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.
In 2017, Ciarra released her first full-length "Seasons," written and recorded entirely in her home. It was during this recording process that she started to experiment with different sounds and textures, igniting her love for production. After two more years of touring and recording, Ciarra followed up "Seasons" with her second full-length "Call It What You Will" in 2019. Shedding the nu-folk sound for more of an Indie/alt pop direction, "Call It What You Will" was an ambitious project that artfully portrayed Ciarra's growth as an artist. Produced by Fragale, the album was recorded at Nashphone Recording, a studio owned an operated by engineer Jesse Bolduc (of the band Candy Ambulance ).
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 in Summer 2021.
"Her sound is a breath of fresh air, blending indie folk instrumentals with Fragale’s bluesy, passionate croon." -Samantha Manzella, New Paltz Oracle
"Ciarra Fragale is an obvious talent to us, who Audiofemme have featured with the release of her newest single “Too Good (For You, Baby)”. Her new video is a montage from her last tour, which feels frozen in time now that it might be the last one for a while. Heartfelt and honest, Ciarra’s music hits hard on her newest release." - Little Star PR
On "Too Good (For You Baby)" : "Musically, there’s not only reverence for her pain but a shedding of layers: from her throaty chirps to the soulful textures, it’s all about liberation." - Audio Femme
"...the record is rich with Ciarra's unique talent: the quiet kind, the humble kind." -Music Mermaid
"Her vocals are so very genuine and honest. It’s hard to keep your ears off of her presentation. Her emotional descriptions to each word/lyric, is finely crafted – touching hearts on the way." -comeherefloyd
"Fragale sings with passion alongside her deep-toned guitar riffs, creating a strong, yet delicate performance. Her individuality resonates through her songwriting, sustaining a steady pace, and rich sound." -Sauna Sessions
