The best kept secret in music



man Carol Fears (born October 7, 1994), aged 17, is a native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she attended the St Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists and majored in theater. While studying at the Conservatory, she performed with Penumbra Theatre Company, the Lehr Theatre, and the History Theatre. She also studied piano, viola, voice, and ballet locally. In April 2011, when she was 16, Fears was accepted to Princeton University and Columbia University. She chose Columbia, but deferred her admission one year so as not to be a “sixteen year old freshman in New York City”. Fears is currently based in Atlanta, Georgia, where she is working on a demo under the guidance of singer/producer Ronnie Devoe of the 1980s boy band New Edition, and his wife, Shamari Devoe of the platinum-winning 1990s R&B girl group Blaque.

Lolita EP (Release date October 2012)

Off to the Races



17-year-old Iman Fears cites famous literary bad girl Dolores Haze as her number one influence in writing the songs for her "Lolita" EP.

In high school, Fears performed with theaters and concert venues across her native Twin Cities. Fears was accepted to Princeton and Columbia, but chose to defer admission for one year to focus on writing dark acoustic pop with a Nabokovian twist.

Fears' cover of Lana Del Rey's "Off to the Races" quickly gained thousands of views on YouTube, catching the attention of New-Edition-band-member-turned-talent-scout Ronnie DeVoe, who promptly agreed to work with her.

The Lolita EP will be released Oct 7 2012.
