Cara’s passion for music imbues everything she sings – blues, jazz standards and her own tunes. She has a voice where silk meets smoke. She has performed in Paris and Glasgow, as well as in the US. Cara started performing in Texas and Louisiana while still too young to legally get into the bars. Old enough to vamp a tune, collaborate with a quartet and connect with audiences, she kept singing.

Music, as Cara sings it, is an aural art form, one that can’t be learned fully from books or charts. The sound itself, old 78s and LP performances before autotune, was her primary mentor. Always drawn to the incredible musical era of the 20s and 30s, her primary influences include Alberta Hunter, Mildred Bailey, Lee Wiley, Connee Boswell, Hoagy Carmichael and Jack Teagarden. She studied voice with Robert Hunt Robinson, Master Teacher of traditional Italian Garcia-Marchesi vocal technique. She is fascinated by the use and impact of voice as an instrument, and collaboration of musicians across different genres. In addition to singing, she plays troubadour harp and is studying to play harp for hospice patients. Cara lives in San Francisco and Seattle.
