Carlos Barata is a 23 year old, solo acoustic singer-songwriter and performer from Bethlehem, PA, and Lafayette College Class of 2014. With simplistic support by way of his guitar, Barata’s strongest suits are soulful vocals paired with colorful, yet accessible lyrics that speak to and reminisce on styles of the motown and rock of yesterday, along with the pop and folk music of today. His style can be most readily described as acoustic, alternative, with influences ranging from The Beatles to Jack Johnson, The Temptation, Black Keys, City and Colour, and more!
Barata debuted his first album “Believe” in 2009, followed by his second “This State We?re In” just two years later. After a 4 year hiatus, Barata has crafted something special diving deep into himself and the personal experiences of those near and dear, coining his third and self-titled production “Carlos Barata.” Over time Barata has taken the stage at major national and local events, ranging from private parties to bars, restaurants, festivals, weddings, ceremonies, and more, sharing the stage with international touring artists such as Matt & Kim, Dispatch, and Brushfire Records’ Matt Costa. One can also find Barata in his 4 seconds of glory on American Idol: Season 12, Episode 1.
