“Beautiful lyrics and a wonderfully quirky voice…”– For Folks Sake
The enchanting nineteen year old Cara Mitchell is back with her breath taking latest EP, Afraid of The Dark, out on 11th November 2014 via AGP.
Originally from Aberdeen in Scotland, Cara has been honing her skills for the past two years to create something even more flawless than her debut EP Have You Ever Wondered. Cara’s unique vocal tone is just the beginning of her talents, with her charming lyrics and beautifully arranged harmonies bringing each song together beautifully.
Cara’s vocals very much take centre stage on ‘Suspended Motion’, with her incredible ability to bend notes in an almost Blues like fashion. Stream and download the track for free via the ABoF SoundCloud page.
The five track EP opens with ‘Dust to Dust’, which immediately introduces the listener to Cara’s gorgeous tone. The track builds with the drums a driving force to a beat that you can’t help but tap your foot to. As you move through the EP, the tracks soften slightly with ‘Suspended Motion’, before ending with the gorgeous ‘This Human’, delicately allying Cara’s soft vocals and the strummed acoustic guitar, making you wish you were cuddled up close to someone by the fire.
In the last two years Cara has supported the likes of Emeli Sande, Rachel Sermanni, Simone Felice and Emily & The Woods. She has also performed a televised session for BBC Scotland as well as picking up support from the likes of Jim Gellatly, BBC Radio 1, The Scotsman and For Folks Sake. Her sharp rise in Scotland saw her gain a nomination for Best Acoustic Act at the 2013 and 2014 Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
Afraid of The Dark is due for release on 11th November 2014 via AGP.
