    Drummers turned exceptional singers are a small fraternity. Dave Grohl, Iggy Pop, and Karen Carpenter are some percussionists who found their true calling as vocalists. The beguiling Car Astor is on her way to joining that exclusive club. The striking Long Island native grew up behind a kit- “Since I was 13 I was a drummer,” she says. “I never thought I would become a singer. I always assumed someone else would be singing but I had to do it.”

    Her EP “you say you love me...but i don’t believe you” is quite the lane change for the self-taught multi-instrumentalist from Long Island. After stepping out from behind the drums, Car began writing songs and singing the leads. Having gone viral in 2016 under the moniker SEE when her music video for “Potions” went viral, Car released her debut EP Ties - produced by Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair, Veruca Salt) quickly establishing her uniquely lush blend of raw feelings, pop, and everything real. Fast forward to 2019, changing from SEE to Car Astor, she found herself ready to make a major change as her artistic career developed and she became the consummate singer-songwriter. Enter: “you say you love me…but i don’t believe you.”

    Whether her more electronically charged music, or this new vulnerable and personal side, Car’s lyrics have always touched on real, raw feelings, nerves, and emotions. This album, though, tends to be much more personal than in the past, “I was deeply caught up and consumed by the emotional relationship I was experiencing with my best friend, so much so, that for the first time in a while, I began writing without any sort of purpose,” she confesses. “I started connecting with music more than I ever had, and every day I found myself getting more brave and open.”

    Car Astor is a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community and has performed at various Pride festivals across the country.
