About the Artist
Cara Samantha is a Grammy award winning background vocalist and American Idol alum who infuses jazzy soul into her unique pop stylings. She is featured as the singing voices of Adele, Elsa, Ellie Goulding, Madonna and more in The Key of Awesome’s viral music parodies on YouTube with several million views and voiced the co-lead character in Audible’s original story, Jukebox Joyride by The Pop Ups.
Cara can be heard around the tri-state area as a bandleader and emcee for weddings, private parties, children’s birthdays and notable restaurants and hotels. Most recently, she sang the national anthem at Nassau Coliseum and at the Red Bull’s Stadium for over 20,000 fans.
Cara wrote her first songs in the Fall of 2011 and brought them to Dominic Fallacaro for musical input. Their dynamic and complimentary pairing proved to be a huge success and soon after, an EP was in the works. In February 2012, Cara began a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise money to record the album, and in just two weeks, she exceeded her goal and raised $5,000 toward the EP. The album was recorded mostly in one day in April and fully mixed and mastered by June 2012 – just seven months after her first song-writing attempt.
