The best kept secret in music


"Review by Wes Gillespie"

"Her new 5 track CD is the culmination of her redeveloping her love for writing and performing music, something which she became disenchanted with in 1996 but renewed her love affair with the music business in 2003. A year later she has released her new (mini)-album which is a cross-over between vaudeville ( on the title track 'Insatiable'), pop, jazz, blues and adult contemporary."

"Review by John Ash"

“Cara Young does deserve to be a star and why she is not baffles me…With a voice of sheer velvet Cara should be up there and I hope I hear more of this American star.”

"Review by Colin Lynch"

“Cara Young has a truly innovative vocal style that is as equally at home with jazz as it is with a whole host of related and unrelated ear-enticing genres.”

“...she's a rare and talented artist and she deserves nothing less than global attention on a grand scale.”

Colin Lynch/International Online Music Magazine- July 07 2004 - Internationl Online Music magazine


Insatiable EP, featuring 4 original songs and one cover.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Cara Young was born with two hearts—one that pumped the blood through her body and one that pumped music through her veins. How else do you explain a child of only a few years creating songs out of thin air while playing in her backyard? The music came from inside of her: rhythms that she hadn’t heard before, melodies that she hummed out loud and words that came together almost magically.

The combination of Cara’s ambitious nature with this constant musical pulse drove her to pursue a career in the music business. In college at Middle Tennessee State University, she performed often, wrote many songs alone, collaborated musically to write dozens more songs, recorded many of her original songs in the on-campus studios and learned the intricacies of the music business. After graduation, Cara took the most logical next step, getting a job at Warner Bros. Records in Nashville. Her thought process was to get inside the music industry and then find a way to expose her music to people in high positions who could help her “make it.”

Then something unpredictable happened: Cara became so disenchanted with what she saw of the music biz that she began to suppress her own music, to the extent of wishing…praying that her musical heart would quit beating and just let her live a normal life. And she got her wish…

But some things are meant to be. A girl born with music inside of her can only suppress the normal function of her body for so long…the pulse began to beat a little here and there, then over time came back to a full cadence. The difference this time was that Cara was ready to embrace what she had always taken for granted, what she had almost viewed as a burden. She was now ready to create again and to share her creations with the world. This is how Insatiable was born—along with the arrangement and production expertise of Dallas’s own piano man, Mark Carroll, who has worked with the likes of Peggy Lee and Diane Schurr. This five-song EP features three of Cara’s brand new songs, one resurrected from her time at MTSU, and one classic lounge song that is dear to Cara’s heart. The beat goes on…and hopefully on and on…
