Carolina Liar is an American alternative rock band. Lead vocalist Chad Wolf is originally from Moncks Corner, South Carolina; other members originate from Stockholm, Sweden.[1]

Career[edit]

The band is best known for the songs "I'm Not Over" and "Show Me What I'm Looking For", from their 2008 major-label debut album, Coming to Terms, produced by Swedish producers Max Martin and Tobias Karlsson.

The song "I'm Not Over" featured in the 2008 film What Happens in Vegas, starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, and in UEFA Euro 2008 video game.

On March 3, 2009, the single "Show Me What I'm Looking For" was featured on the iTunes Store as the Free Single of the Week. "Show Me What I'm Looking For" appeared in FOX Sports commercials for the 2009 MLB All-Star Game.

"Show Me What I’m Looking For" and "Open The Door" will be featured in commercials for Investigation Discovery's new show, Disappeared. "Show Me What I’m Looking For" will also be featured in promo spots for We TV's The Locator.

In the spring of 2014, an instrumental version of "Show Me What I'm Looking For" was used in an advertising campaign for Swinton Insurance. The TV advert featured the Britain's Got Talent 2013 winners, Attraction.

Carolina Liar was the supporting act on the David Cook/Gavin Degraw 2011 Fall Tour. In 2012, they were the opening act for the Kelly Clarkson/The Fray Tour.

Carolina Liar also played as the opening act for Rob Thomas while he was playing in New York City at the Beacon Theater and the rest of the stops on his Cradlesong Tour.
