Pop-rock singer-songwriter Ceara Cavalieri has released her vulnerable new single, “Used” today. Carried by emotional, soaring vocals, grungy guitar and a catchy beat, “Used” is a powerful anthem that finds her taking back the power from someone who doesn’t appreciate her. Listen to it now below.
Confiding on the song, Ceara said, “I wrote this song about being in a relationship that began to feel one-sided. It’s the worst feeling when someone begins to act like they don’t care about you anymore or are just “using” you. In the song, there’s this back and forth inner struggle between staying in this relationship where you are being treated badly or leaving because you’re sick of feeling “Used”. It’s easy to make excuses for their behavior at first, especially if you really care about them, but no one deserves to be in any type of relationship or friendship where they are feeling that way, and I hope people can connect to this song like I do.”
Ceara Cavalieri is a 26 year old singer/songwriter from Southern California. Having graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychology, Cavalieri has since dedicated herself to pursuing music full time. Her love for music stems from the age of three, where she found her voice and wouldn’t stop singing. In her teenage years she took to songwriting as a way of expressing her thoughts and feelings when her shyness prevented.
