Biography

Cara Elizabeth Quici (born May 30, 1985) is an American singer/songwriter born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas now living in New York City and Los Angeles. Cara first began singing church hymns at the age of 5 and throughout Cara’s school years, she cultivated and showcased her talent by participating in local school talent shows and church musicals.
As a pre-teen Cara attended International Modeling and Talent Association (IMTA) Convention in Hollywood, California with her Texas Agency, Infinity Model and Talent Agency. She won various awards for singing, dancing, acting, and modeling. Due to her parents being unable to move to Hollywood as her guardians, Cara then flew back to Texas leaving multiple contracts behind. Back in Texas Cara fueled her need to perform on stage by auditioning for cheerleading and went on to become a competition cheerleader, winning many first place trophies with her team at Universal Cheerleaders Association (UCA) competitions. She also was chosen as a “Who’s Who of American Cheerleaders.” On her 18th birthday, which was the same day she graduated High School, Cara sought out to reach her dreams by leaving her small Texas town for the lights and stages of New York City.
After four years in New York Cara branched out to Hollywood, California becoming bi-coastal. During this time she prepped for her first professional recording sessions by attending the reputable Los Angeles based “Oksana’s School of Music” for piano and voice. Acclaimed pianist Oksana Kolesnikova was Cara’s teacher for piano. Cara then added accomplished Musician’s Institute Hollywood vocal coach Carol Rogers, known as Mama O, to her schooling. After recording over 30 songs with the industry’s top producers and writers in Los Angeles, New York, and Miami combined, Cara then released her first single to the public entitled “Away From You” which was also co-written by the singer herself. The track is produced by Max Gousse and BillBoard Hot 100 producer Fuego, who is most known for producing Jason Derulo’s “Whatcha Say” and the recent Chris Brown single “Turn Up The Music” “Away From You” Jumpsmokers remix, which premiered with mass appeal to radio stations all over the country and TV’s Music Choice was able to reach the 27th position on Dance Billboard charts.
As of early 2011-present Cara Quici has been working with choreographers and vocal coaches, including vocal coach Wendy Parr who is known for working with Patti La Belle and Bette Midler. Quici has been working on her performances consistently and has successful shows under her belt including her first live show at Rokk City in New York City, which was to benefit the Humane Society and over capacitated the venue. Quici's National TV performances include episode 7 of Bravo's Season 5 "Real Housewives of New York City" where she performed her 3 singles "Do It Now", "Fall" and "Bad Girl". She was also featured performing live on Bravo TV's "Watch What Happens Live" hosted by Andy Cohen season 7, episode 22. Rise and 'Fall' (Clubhouse favorite Cara Quici popped in to serve drinks and sing her hit song, 'Fall). Cara Quici’s unreleased songs “Adios” “OAI” & “Clone” were also featured on four different episodes of the CMT’s hit Show “Southern Nights.”
In recent news Cara Quici and celebrity fashion photographer Gian Andrea di Stefano have collaborated in an original series of photographs portraying the authentic identity of Quici and her iconic inspirations; Goddess of Punk Rock, BLONDIE’S leading lady, DEBBIE HARRY and the Queen of Pop, MADONNA. Quici’s photo’s have received National attention and press. Among having 12 singles already on Itunes, Quici will be releasing a highly anticipated new single that is licensed by Universal and Sony, in the next coming months. This single will debut through radio personalities nationwide. Quici continues to write melodies and lyrics, was recently accepted into Pandora Radio, and has been dubbed as a “pop star” by NY’s Page Six and Daily News newspapers.

Lyrics

Away From You

Written By: Cara Quici & Victoria Horn

AWAY FROM YOU

Time is runnin in the opposite way to you
I'm tryin to catch it
And pull it right back in view
And what we're missing when we're not together
You know it's still there right up in the air
It's bitter sweet cause it only reminds you
What you feel for me

Is the night too long
Does your heart beat slow
Every time I'm away from you
Does your love burn hot
And your skin turn cold
Every time I'm away from you

Every time that I'm away from you
Every time that I'm away from you

Now are ya ready
Kiss me all night like I wanna be
Ooo baby I need ya body right here with me
And what we're missing when we're not together
You know it's still there right up in the air
It's bitter sweet cause it only reminds you
What you feel for me

Is the night too long
Does your heart beat slow
Every time I'm away from you
Does your love burn hot
And your skin turn cold
Every time I'm away from you

Every time that I'm away from you
Every time that I'm away from you

Without You

Written By: Cara Quici & Tommy Brown

WITHOUT YOU

WE'RE TOGETHER
BUT YOU'RE THE ONE TO BREAK IT UP
THE FIRST TO SAY THAT YOU'RE IN LOVE
ALSO THE FIRST TO GIVE IT UP
YOU'RE SUCH A HYOCRITE TONIGHT
EVEN WHEN YOU'RE WRONG YOU SAY YOU'RE RIGHT
AND THEN YOU RUN
IN MY DIRECTION HERE YOU COME, AGAIN

SINCE YOU LEFT ME ALONE
I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
NO NEED TO CALL MY PHONE
CAUSE I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
BABY, OOOH
BABY, OOOH
READY TO RIGHT YOUR WRONG
SO I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU

BUT I KNOW TOMORROW
I'LL BE RIGHT BACK IN YOUR BED
AND YOU'LL BE MESSIN WITH MY HEAD
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WHERE WE BEGAN, AGAIN
I'M SUCH A SUCKER FOR YOUR LIES
I'VE NEVER BEEN SO HYPNOTIZED
AND THEN YOU RUN
IN MY DIRECTION HERE YOU COME, AGAIN

SINCE YOU LEFT ME ALONE
I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
NO NEED TO CALL MY PHONE
CAUSE I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
BABY, OOOH
BABY, OOOH
READY TO RIGHT YOUR WRONG
SO I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU

I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
WITHOUT YOU, WITHOUT YOU
I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
WITHOUT YOU, WITHOUT YOU

SINCE YOU LEFT ME ALONE
I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
NO NEED TO CALL MY PHONE
CAUSE I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU
BABY, OOOH
BABY, OOOH
READY TO RIGHT YOUR WRONG
SO I'M GONNA DANCE TONIGHT WITHOUT YOU

Fall

Written By: Eric Sanicola

VERSE 1
Every moment witcha's like I'm standing on a bridge ready to jump
And you got me leaning off the edge every time that we touch... OHH

PRE CHORUS
But Baby we've been up here so long
Scared of what's down below
Why be afraid of a lifetime together
I can't hold on no more
I'm bout to jump right off
So come with me and leave me never

CHORUS
I wanna fall and fall and fall and fall and fall right through the floor
And fall some more and more and more and more and more
Baby I just wanna fall and fall and fall and fall and fall right through the floor
And fall some more and more and more and more and more
Baby I just wanna fall

VERSE 2
Baby we got everything we need so just hold on for the ride
Cuz down below is everything I'll ever need in my life... OOHH

Bridge
And even though we're looking so far down
What's underneath those clouds
Boy we just don't know
And every day we spend to figure it out
Is another day alone
Oooh YEAA YEA
