Let’s make one thing clear:
taragirl is not just another R&B singer.
This soul sista truly is a one-in-a-million artist with an overwhelming talent for making people listen to what she’s got to say. Gifted with a remarkable, soul-drenched voice, she is equally capable of demanding more respect from fellas (on songs like "Why Can’t Cha") and delivering a consoling, heartfelt message about letting go of the past ("Stop Holdin On"). With one debut album under her belt (2006’s The 26th Power produced by Simon Illa) and more on the way, there’s no denying taragirl is already an unstoppable force within the music industry.
Live, critics continue to rave about her performances comparing her to artists like Teena Marie, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys. This kind of attention allows her to tour throughout the Northeast, even sharing stages alongside superstars like Chaka Khan, Angie Stone, Jill Scott, Chrisette Michele, The Brand New Heavies, and Amy Winehouse.
Describing her music as sophisticated modern soul with a bit of street charm thrown in, she’s dedicated to writing songs that inspire confidence (especially in women), hope in overcoming obstacles, and that speak on the complexities of relationships. "I’d like to be someone who moves your heart and your body simultaneously," explains taragirl, who’s made quite a splash since relocating to Philadelphia from New York City a few years ago.
Coupled with her quirky, effervescent personality and girl-power sass, it’s safe to say this fresh-voiced star possesses an unusual combination of talents ready to communicate with the world in never-seen-before way. Look up and out! taragirl is on a mission to save music – with a sound, a style and a spirit all her own.
