Alessia Cara may seem like a new addition to the music scene at just 19 years old, but the Canadian pop star has already established a formidable reputation as a genuine and bold musician with world-impressing talent. Thanks to tracks such as Here, the sincere and autobiographical single released last year, Cara has drawn acclaim from critics and the general public who have voted with their ears to proclaim her as one of the most intriguing acts to emerge from 2015. Exciting times lie ahead after recently being shortlisted in the BBC Sound of 2016 round up second only to Jack Garratt showing that there is indeed plenty more to come from this stylish, refreshing artist.
