After skyrocketing to stardom and the top of the charts with the smash hit “Call Me Maybe,” Grammy nominee Carly Rae Jepsen will make her Wolf Trap debut. While growing up in Canada, Jepsen was greatly influenced by music. In 2007 she competed on Canadian Idol and successfully came in third place. The following year she released her debut album, Tug of War, and received two Juno Award nominations. Jepsen’s big break came in early 2012 when pop singer Justin Bieber heard her single “Call Me Maybe” on the radio in Canada. The result changed Jepsen’s life. Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun helped to get Jepsen signed to his record label, School Boy Records, as well as Interscope Records. Most recently, she released Kiss in 2012, which features the hit singles “Good Time” with Owl City and “Tonight I’m Getting Over You.”
Pop/rock foursome Hot Chelle Rae will bring their upbeat sound, which has spawned national radioplay, to the Filene Center. The band formed in 2005 in Nashville and is composed of brothers Ryan Follesé (lead vocals and guitar) and Jamie Follesé (drums), along with Nash Overstreet (lead guitar) and Ian Keaggy (bass guitar), who all come from musical families. They released their first album, Lovesick Electric, in 2009, but it was 2011’sWhatever that brought them great success. The album features pop favorites “Tonight Tonight” and “I Like it Like That.” Early in 2013 Hot Chelle Rae released the single “Hung Up” and is scheduled to release an album later this year.
