How often do you really see a total package: the looks, talent and brains to succeed in the music industry? Whose God given name even foretells the future of her rising star? All at once 'in your face,' insightful yet simple, strong, and best of all fun, the next generation template for the female country singer/songwriter is Cari Golden. Cari's music speaks universally to the heart while offering exciting twists to the formulas that run rampant in Country music. With a deeply rooted sense of song styling, Cari is able to at one moment delve into the innocent idealism of an aspiring country singer in 'Grand Ole Opry', and in the next explore the power of sexual magnetism in 'Hearts On Fire.' With slam dunk hooks and saccharine-free vocal work, Cari Golden might well be the much needed energetic injection that Nashville has been looking for. Cari's expertise in performance and songwriting has always come naturally and has been honed thru years of hard work. This California native graduated with honors in Classical Vocal Performance from the University of Colorado. Since then, she has refined her skills (and subsidized the life of aspiring star) by performing with The Walt Disney Company and Warner Brothers along with countless gigs as a contract vocalist for various recording sessions, corporate events and more. 'I'd like to think of myself as part Reba McEntire and part Gwen Stefani. I like working within a unique blend of sensitivity playing off of strength. I try not to take myself too seriously as I have a whole lot of fun with the learning process of living.' Of one recent live performance, an LA reviewer said 'judging by the audience's reaction it was 'A Star Is Born' time.' With a potent cocktail of southern rock, traditional and pop country and a wee bit of R&B flavor thrown in just for kicks, Cari Golden gets her hooks right into you and they ain't lettin' go!
