Americana Highways brings you this song premiere of Cara Louise’s “Nothing to Prove” from her forthcoming EP Fragile Heart, due out on October 25. The EP was produced and engineered by David Beeman at Native Sound Studios. Mastered by Brad Sarno at Blue Jade Audio. Lyrics and music are by Cara Louise and David Beeman. “Nothing to Prove” is Cara Louise (vocals, acoustic guitar), Scotti Iman (drums), Simon Chervitz (bass), and Adam Donald (pedal steel guitar). The string arrangement by Sam Golden and was performed by Sam Golden and Ranya Iqbal.
Like salted caramel, “Nothing to Prove” is a blend of opposites with Cara Louise’s wry vocal tones waltzing with a peaceful, almost classical string arrangement.
I wanted to write a modern day love song that still felt classic. There’s nothing more timeless and romantic than falling in love with someone unexpectedly and running away together. And I like the idea of someone convincing the other it’s now or never, like they know what’s best. Sam Golden really took it next level with the string arrangements. — Cara Louise
