    "Éist le mo Scéal (Listen to my Story)" cover art by Jane Starr Weils

    .
    Éist le mo Scéal (Listen to my Story) is a collection of original songs, written and arranged by Caera and performed in English and in Irish. This album shows Caera’s growth since her first albums in 2004, as a songwriter, composer, arranger, and harper. It features songs about Caera’s personal experiences, including child abuse and other domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness, family alcoholism, and other potent issues in the lives of many people. It also features songs from Caera’s spiritual side, which are not specific to any one religion, but show the strength to move through these issues and see the beauty available in life.
