Bio

Tara grew up in a small town called Kenora in Northwestern Ontario, Canada.

She cut her teeth on country music, and has fond memories of driving around with her dad in his Chevy half-ton listening to Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Don Williams, Johnny Cash, and just about anything else with a fiddle or a steel guitar in it.

While growing up, she performed in a couple of cover bands as a keyboardist and vocalist, and studied piano and voice privately.

In 1995, she was featured in a televised talent search show in Nashville, Tennessee.

In 1996, Tara moved to Kingston, Ontario and completed a Bachelor of Music at Queen's University (BMUS 00). She continued to perform regularly in karaoke contests and singing competitions.

In 1999, Tara was a finalist in the Kingston Country Singing Showdown, alongside Avril Lavigne, who went on to win the competition and begin a successful solo career.

Tara moved to the UK in 2001.  In addition to performing as a solo artist on the country circuit, she also works as a school teacher full time.

A hit with listeners as well as dancers, Tara is becoming known on the circuit for her versatile voice, diverse song repertoire, strong stage presence and great banter with the audience.  Her voice is captivating and unique, with plenty of authentic Canadian country 'twang'.  Do not miss out on this rising star on the UK country music scene.  Book her for your club or event today!
