“The Birds” by Cara Lee Coleman
One of my favorite local musicians, the great Cara Lee Coleman, will be playing a rare live show this Saturday (June 29th) at Nautical Nellies. I first discovered Cara’s music when she was a member of local underground group The Origin of The Sound Band. Since then I’ve delved into her extensive solo discography, which includes real gems like Eight Weeks, It’s Funny When You Sing Bad and RPM Challenge masterpieces like Love Songs, Lullabies and Dance Hits (2010), The Warp (2012) and this year’s Motherloaded (2013) and its piano version companion The Motherloaded Piano.
For today’s track I dug into my goldmine of local CDs and unearthed one of my favorite songs by Cara, “The Birds” from It’s Funny When You Sing Bad. You can hear more of Cara’s music this Saturday (June 29th) at Nautical Nellies with Maggie Meyer. Show starts at 10pm, and there is no cover.
