Diva Folk artist Tara Velarde combines commanding vocals and
thought-provoking lyrics into a genre distinctly her own. Part soul, part
singer-songwriter, part blues-rock, and with a splash of the theater, Velarde
takes the stage with charm, sass, and a quest to find the far reaches of her
Listeners liken her performance to Brandi Carlile, Regina Spektor,
and Carole King - great female powerhouses with a lot to say. Kelsey Anne
Rankin (Eugene Weekly) states that “Velarde maneuvers her voice from feathery
to spine-tingling...She fuses a mixture of blunt and angelic vocals to express
lyrics that sound like a soul put to melody”.
With 2 album releases (“The Tara Novellas” in 2014, “Get Out and
Walk” in 2016) and 2 recent singles (“Willow Baby” in 2017, “Touch You” in
2018), Velarde stays active on the road and in the studio. She tours both solo
and with her full band throughout the Western US and Europe.

"She’s a femme fatale with a heart, and all signs point to
an unstoppable year." - Vortex Music Magazine
With a voice known to "beguile the most inattentive bar-goer," Karyn Ann has gained notoriety as a skilled singer and songwriter, drawing comparisons to 60's troubadours like Bonnie Raitt and Carole King and modern artists like Adele and Brandi Carlile.
She tours nationally, and has notable appearances at the legendary Bitter End in NYC, the Reno Sculpture Fest and the Women's Redrock Music Festival. Her latest release Be Still premiered on Vortex Music Magazine, and is soulful ballad reminding us "all to take a minute to find a moment of peace."
