Carolina Liar Biography
The man behind this Alternative-Rock band is singer + guitarist Chad Wolfe. Born in Charleston, South Carolina USA, Wolfe eventually made his way to Los Angeles in an attempt to launch a career in music but he honed his songwriting in Stockholm. It was there that he pulled together guitarists Rickard Göransson and Jim Almgren Gandara, keyboardist Johan Carlsson, bassist Erik Hääger and drummer Max Grahn to form Carolina Liar.
The band's debut album, "Coming To Terms", was released in
May 2008 on Atlantic Records, reaching #140 on The Billboard 200. The
disc was prefaced by the propulsive single "I'm Not Over" which
made a stunning debut at #3 on The Hot Modern Rock chart; the follow-up
single, "Show Me What I'm Looking For", not only enjoyed multi-format
radio success in U.S. but broke into The Billboard Hot 100 and hit the
U.K. Top 40 sales charts.
By 2009 three of the band members left the group, Almgren Gandara, Hääger and Grahn, leaving the remaining trio without the rhythm section.
After the addition of Peter Carlsson on drums and percussion, Carolina Liar set out to record its sophomore album, "WIld Blessed Freedom", which arrived in September 2011. It includes the single "Drown".
