Multi-genre guitarist, Kara Brusven, draws you into a shared world with herself as she expresses thoughts and emotions through her instrument. With a background steeped in classical and jazz idioms, Kara demonstrates an unwavering resolve to look beyond technicality for results that are truly musical and inspirational. Her first EP, released in 2021 and titled “Two Halves of One Whole”, materializes this desire while also exposing listeners to both jazz and classical genres within the same medium. Additionally, at the young age of twenty-three, Kara has gained over ten years of musical experience in both the recording studio and on stage. This depth of experience has granted her the opportunity to perform alongside the renowned session trumpetist Chuck Findley and to also be featured as a musician on ABC’s WDAY-TV and UTVS Monday Night Live. Currently, Kara is pursuing a graduate degree in performance at Frost Institute of Music at the University of Miami. Beyond her graduate studies, Kara performs live and teaches frequently while collaborating on various recording projects with artists from across the country.
