“Let Me Go” speaks volumes for listeners, bringing a dynamic edge of honesty and purity to the soul that makes hitting the repeat button effortless. A single like this is just a taste of what this young lady can give the world.
“I tend to write about direct personal experience, but “Let Me Go” was actually inspired by a friend whose parents were not accepting of who he is and were resisting allowing him to grow into the person he wanted to be,” Kara explains. “It goes out to anyone who feels the need to break free of a habit, pattern, or person holding them back, anyone in need of a little self-love—flaws and all, and anyone who feels the pull to forge their own path despite adversity. You are allowed to believe what you believe (or not believe what you don’t), to love who you love, to pursue whatever dream it is you want to pursue, and to, most of all, not feel sorry about it.”

More About Kara Connolly:
Kara Connolly has it all: charisma, a commanding stage presence, an emotive voice, and that rare gift for writing songs that are simultaneously heartfelt, sincere and undeniably infectious upon first listen. Given her ability to connect with an audience, it’s no surprise that Kara sold-out the iconic Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, the very venue that Katy Perry and Sara Bareilles got their start, before ever having released a single song. And now with a full-length album on its way, Kara Connolly has the opportunity to reach an audience as universal as her songs themselves.
Her debut music video for first single, “Life in Rear View”, has garnered over 185K views thus far and the song and its video both received high praise in a variety of popular publications such as Popdust and PopMatters. Connolly’s upcoming LP of the same name, a unique, genre-bending blend of percussive pop, folk, and country, takes you on a journey from breakdown to breakthrough. What begins with heartbreak, ends in triumph as Kara reminds us, through personal experience, the importance of friendship, vulnerability, acknowledging our own self-worth, and never settling for less than the love and respect we deserve. Tastemaker blog, The Line of Best Fit, calls it, “invitingly open-hearted.”
She has this rare ability to deliver wisdom in a light-hearted and cheeky way that only someone as magnetic and relatable as Kara could pull off. “They say man up, but I want a man who’s bold enough to cry when he’s sad – If you treat me right, you can spend the night; If you treat me wrong – well then…so long” she winks in “Nice Guy”, a song premiered by Parade Magazine that brilliantly takes on our deep-rooted culture of toxic hyper -masculinity and encourages young women to demand the respect they deserve, all while making you laugh and sing along. “My goal was to create something fun and honest that you could sing to, with hopes that after a second listen you may realize you’re singing something empowering,” she explains.
What began with Kara singing, “Man! I Feel Like A Woman” at a summer cruise ship talent show as a young woman…of 6, led to her writing fully formed relationship songs back when the only man in her life was a stuffed animal named “Doodle Bear.” Since then, the San Diego native has continued to write what she considers “relationship songs with a twist,” although she now draws from her own life.
“I feel very called to empower and connect with the next generation of young women and hopefully inspire them to acknowledge their own worth and not put up with the kind of treatment that my generation and those of the past have experienced. I believe in the power of music to inspire and I hope that through humor and heart my songs can provide a new perspective for both women and men.”
Kara’s upbeat and colorful take on modern feminism, produced by Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson) and mastered at the legendary Capitol Records, is sure to be playing on repeat.
