"Concert Review: Dashboard Confessional w/ The Elwins and Cara Bateman at the Commodore Ballroom – February 21st, 2018"

Supporting Carrabba and the group was singer Cara Bateman and Toronto natives The Elwins. Bateman, a storyteller with her music, put on a charming performance with just her and her guitar. She gave the large, open room an intimate, coffee shop feel. The BC songstress prefaced nearly every song with the story behind it, allowing for the crowd to get to know her. Bateman’s gorgeous voice dazzled the room, and it shows that sometimes keeping it simple can be so impactful. - The Permanent Rain Press


First Songs EP (2016)



Anyone can hear what makes Cara Bateman’s voice special the moment she starts to sing. A true vocalist’s vocalist, she floats effortlessly between dreamy, sultry, and powerful, writing singable but complex songs that showcase the full breadth of her ability. Her admirers include internationally renowned producers, artists, and bands like Dashboard Confessional, The Elwins, and JUNO Award-winning rockers Dizzy, all of whom have asked Bateman to open for them. In 2019, Cara was also handpicked to play as a featured artist for the Canadian Music Week in Toronto, ON, where she received rave reviews of her performance.

“Some Thoughts I've Had,” upcoming EP, contains four beautifully sparse pop songs with gorgeous R&B/soul instrumentation (recorded live off the floor) that perfectly feature her stunning, raspy voice and elevate her captivating songwriting. The resulting sense of rawness, love, and longing resonate in every note of the EP — these thoughts, like lavender lemonade on a sunny spring day, are sweet, sumptuous, and perfectly addictive.
