SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT AFRICA PRESENTS CARA FREW ‘FLAME’

SHOOOOSH! CARA FREW00001

Cara Frew, one of South Africa’s most exciting global musical exports is now ready to unveil her brand new album FLAME to the world.

Currently living in Los Angeles Cara Frew has been hard at work perfecting her debut release now available for Pre-Order across all DSP’s. Her forthcoming body of work marks a major moment in Cara’s globetrotting career combining her love for local sounds with her global pop sensibilities, wonderfully topped off with remixes from some of her favourite South African producers.

image006

Beautiful sunsets in Cape Town are what comes to mind with Cara Frew’s latest hit FREE. Introducing you to her soothing vocals over another groovy bassline that is quickly becoming her trademark. Cara takes you on a summertime trip, with this latest piece of work, sure to have worldwide dancefloors simmering in seduction instantly.

‘FREE’ is about that perfect feeling when you are in a relationship that allows you to feel completely at ease and free to be whoever you are and whoever you want to be’ quotes Cara Frew.

ABOUT CARA FREW

Cara Frew studied at Berklee College of Music as well as the Song Writing School of Los Angeles and the Malie Kelly Vocal Academy in South Africa. While living in the City Of Angels she had the opportunity to work with musical greats such as 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 her first four-track EP (‘Come Close to Me’) with Daniel Heath who was responsible for Del Rey’s ‘Blue jeans’ and ‘Young and Beautiful’. All four tracks were co-written with Stefan Skarbek who worked closely with Winehouse.

Back home in South Africa, Cara collaborated on a song 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 collaboration afforded Cara the opportunity to perform at Sónar Music Festival Johannesburg, Ultra Music Festival Miami and South Africa in 2016. Cara’s latest collaboration is with American born DJ SNBRN and earlier this year she joined him on stage at Coachella to perform their song ‘You Got Me’
