What you'll hear... are the band's tightly constructed, classic-country-referencing songs given flight by Cara Wegener's strident and commanding vocals.”

Classic country sounds partner with Americana sensibilities and a clear path for Cara’s keen songwriting.”

After a busy summer opening for Margo Price, Nikki Lane, and Hayes Carll, Cara Louise is thrilled to announce her latest EP, Fragile Heart, recorded with David Beeman at Native Sound in St. Louis, MO. The 5-song collection separates Louise from her past work with Cara Louise Band as she navigates a 1960s yé-yé-inspired production by introducing synthesizers, drum triggers and ethereal vocal effects to her otherwise alt-country sound. 

David Beeman has worked on various projects for Pokey La Farge, Tonina, Vera Sola, Ian Fisher and more. He produced, recorded, mixed and wrote on the album with Cara Louise. 

Fragile Heart opens with the title track and first single; a dance worthy pop tune that gracefully resists genre and era precincts much like the rest of the EP.  The album’s second single, Turn Tears Into Rain, slows down time in a rhythmic trance as Louise’s vocals sail over dreamy strings arrangements and delicate steel guitar. It’s Neil Young meets an Audrey Hepburn film. The video for Turn Tears Into Rain premiered on DittyTV station The Curve on September 2, 2019.
