Writing was a staple throughout Tara’s childhood. As a young adult, her motivation shifted from personal reprieve to reaching others. “I wasn’t sure if my writing would take a turn for the books or even poetry, but it was continually bent toward melodies I could hear in my head" … “this love for writing coupled with my love for music, my love for Jesus was largely a call to surrender, a call to obedience.”
Tara grew up in church and was heavily influenced by the Contemporary Christian, Southern Gospel, and Singer / Songwriter genres. As a young adult, she began leading worship in choirs and praise teams which lead her to soloist and instrumentalist roles.
In 2019, she committed to bring forth her writing for the recording and production of the musical album Resonate. She welcomes her listeners to her personal reflections and moments in her journey with melodies that are deep yet structured with a Contemporary Christian / Indie-Pop sensibility.
Tara and her husband Chris reside in Northeast Florida where they are members of North Jacksonville Baptist Church.
