ABOUT

I'm Cara Jane Sadler of Tennessee Stiffs, a 4 piece Austin group. Our music pulls from many genres(Folk, Country, Blues, Gypsy and more...) into something we affectionately call Death Folk. We have a plethra of original tunes and have developed a very organic way of writing. A Minnesota girl married a Texas boy and came together to pioneer music both fresh and familiar. Late night writing sessions soaked in whiskey gave the loving duo a sound all their own. Cara’s melodies range from hauntingly beautiful to wildly soulful. Blended with Lee’s foot-stomping rhythms and gravelly vocals, the two take the “Beauty and the Beast” standard to heart.

The music is rounded out by wild storylines and unforgettable melody hooks. We are a full band consisting of guitar, mandolin, bass and drums and are all vocalists.
