In January, 2018, they participated in their first Battle of the Bands, with other local talents, winning the "Best Vocals Award". Within the following months, they continued to develop as musicians, and in May, less than a year after the band was formed, they made it through to the final round of their countywide talent competition, "MoCo's Got Talent", performing at the Fillmore Silver Spring.
The rest of 2018 gave Karousel even more performances, where they performed at many impressive venues, including:
Villain & Saint
AMP powered by Strathmore.
To end the year, Karousel made their way to the recording studio to record their first single, "What You Have Done". Just a month after it's recording, "What You Have Done" was released on January 24th, 2019. With many new original songs in the works, Karousel is very excited for the "Good Times Comin' Ahead".
