Atlanta-based musician, philanthropist and model Dara Carter is back in Southwest Florida! Carter is a life-long musician whose musical training is rooted in the classical and jazz styles, however, her solo work has evolved and developed into a form all her own that defies convention and compartmentalization into a particular genre. Carter first appeared on “Gulf Coast Live!” this past spring along with fellow members of the all black women rock band, The Txlips, and today she joins us to perform live in studio! Carter has played shows at venues all over the country including two performances at the historic Apollo Theatre in New York when she was 15 years old. Other notable performance venues include Harvard University and a performance for former President Barak Obama at the White House. She’ll be accompanied during her live on-air performance at WGCU by percussionist Pete Flower from the Southwest Florida-based punk band The Young Dead.
