Caroline Friehs has been playing harp for over a decade. She once tried playing clarinet and guitar, but they were not her calling. In college, she found her calling was harp, and she had wanted to try this instrument since childhood. For Christmas 2001, Santa Mom bought her first harp. Caroline kept it in her dorm and played when she could. After graduating, Caroline became more serious about playing harp, so she bought her current harp, which is an Aoyama 36 string lever harp. Since then she has released two CDs of her work and played in various venues.
