Lupe Carroll competed on Season 5 of The Voice, along with fellow Campfire Stars Austin Jenckes and Brian Pounds. He is a bluesy singer-songwriter from Chicago who writes romantic tunes with a quartet of instrumentalists. Carroll began as a solo artist performing in coffee shops and bars in the city. The project has since taken multiple forms: as a quartet and as a duo with his wife playing cello. Carroll has played at the famed Metro club in Chicago, summer block parties and venues in Bourbonnais, Illinois. His debut full-length, The Love We Found, was fully funded by a Kickstarter campaign in 2014. He cites Marc Broussard, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Van Morrison and James Taylor as major influences.
