CDBABY Editors Choice & 5 STAR Recommendation ! "Armed with an accordion and a chilling voice that borders on eerie in precisely the right way..." > . San Francisco Bay area vocalist, composer, musician, Tara Linda weaves unlikely bedfellows into playful song with tales of goddesses, fearless girls on trapeze, and blue fur monkeys. Her songs are spacious & soulful. Stylings, minimal. With a tinge of jazz & blues, torch & sass, and accordion too!
"...percussion that slinks over and under, allowing the songs to be full but not distractingly big". "...lyrical content that deserves to heard".
“What spooky loveliness. This woman's voice is like a cool glass of water, and her soulful cabaret is the perfect soundtrack to a lazy afternoon....the kind where you fall asleep in the grass and find yourself in the middle of bizarre circus dreams, and you're not quite sure if that lovely accordion wielding siren is coming to save you or poison you, but you can't help but want her to come closer...." ~ Val Esway, Soup and Song, August 1, 2006.
“…There is only one other performer who pierces right through the soul with her music, Lila Downs. Tara has that unique quality about her voice. Te destroza el corazon and leaves you wondering what the hell just happened. I truly recommend checking out her performances...." ~ Gilbert Reyes, Reyes Accordions Webring, September 17, 2006.
