Native to the Wichita plains and raised in Boulder, CO, Kara's midwestern roots seep through her sultry voice and songwriting with an eclectic blend of pop, soul and rock 'n roll. For the last few years, she's been traveling around the country, establishing herself in different markets, including Charleston, Seattle, San Francisco, and Denver. In 2010, she opened for the late B.B. King at Red Rocks, alongside Al Green and Buddy Guy, with Denver-based classic rock band, the Groovehawgs. In promotion of her debut EP, Better By Morning, she most recently opened for Steve Miller Band with her own 4-piece, Seattle-based band during the Road Home Tour. This summer she is again uprooting, bound for the northeast coast.
