The dynamic duo of Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel, KaiserCartel formed when the two Brooklyn based musicians joined forces to tour the country the summer of 2004.
They have been touring nationally to a growing audience ever since as well as opened up for national touring acts in NYC such as Joe Pernice, Martha Wainwright, and Morris Tepper of Captain Beefheart. “Eclectic, infectious music” are the words Benjamin uses to describe their low-tech, song driven style. “We want people to feel like a fly on the wall in our living room.” says Courtney. KaiserCartel’s earthy blend of folk-rock and pop will make you laugh, cry, sing along, and want to hold hands with the stranger next to you. Warm up by the fire with KaiserCartel.
