Profiled Artist: Cara Samantha
"Singer and song writer Cara Samantha hails from New York City, a city that births artists full of creativity and passion. I’m sure my hometown is honored to say that Cara is one of those births. Cara is said to be the love child of Sara Bareilles, Norah Jones and Carole King – and with good reason. Her voice is powerful and fun and her songs have a spark to them that make your heart instantly feel a little happier."

Cara Samantha outshines her American Idol competitors with her new EP
"(Cara) Samantha has been compared with Sara Bareilles and Norah Jones, but the bottom line is that this lady can sing! Her four-song EP reflects her talent and gives us a taste of what is yet to come. Unlike some other debuts I have heard, this artist has definitely hit the ground running with an EP that is truly radio ready."
"If only all of us could master something as quickly as one Cara Samantha seemingly has – the NYC-based artist is crafting songs that sound like they’ve been produced by a veteran on an ultra-competitive scene – not a songstress who just began pursuing a singer/songwriter career last year!"
