Tara hails from Boston's vibrant folk scene and has been performing all over New England for over ten years. Matt Smith of Club Passim has called her an 'innovator'. With a single djembe drum Tara pounds out foot tapping, rhythmic landscapes to back her effortless, melodic, and soulful voice. In a storyteller style, she draws you into life's light and dark currents. Cross-cultural relationships, love, the earth, the joys of simple life, motherhood, and the struggle to be true to oneself, are just some of the subjects she sings about. Tara has been living in New Hampshire for the past ten years and within that time has found three stellar accompanists including upright bassist Ramsay Thomas, acoustic guitarist Lou Eastman, and harmony singers Shana Hall and Grace Aldrich, who have joined with her to form the 'Tara Greenblatt Band'.
Her most magnificent works of art are her two young sons. She spends her time balancing motherhood and creativity, keeping her pulse on the mysterious force that calls her to craft songs. She just completed and released her third CD 'Animal Body' in 2013, which is available, along with her other two CD's, on cdbaby.com.
