Cara Louise is an acclaimed Midwestern-based songwriter and singer whose musical accomplishments range across a wide variety of genre’s and bands. In 2013 the sultry songstress decided to form a group of her own, showcasing her tremendous ability to tear apart one’s heartstrings with her mystic lyricism and soulful voice. Her poetic lines entangle and enchant, while the band’s musical backing provide a sonic landscape in which one can’t help but lose themselves.
The Cara Louise Band consists of original singer/songwriter Cara Wegener, and her backing group; made up of Nick Adamson on the mandolin, Kellen Meyer on upright bass, Skyler Leeds on drums, and Adam Donald on electric and steel guitar. The band approaches a golden country style infused with modern effects and unique twists, all the while staying truly consistent with the genre’s folksy and humble roots.
Released in August of 2014, Cara Louise Band’s debut EP “To Be Dead is to Be Known” has received much critical acclaim from publications and fans alike. Spellbinding storytelling, and a punch of brutal honesty make up singer/songwriter Cara Wegener’s clever alternative folk ballads and golden country throwbacks. The band has proved themselves time and time again to be a progressive and defining force in the Indie-Folk, Alt-Country and Americana scene, all while charmingly tipping their hat to the Ole Opry greats. The band is the perfect mesh of the new and unimaginable, with tried and true traditionalism.
