start of 2015 when she released her national debut album, Dreaming as I Do. Already receiving national recognition, the album reached #5 on the Folk DJ charts in February, with the second most played song of the month, Bella Blue.
Music has always been at the heart of Caroline’s life, alongside an insatiable passion for travel and global exploration. In the past ten years, Caroline has lived in and traveled to 27 countries on five continents. While writing and recording Dreaming as I Do, she spent the last few years working for the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) in Portland, Maine. CIEE provided amazing opportunities for international community and travel, and further inspired Caroline’s songwriting.
