Cari Q’s fervor and enthusiasm for songwriting are qualities to be sought after in this era. Straightforward melodies accompany her resonant lyrics as she pushes the limits of contemporary pop music. Echoing her predecessors, Cari Q’s unique sound evokes memories of Janis Joplin and Loretta Lynn.

After releasing her debut EP, Solid Ground, in 2015 Cari has gone on to play internationally, traveling extensively in the UK over the past year. Her upcoming album showcases a bolder sound and matured voice that illustrates a songwriter with talent and wisdom well beyond her years. Backed by a band of incredible musicians, Cari Q is truly a force to be reckoned with on the scene in her hometown of Austin, TX and beyond.

Cari Q is:

Cari Quoyeser // lead vocals + guitar

Greg Forrest Nelson // lead guitar

Chris Spencer/Rebeca Laird // bass

Paul Pinon // drums


"A vastly talented multi-instrumentalist, Cari is most renowned for her extraordinary voice and remarkable songwriting; often compared to legends Janis Joplin and Loretta Lynn. No doubt, the comparisons are justified as she fuses classic rock, alternative pop and international folk into a colorfully authentic Cari Q blend."

- Doug Leach,

"...Her lyrics create distinct sonic experiences."

- Dan Workman, SugarHill Recording
