KITCHENER, ONTARIO | JANUARY 11, 2018 (Press Release): Today, award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Cara Leigh announced details for her sixth EP release, Home, which will be released on March 2, 2018 via Electric Bird Records. With past experience creating music in both the folk/indie and electronic worlds, Cara found Electric Bird to be the perfect Home for the release. Home is a five-track EP, produced by the UK’s Cornelius Julius, filled with soothing vocals and emotionally-driven lyrics that will leave you feeling cozy and warm on any given day. To celebrate the announcement, Cara released a live acoustic video of “Went Away,” the first single released from the album and one that pulls on the heartstrings. A homage to an old friend who has passed on, Cara wrote “Went Away” as her means to grieve with a loss, a feeling that transcends the music and invokes the listener.
On the release, Cara Leigh states:
“I believe this is some of my best work to date. The process of making this EP was intentional, and specific and this helped shape the overall vibe of what I was trying to create. The whole EP process involved significant collaboration from friends and family, (production, mastering, artwork, etc) which has made this EP that much more special to me.” - Cara Leigh
