Cara Hammond is an indie singer-songwriter from Wrexham, North Wales. Influenced by female artists such as Lianne La Havas and Lana Del Rey, Cara's music can be described as an eclectic mix of indie pop, neo soul and folk which blend together through Cara's honest lyrics and warm vocal tones.
Cara began writing songs when she was 11, going on to self-release 3 EP’s independently and a series of singles through the indie label, Oswaldo. Cara's music has been featured on 7 Spotify New Music Friday’s across Asia, been A listed on national BBC Radio and featured in the BBC Introducing's Hotlist. During the pandemic Cara learnt how to produce, leading to her first self produced EP ‘twenty four hours’. The leading track ‘Losing Balance’ has since surpassed 1 million streams on Spotify, and has been performed live on BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Scotland.
Cara's most recent releases, Borderlines, America and Green Vase have had amazing support from BBC Radio Wales and Radio X, including an artist of the week feature and adds to Spotify playlists Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Folk.
Since supporting Charlotte Church at 15, Cara has performed at iconic venues The Roundhouse and Ronnie Scotts in London, as well as festivals SXSW, Boomtown, Love Supreme, Green Man, Rock Oyster, The Great Escape and Focus Wales.
Cara's highly anticipated new EP Borderlines comes out 3rd November which she will be performing on her debut UK tour (with support from Rebecca Hurn) the same month.
