Album Notes
"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 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. 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 12 original tracks, the debut album will feature some of Chicago-land’s best and brightest musicians.

A native of Pittsburgh, Kara began pursuing a career in the arts at the early age of 8, singing, acting and dancing at the Act One Theatre School. A classically trained vocalist, Kara’s education continued under the tutelage of Carnegie Mellon professor Robert Fire where she competed in honors choir competitions at the state level and regional level. She attended one year at Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music in Ohio studying musical theatre but soon after ventured her way to Chicago and lost interest in the costumes, make up and memorizing lines and found a new passion and love for the guitar, song writing and live music.
