Tara Linda - Torch and Sass

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/taralinda3/from/iluppai

Současná americká zpěvačka Tara Linda a její pohodové bosa novy, doprovázené kytarou, soprán saxofonem a dalšími nástroji. Jsou velmi příjemným mainstreemovým a odpočinkovým poslechem. Tara Linda je rodilá Texasanka a sama má indiánské a latinskoamerické kořeny. Texty písní zpívá anglicky i španělsky. Začátky zpěvačky byli pestré. Začínala od hry na bicí v divokých punkových kapelách, dále přešla na kontrabas až se chopila nakonec i akordeonu a ukulele. 
Na tomto jejím samotném projektu se podílel dokonce výherce grammy, legenda Flaco Jimenez, Max Baca (2010 Grammy winners Los Texmaniacs), a producent Craig Schumacher (Devotchka, Neko Case) a Michael Ramos (Lila Downs).

Equipped with a sultry voice, bass, and button accordion, chanteuse Tara Linda plays world roots; blending Latin torch and spaghetti western. A Hohner-endorsed artist, she writes new tangos, waltzes, and boleros, and skirts global genres to blend them into a style uniquely her own.

Tara Linda's performances are described as "mesmerizing" (Oakland Tribune/San Jose Mercury News) and her vocals “rich” and "sultry" (The Muse's Muse).Her voice hints of early torch, while her music is refreshingly original. What distinguishes her voice and music is her vocal depth, heartfelt delivery, and the poetry of her lyrics. She has a world music heritage (Indian) and sings in Spanish and English. 

Recently featured as the face of the new “accordionista” for the rising popularity of the accordion in the San Francisco Bay Area (Oakland Tribune/San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times, Nov 19, 2009), Tara Linda is out to show that the accordion is cool again. To this effect, she joined 12 female accordion players for the 2010 West Coast Accordion Babes Pinup Calendar/CD, a fun, girl-powered makeover for the accordion. The companion CD features her song “Fool’s Journey” from her debut CD. 

A Texas native, Tara came of age playing drums in punk bands in Austin, later she picked up bass, ukulele and accordion. “You could say I traded in my sticks for an accordion” Tara laughs. "The accordion takes you around the world like no other instrument from Argentine bodegas, through French cafés, and to the borderlands of South Texas. As a singer, the accordion is perfect…emotional and endlessly expressive.”

Tara is excited to be recording her first “Tortilla Western” CD- blending spaghetti western, rock, and Tex-Mex all to celebrate her American Southwestern roots. This special project enlists the talents of Grammy winning legend Flaco Jimenez (multi-time Grammy winner), Max Baca (2010 Grammy winners Los Texmaniacs), and producers Craig Schumacher (Devotchka, Neko Case) and Michael Ramos (Lila Downs).
