Ciarra Fragale Harnesses Heartbreak Style Soul On Self-Titled LP
Ciarra Fragale is an indie pop singer/songwriter, producer, and actor from NY’s Hudson Valley. By blending the nostalgic traditions of songwriting with unique new-wave sensibilities, she creates a refreshing sound all her own. In addition to making her own music, Ciarra has also composed many works for theater and film.
Ciarra’s Fragale’s newest self-titled LP is her best, most cohesive work to date. Ranging from Motown inspired heartbreak pop to modern and cerebral indie rock, Ciarra creates a distinct sonic world that allows her to display what makes her artistry so special. Pounding keys, angular guitars, and steady driving beats grace these buoyant and emotive tracks, with Ciarra’s one of a kind vocals gliding in and out of smooth and sweet harmonies showcasing her masterful musicianship and songwriting prowess.
“My 3rd LP, Ciarra Fragale (written & produced by me) is an album that encompasses the last 18 months of my life, and is an album that feels the most “me.” It feels really good to push the envelope, this is not a timid record. I know way more now than I did when I was making the previous records, both as an artist, as a producer, and as a woman.”
In 2019 after a heavy year of touring both full band and solo, Ciarra relocated to her current home in Western Massachusetts. Since living here she has written and produced many projects–including her 3rd LP, a record that “perfectly encapsulates” the last 18 months of Ciarra’s life. Mastered by Curtis Roush of The Bright Light Social Hour, the electrifying self-titled album is set to release on July 2, 2021.
