Kara Maguire is a 30 year old blues and rock singer. She has always been a fan of classic female blues singers such as Etta James, Koko Taylor and Bonnie Raitt. But her influences are more varied and she has been influenced by female singers of the 60's such as Carole King and Carly Simon. Kara is from the east coast and in fact her father is a well known Philadelphia poet. She came out to Los Angeles to sing rock and tore up the Hollywood club scene doing her own original music (she recently had a few songs picked up by television). But she always dreamed of fronting a hard driving blues/rock band and recently joined up with Jerry Rosen who hooked her up with some of Southern California's top blues players. Recently she has discovered classic Chicago blues artists Magic Sam and Otis Riush and she is now covering some of their material as well as incorporating that vibe into her original music
