The Caroliner: SX Wrap-up & Spring Preview

Posted on 3/27/2015
The killer “B’s”….Beer, Bands and Barbecue! Thanks to all who helped make the annual Caroline SXSW BBQ a success. Not only was it our biggest ever, but we somehow managed to get through the day without getting shut-down and without a pizza winding up on the turntable! The addition of Musicians on Call as a charitable partner was particularly important for us this year, and we appreciate all of the incredible brands who supplied raffle prizes (click here for a full list), as well as those who donated to enter (congrats winners!).

Big thanks to our Presents Partner World Arts, and legendary libations Patron and Stone Brewery, for helping to make for such a great day. We have already put Salt Lick on hold for SXSW 2016!

And congratulations to all of our label and artist partners on a great week of performances and events. There was much to celebrate this year and the music was truly inspiring! See you next year.

Sr. Manager,
Label Operations

Greetings! I work in Production/Label Operations for Caroline and have the opportunity to work with many wonderful labels. Born and raised in NYC, musica is a critical element of my being and has always played an important role in my creative pursuits. I am drawn by music that is typically dance floor oriented and carries a certain essence and integrity of intent.

Ranging from samba to new jack swing, this Caroliner Corner Playlist is a bit of a mélange that reflects tracks that I presently find inspiring. Thank you and enjoy!
