“When You Say Nothing At All”

 

the link took me first to a duet, then to a Doris Day song cover, then to a Fix You cover. Instagram has been weird for me lately 😭

 

but yeah, that cover is great!

I agree. Thanks for posting the link! Cara wrote it's "one of my favorite songs to sing." I hope she does it and other acoustic covers on the show. I like her guitar playing and don't want her lovely voice to be drowned out by The Voice band.

Not sure if she is her style but I think a Kacey Musgraves cover could work

 

I also think Norah Jones songs could work for her too. By the way, do you want to be added to her fan list??

I've been trying to figure out which former Voice contestant she reminds me of, and I think I've got it. I think her voice is midway between Bekah's and Lauren Duski's. They all have that "sparkling" quality to their voice, but the former sounds youthful and the latter sounds mature. Cara is somewhere in the middle.

Cara's website bio mentions that she has opened for Adam Lambert (runner-up of American Idol season 8). I did some digging to find out about that guest performance.

 

from Craig S. Semon's 12/13/19 Telegram.com article linked below:

 

Worcester's songbird Cara Brindisi and violinist Kathryn Skudera delivered a short but stellar five-song, 20-minute set that featured two originals (including the recent scorcher "You Hold the Matches") and three covers (including the best cover I've ever heard of Cheap Trick's "I Want You To Want Me," in which Brindisi tapped into a dark undercurrent that I never knew existed in the infectious pop rocker).

 

Adam's 70-minute set included 19 songs.

April 2021

from Pulse Magazine interview:

 

Cara noted that her main inspirations while a developing artist were Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan, Alison Krause, and Norah Jones.

 

Booming Broadway leading ladies such as Bette Midler contributed to her unique sound, and genre range.

 

Her voice teacher, Chas Kircher, was another inspiration. He introduced her to a wide variety of music and suggested Berklee College of Music.

 

According to Cara, "From early on, music was all I did—community theatre, choirs, music lessons."

 

She learned songs from the Beatles and Eagles on guitar for her day job as a music therapist.

I checked her Instagram to see who else from the contestants list she followed, but ended up seeing that she followed Ruston Kelly and Phoebe Bridgers. The taste :wub:

 

Out of the coaches, she only follows Blake and Gwen, fwiw. Really hoping she's on Team Blake.

was scrolling through her covers highlights on IG, had to post these:

Singing "You're Still The One" live, she could definitely go country on the show if she wanted to. If she's with Blake, he might push her to go that direction.

This is a clip of her performing with Ricky Duran and some other guy, and?? I didn't know that could come out of her mouth :0

 

 

edit: wait, apparently the links don't take you to the individual stories, but the first and second links are for page 9 and 12 of the highlights, respectively.

Unfortunately, I don't have an Instagram account and can't listen to the clips. 🙁 What song are Cara and Ricky singing?

Ricky wasn't singing in the clip, I believe he was just playing guitar, and I couldn't really tell what song it was, sorry.

Don't know the song. It sounds like a country song though. A song that is usually in the style of Gretchen Wilson or Reba. On the other clip, Ricky was singing Let it Be while Cara was humming with him.

This artist profile says Cara provided "backing vocals for Ricky Duran at The Hanover Theatre."

https://www.sofarsounds.com/artists/cara-brindisi

 

Ricky's homecoming concert was originally scheduled on March 27, 2020 at The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts in Worcester but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After the show was rescheduled from 06/19/20, 10/10/20, and 03/27/21, it finally took place on 09/18/21.

I'm contemplating how far Gwen would take her if she was on her team. I think she usually prefers to take younger contestants far.

Me too. I wish we knew whose team Cara joined. She seemed to arrive in LA early enough for Blake to be her coach. But apparently Blake's battle rehearsals were taped on Monday and Cara was more glammed up on Tuesday, so she might be with Gwen instead.

Cara co-founded Women of Worcester Productions, an event production company dedicated to promoting female musicians in Worcester county, in 2016. Today's article includes a photo of Cara with the other two founders (Amanda Cote and Sarah French) and this quote.

Cara: Every woman from the Women of Worcester days have inspired me in the past and continue to inspire me. Those few years had a great influence on me and taught me so much about the power of our voices coming together.
