Music from the third album "NOW" by Cara Jones has been heard on the hit series "Dawson's Creek", independent films and on Pandora Radio campaigns for Samsung's Blu-ray player, Best Buy, Windows Phone and Palm Pre ads.
Vocally Cara Jones is well known outside of the US, particularly in Japan. Cara was born in Philadelphia and studied Japanese at Harvard, moving to Tokyo where her musical career took off. There she released three albums: Different Skies, Pandora's Box, and NOW.
Her spoken voice has been heard on the GPS car navigation systems for the Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, the Land Rover, Ford, Lincoln, and Cadillac. She has played or sung roles in popular Playstation and Sega games, and you heard her announce at the Winter Olympics at Nagano, broadcast worldwide.
Recorded in Philadelphia with Michael Aharon and John Anthony (Solas, Brothers McMullen), Cara's third album "NOW" has been described as running the gamut from Sarah McLachlan to Regina Spektor, Feist, Massive Attack, or Frou Frou, while her voice is "refined, crystalline and has a unique tenderness, perhaps akin to Kate Bush. ...Instrumentals blend electric guitar, keyboards, bass and crisp percussion with sensual lead vocal and extensively layered pop-oriented vocal, certain to please a broad range of female vocal enthusiasts." (quote from Musical Discoveries)
Producer Tony Visconti (whose favorite song is "Heaven's Waiting") has said: "Cara's music is not only a breath of fresh air, it *is* fresh air. She writes from the heart, she expresses her deepest feelings in voice that borders on vulnerable -- but I'm not fooled -- she's powerful. Her music conveys strong feelings, strong messages, gossamer textures and delivers forty-five minutes of sheer pleasure on this CD. How many artists can deliver that these days?"
