Biography

KaiserCartel are American duo Courtney Kaiser (former backing singer for John Mellencamp and for the Wallflowers) and Benjamin Cartel. Their albums include Double Standard (2005), March Forth (2008), Secret Transit (2010).

“We’ve been compared to Gram Parsons & Emmylou Harris,” says Benjamin. “I think we’re more like Lucy and Ricky,” adds Courtney. The dynamic duo of Courtney Kaiser and Benjamin Cartel, KaiserCartel, formed when the two Brooklyn based musicians joined forces to tour the country in the summer of 2004. Crammed into their Toyota Prius named Gertie filled with instruments, thrift store finds, and their furry friends “The Crayons”, KaiserCartel has been touring regionally and nationally ever since.

Courtney started her career at age 2 singing “I am a lonely little petunia in an onion patch” in Indianapolis, Indiana and has continued music throughout the rest of her life. She has studied opera, Indian classical music, and the folk music of South Africa. Courtney gets her inspiration from having no biological roots and her psychic ability to predict her breakups. Courtney has played with United States Three, The Prom, John Mellencamp, Sean Lennon and has recorded with The Wallflowers.
