Cara Boehm

Barossa Regional Gallery

Cara Boehm's journey with music began with keyboard lessons, around age five. As a teen, she played in a percussion group and took up the saxophone, going on to study jazz at the University of Adelaide. Performing in small and large ensembles of various genres, teaching keyboard and various woodwind, Cara began exploring different styles, and through composition and lyrics uncovered her own voice. Comfortable across a range of instruments, her work is marked with soulful melodies, unique interpretation and thoughtful expression. By day, Cara is the Programs Officer at Barossa Regional Gallery. She has a cat to support.
