More on Cara
Talented, driven, gracious and alluring are just some of the words used to describe South African born singer songwriter, Cara Frew.
Cara is taking the SA music industry by storm with her enthralling Pop vocals over African influenced beats. She is a dedicated musician who spends most of her time creating, developing and producing. At 18 years of age, having studied at the Malie Kelly Vocal Academy in South Africa, this passionate muso ventured to the City of Angels to follow her dream and enrolled at the Song Writing School of Los Angeles to develop her musical talent further.
During her time in LA she gained first-hand experience working in the studio with top writers and producers, including Lauren Christy and Andre Lindal, the creative duo behind Kelly Clarkson’s Grammy Award-winning ‘Stronger’. Listing Amy Winehouse and Lana Del Rey as some of her favourite artists, it was a dream come true to record a four-track EP with Daniel Heath who was responsible for Del Rey’s ‘Blue jeans’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’ and co-write with Stefan Skarbek, who worked closely with Winehouse. Cara entitled this EP ‘Come Close To Me’ and on the day of it’s release, in April, it became a featured EP on iTunes and was praised under iTunes Mzansi hits.
Back home in South Africa, Cara collaborated with one of Africa’s biggest exports, world-renowned DJ and music producer – Black Coffee. ‘I’ll Find You’ was the first release off Black Coffee’s 2015 album. The feature afforded Cara the opportunity to perform at Sonar Music Festival South Africa, Ultra Music Festival South Africa and Ultra Music Festival Miami 2016.
Cara is signed to Sony Music Entertainment, lives between Los Angeles and South Africa and spends most of her time traveling the globe performing or in studio working on new material. She is currently writing and recording her debut album.
