Project Description

Kara Cavanaugh

Kara Cavanaugh is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago.

Her debut album “Ain’t Gonna Run” produced by Packy Lundholm (I Fight Dragons) and Dan Moulder (Tom Schraeder & His Ego, Free Space) is a diverse collection that features her musical influences ranging from Laurel Canyon folk, powerful piano ballads, sultry R&B, and cinematic soundscapes.

With this new material, Kara is poised and excited to introduce you to a side of her yet unseen.

“You nailed this album…sounds phenomenal.”
⁃ Meagan Panici, WZRD 88.3 FM Chicago

“I am really impressed with the production and your powerful voice. I think you are ready for the next chapter in your life.”
⁃ Melvin Seals, Jerry Garcia Band

In the short time since Kara Cavanaugh has ventured into the Chicago music scene, the soulful, dynamic vocalist has accomplished more than most singers in a lifetime. Making a name for herself backing the nationally touring Grateful Dead tribute band Terrapin Flyer and Jerry Garcia Band alumni and organist, Melvin Seals, Kara stretches the genre with powerful performances and sultry lead presence.
It was only a matter of time before the charismatic vocalist sought to move out into the spotlight, fronting her own band to showcase her abilities as a songwriter and strengthen her solo performances. Currently in production on her first full length release, Kara Cavanaugh is poised and ready to introduce a side of her as yet unseen.
